Happy Halloween! The best day of the year is finally here. Uh-oh. . . wait just a second. . . you just realized that you are going trick-or-treating tonight (yourself or taking little ones) and you forgot the most important thing – a candy bag! You can do this in a few hours, so get started now. Guess what? Kids can help, too. Have fun with this one.
Gather These Supplies
FolkArt Acrylic Paint Pure Black
Mod Podge Glitter Silver – you can use any formula, but the glitter shows up very well on black!
Grocery bag – use full size like I did or cut and tape to make smaller. Remember to tape on the inside if you trim it
Martha Stewart Halloween templates – nice little roundup from Place to Bloom
Halloween scrapbook paper – 1 sheet
Scrapbook paper – 1 sheet for letters (I used cream)
Embellishments – whatever you have laying around; I used ribbon and buttons
1” Flat Paint Brush
Craft Knife and Mat
Pencil or Pen
Here’s how it’s done.
While you are waiting for the bag to dry, you can do one of two things. You can print up a font on a computer, or you can do like I did and hand write it. I have goofy handwriting so I wanted to use it. I sketched some letters out on my second sheet of scrapbooking paper. Cut out these letters when you are done and arrange to the front of the bag – Mod Podge down.
Allow the entire bag to dry and then go back and add some embellishments if you choose. I added ribbon and buttons to the handle. Allow to dry until you head out on your Halloween route.
