Halloween Treats Bags 3 Ways Pumpkin Ghost & Bat

Halloween treats bags, I have made 3 different shapes; a ghost, a pumpkin and a bat. They are a super cute way of handing out treats at a Halloween party, or to trick or treaters. Also they make a sweet Halloween decoration when hung up in a garland.

These bags are very simple to make and are made almost the same way as my Valentine Map Treat Bags. I have included a free halloween shapes template, that you can download for this craft project.

As well as being an upcycler and blogger I am a Beaver Scout leader. I have been making these Halloween treats bags for my little Beaver Scouts. I can hang them in a garland and use them as decoration. Then at the end of the evening I can then give each child Halloween treats bag to take home.

  13. Write BOO! onto the black gift tags with the chalkboard pen. Attach the gift tag to your Halloween treats bags with the twine. If you sew the twine in with bags as you stitch them up, they can act as a rip pull for opening the treat bags.

If you have never sewn on paper with a sewing machine, then you are in for a treat. I love to sew on paper with the sewing machine, to me paper seems to flow better through the machine than fabric. However make sure that you use a large stitch setting otherwise the paper will tear really easily.

  1. Love this idea and its multiple uses. How fun for the kids to be able to rip into those shapes to get their goods! Visiting from Vintage Charm party.

  4. I absolutely love how these came out! They are so adorable! I think that I would probably glue the two sheets of paper because I don’t own a sewing machine and hand sewing would take too long…unless I used a thicker yarn..either way, it’s a great little project!
