Halloween is an exciting occasion when kids, teenagers, and adults dress up in spooky and fun costumes and go trick-or-treating. While choosing the right Halloween costume is essential, a trick or treat bag is also crucial to carry treats. Instead of using a store-bought tick or treat bag, making a DIY one can be a fun way to customize and get creative for Halloween. In this blog, we have compiled a list of DIY Halloween trick or treat bag ideas, following which you can make a custom bag with simple materials at home.
1. Jack-o-Lantern Bucket
A jack-o-lantern bucket brings a classic Halloween vibe to the trick-or-treating festivities. To make it, grab a plastic pumpkin pail, cut out a few triangles and a smile using black felt or paper, and glue them onto the pumpkin pail using hot glue. Add a leaf and stem cut out of green felt or paper and attach it on top.
2. Monster Treat Bag
A monster-themed bag is a fun and frightful addition to your trick or treat attire. To make it, choose any colored felt or fabric, cut it into a square or rectangular shape, and sew or glue the sides together. Take some googly eyes, glue them on the bag for the eyes, cut out felt zigzag teeth, and attach them beneath the zipper opening. Stick-on felt pieces or pom-poms work great for the bag's nose, ears, and hair.
3. Black Cat Bag
A cat-themed bag is perfect for Halloween. You can create a cat tote bag at home with a black felt, sticky-back Velcro, and fabric glue. Cut out two triangles for ears and two circles for eyes from the black felt and glue them to the bag. Cut out a circle of yellow felt for the cat's nose and a thin strip of white felt for the whiskers, and stick or glue them onto the front of the bag.
4. Spiderweb Tote Bag
Spiderweb tote bags can be a unique addition to Halloween. To make one, take a plain canvas tote bag, draw spiderwebs around the sides using a light pencil, and trace them using a black fabric marker. Add spider-shaped iron-on patches, plastic spiders, or spider die cuts to complete the spooky look.
5. Candy Corn Trick or Treat Bag
A candy corn trick or treat bag is visually appealing and easy to make. To make it, start with a plain white or yellow fabric tote bag, paint the lower bottom orange and the top portion yellow, and let it dry. Finish with a light coating of a clear sealant to keep the fabric clean.
These ideas are easy to customize and perfect for kids and adults alike. Aside from these ideas, you can make whatever kind of tick or treat bag you want.
