Fall is a busy time of year! As busy moms, we appreciate a good short cut, so we came up with some Halloween treat bags that are super easy to make.  These bags would be perfect for a special school snack or a Halloween party. With only a few supplies and very little time, you can make treat bags that are festive and fun.

This year we are all about spiders, so we had to create a treat bag to match our creepy crawly Halloween decor. To create the spider bags above, start with mini kraft paper bags then glue black spiders on the front of the bag. We used Martha Stewart Crafts pre-made spiders. For the other bags, we punched two holes in the top of the bag, thread the bag with orange ribbon and topped it off with a plastic spider ring.

To create a ghost bag, cut a ghost out of white card stock and glue it your kraft paper bag. Draw a face with a black marker or sharpie and your done! If you do not feel comfortable drawing it free hand, you can use a cookie cutter or a printable template to make your shape. This bag would also look cute with a cut out bat, witch hat or cat.

To create the candy corn treat bag, use our candy corn template and print it out at 50% of the actual size. Cut out the pieces and glue them to your treat bag. You could also use this jack o’ lantern template from our Halloween garland post with an orange treat bag.

We love black and white Halloween decorations! With a few letter stickers and some skull stickers you can create a spooky treat bag! Stickers are a great way to upgrade a plain treat bag and the possibilities are endless!

We love patterned treat bags, especially when there are polk dot! We especially love mixing polka dots with stripes or a chevron pattern. Finish it off with some washi tape and your done! We also love to use baker’s twine and  felt balls from Hello Maypole for treat bags.

Treat bags are a great way to get crafty without a lot of time and effort so have fun with it!

 Trick or Treat!
