The following post is apart of Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores Celebrate the Season campaign. I received compensation for this post but all opinions are 100% my own and I’m excited to share! #spookyspaces
To say that I’m busy would be an understatement. This time of year is flat out crazy for me. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen a peek into my craziness. But I wanted to do a fun Halloween craft since usually I just have to watch everyone else part take in the festivities. Little did I know that the nieces would go gaga over this project.
When I showed up with these simple goodie bags they were so smitten. My favorite part though is that they took just a few minutes to make and can be put together from really basic and inexpensive craft supplies that you can find at your favorite Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store.
No Sew Halloween Treat Bags Tutorial
- googly eyes
- glue (I used my glue gun)
- Start by drawing your images. I made really basic shapes on scrap paper and then traced it onto the felt with a fabric marker. And the ghost was so basic that I just free handed that with scissors.
- Glue on the eyes and the face pieces.
- You want to cut strips of fabric that will be the body of the treat bag. Mine were 3 inches by 25 inches but you’ll want to base it on the size of your design pieces. It should be long enough to extend as a handle when positioned with your design pieces. Then overlap and glue the ends of each piece together to form a circle.
- Then with glue draw a U shape on the WRONG/inside side of your front design piece. Curve the strap circle so that it alines with the glue and attaches. I like to use hot glue because it’s quick drying and strong.
- Now draw a line of glue on the edge of the strap piece just enough to attach the back piece. Attach the back piece.
- If you want a slimmer handle like I did fold it in have and with an angled cut slice off a little of the handle making sure not to cut the front or back piece.
- Fill with treats and hand to your favorite spooky friend!
I can see them being really fun to put all kinds of treats, candy like we did, caramel apples, or even cupcakes. And really I was not joking when I said that the girls loved these bags!
