Hello I’m Michelle from Weekend Craft. I was lucky enough to be asked by Meredith to stop by today with a Halloween project. Just a little about myself I’m a designer that has a passion for crafting, DIY, upcycling/repurposing and painting almost everything teal. I’d love for you guys to stop by and check out Weekend Craft!
Anyone else have halloween on the brain? Ever since the stores started putting Halloween candy on the shelves I was ready. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. I must admit I was one of those older kids that may have been a little too old to be trick or treating.
One of the things I always took note of as a kid was the Halloween treat bags my Mom put together each year. We used to get about 100 trick or treaters at our house and she would have a bag for each child. She would even start prepping weeks before stocking up on candy when she found it on sale. Today I would love to share with you a free printable to make your treat bags stand out from your neighbors candy bowls.
I live with in walking distance from a Dollar Tree which is a crafter dream (especially if you are on a budget like me!) I have purchased treat bags from them in the past and they are great for the price. Forty for $1.00 that should be enough for my neighborhood I hope. Just moving into this neighborhood only a month ago I will have to ask my neighbors what to expect on Halloween you never want to be that house that runs out of candy.
With the Trick or Treat Chevron Printable make sure to print it out on a white card stock and follow the edges to cut along the rectangle.
Once you have the tags cut out simply fold them in half.
Stuff the bags with your desired candy. My trick or treaters will be getting 3 fun size bars. Once the bag is stuffed fold over the cellophane top and add the tag. Now you can adhere the bag with tape or my recommendation would be to just staple it right on to the bag.
Make sure to download the printable below and feel free to share your treat bags with Weekend Craft on any of our social pages or just follow along!
