Craft Corner: "Hand"-Made Halloween Treat Bags

🎃 Cool Craft for Halloween

By Diane Kehm October 23, 2013

Make these cute handprint trick-or-treat bags with your kiddos and you can use them for years to come!

What You Need:

  • Black reusable shopping bags (check your local craft store)
  • White fabric paint
  • 3D puffy paints in Halloween colors
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Paintbrush or sponge
  • Glue gun

What You Do:

1.) Paint your child's hand white.

2.) Place a piece of cardboard inside the shopping bag, center your child's hand over the bag, and press down. Make sure the bag is upside down before you print your ghost. Let the handprint dry completely.

3.) Use black 3D puffy paint to draw a face on the ghost.

4.) Write "BOO!" or "EEK!" in the corner of the bags and your child's name on the bag.

5.) Use the ribbon to make a hair bow or tie to add to the ghost if desired.
