If you expect a lot of children coming round trick or treating, or you're hosting a big Hallowe'en party, then costs can add up quickly. You can buy treat bags in the shops, but here's a simple and cheaper way to make your own custom-made bags. Some local businesses will even be happy to donate these film-fronted bags, especially if it's for a good cause like a school party.

Time: 10 minutes (more if you are making a LOT of bags)
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's
Level: Medium

Materials
Film-fronted cellophane bags
Hallowe'en cutouts (you can download these and print them)
Scissors
Craft glue (the stick stuff is good for this craft)



name labels, spooky, hallowe'en


Method
Download and print a selection of Hallowe'en shapes. There are some good sites out there that give really cool ones for free, as long as they are for personal use. I used ones from Love the Day, it's a great resource for printables for any kind of party.

Cut out the shapes that you want to use - I used a craft cutout intended to be a candle wrapper which was a perfect background for the treat bags.

First, glue in the main shape. It'll be a bit tricky to glue and then slide in under the cellophane, but once you get the knack of folding and sliding it's really quick to do lots of these.

Then, pick an extra shape to add to the top. I picked cutouts with a Hallowe'en message.

Or, if you're making the bags for a party, print out spooky or vintage looking labels and write the children's names on them in fancy writing.

Finally, fill with Hallowe'en treats!
