Color Your Own Trick or Treat Bag
Hi again, fellow craftaholics!
It’s Sarah, from Becoming Martha, sharing a fun craft idea that you can do with your kids for Halloween – a DIY Color Your Own Trick or Treat Bag.
This project is really simple. All you need is a cutting machine such as a Silhouette or Cricut, and these three supplies:
- a canvas tote bag
- heat transfer vinyl
The first step is to find a design you like. I chose a sugar skull because I love all of the colors that could be added. You might find a design in Silhouette’s Studio or Cricut’s Design Space, or you can use your own. Etsy has a huge selection of digital line stamps that you can easily upload into your software.
Once you have the design sized to fit your bag, place your HTV with the plastic sheet down on your cutting mat, and cut your image. Remember to mirror so it doesn’t print backwards!
I’m not going to lie, weeding this sugar skull was pretty time intensive – it took a good hour to do, thanks to all of the small designs. But I watched a show while doing it, and it was an easy task, just time consuming.
Once the design is ironed on to the bag (follow the instructions that came with your HTV), it’s time to move on to the fun part – coloring! You can use sharpies or fabric markers, but since I have about 60 sharpies and only 10 fabric markers, the choice as obvious for me!
As much fun as it was, my daughter really wanted to color it herself, so I had to give her the control. She did a great job though!
And there you have it, the finished product! Isn’t it adorable? She can’t wait to fill it up with treats. Now I have to make one for my other daughter – leave a comment if you have an idea of a fun design! Thanks for stopping by again this month, and I can’t wait until October to share another fun and exciting project idea with y’all!
Share and Enjoy
