Welcome to the 13 Days of Handmade Halloween! I've gathered 13 of my FAVORITE blogging friends to share a handmade craft to get you in the Halloween spirit! It's Day 9 and today Michele, from Sweet Threads Clothing Co. is sharing a DIY HALLOWEEN TREAT BAG!
Happy Halloween! Add a little sparkle to your little one's trick or treating with this DIY treat bag!
To get started, you will need 1 medium size canvas tote bag in black, 1 sheet of glitter iron-on transfer paper in gold, coordinating ribbon of your choice, scissors and an iron. *Most major craft stores should have all the supplies needed for this project.
Using our "BOO" template, cut out and trace the letters on the back of your iron on transfer sheet. Remember to trace in reverse as we will be ironing them on with the glitter side up.
Cut out letters on glitter paper and place on bag. Place an old pillowcase or towel on top of letters and iron on using medium-high heat.
I wanted to add a little extra embellishment to the bag so I made a bow out of coordinating ribbon. Cut about a 2'" strip of ribbon and creating a loop out of the strip. Using needle and thread, wrap the thread around the center of loop and pull tightly. Gently form into a bow shape trimming end pieces if needed.
Sew or glue the ribbon directly onto the bag.
Your little one is all set for trick-or-treating!!! This also makes a super sweet gift bag as well if you are headed to any Halloween parties! Happy Halloween, everyone!
