Halloween Treat Bags

I've been whipping out crafts left and right, lately. It's like Pringles, once you have one, you just can't stop. It's like that with crafts. After I finished the first one , I keep wanting to make more. So for today, I'm going to share with you a simple Halloween treat bag made from a brown paper lunch bag.


Who wants to spend and arm and a leg on packaging when it's just going to get torn up and thrown in the trash? Not me, that is why I came up with this easy and affordable Halloween treat bag. You probably already have everything you need, so it probably won't cost a thing.  All you need is:


Paper lunch bags (I got 50 of them for $1)

Brown and black Inkpad


Black Paint

Some sort of string or twine.


Stencil words on as many lunch bags as you need. When the paint is dry, open the lunch sack and gently rub the brown ink on the bag to distress it. Do the same with the black ink. When it's dry, fill the bag up with some treats and tie it with your choice of string.

Simple, easy, cute, and costs you next to nothing.

  1. I love the look of these bags! Our leaf collection bags are giant paper bags, and they would look so cool with some stencilling for Halloween. I'm just not sure they'll be picked up by the city if they have poison written on them!

    1. Lol! They would look cute, but yeah, I don't think they would pick them up.

  2. These are awesome, I'm pinning them.


  3. This is such a fun idea. I love Halloween crafts :)


Don't be shy! Stop by and say hello!
