DIY | halloween treat bags10.12.2016
my favourite part of halloween is handing out batches of sweets to the kids that come to my door! this year i decided to do something really easy that would make things waaay more fun.
trick or treat bags are the perfect way to package up candy and they're crazy easy to make. (it also means you can hand out an equal amount- i have a tendency to give away half my sweets to the first 10 children that arrive and run out too soon!) they also make cool party favours if you're hosting a ghoulish halloween party.
warning: these will pretty much guarantee you'll be the most popular grown up on the block this year.
here's a run down of what you'll need:
1. to make the topper cut a square of black card the width of your bags (mine was 12 x 12cm.) you'll be folding it in half to make the topper so measure the bags before you cut it out with a craft knife or scissors. lightly score across the middle and fold the topper in half.
2. fill your cellophane bags with sweets and treats!
3. sandwich the opening of the cellophane bag between the card topper and staple it in the middle. take some stick on letters or googly eyes and place them on the topper to decorate (they'll also hide the staple!)
your snazzy treat bags are ready for halloween gifting...
the biggest issue i had was not eating ALL THE SWEETS! yup, serious will power is required for this DIY.
