Have you found the perfect bag for Halloween yet? I wasn’t able to find anything that I liked enough to purchase, so I decide to make one. I created this No Tricks Just Treats DIY Halloween Bag that could be used as a book bag, to carry party supplies, and trick-or-treating. We weren’t waiting until Halloween to fill our treat bags; I found some great variety candy bags with an assortment of our favorite Hershey’s products in each.

I might be partial, but I think that bag is pretty cute. It was super easy to make using my electronic cutting machine, but you could print and cut out the image I created to stencil it on. I also used two colors of vinyl to add some contrast, which could easily be done using paint.

Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  • A canvas tote bag
  • Vinyl or craft paint
  • Stencil template

Here is the template that I created:

Depending on whether you plan to paint the image on or use heat transfer vinyl, your steps will vary slightly. I recommend ironing the canvas bag before you get started.

  • If you’re painting, you’ll want to cut out your stencil by hand or with your electronic cutting machine.
  • If you’re using vinyl, you’ll want to cut out your heat transfer vinyl (make sure you set your machine to reverse image for iron-on).
  • Paint or apply heat transfer vinyl using a hot iron.

These an inexpensive enough that you could make them as gifts for a Halloween party, and this one took me about 20 mins to make (but doing several at once wouldn’t take much longer). They could be used for much more than a trick-or-treat bag. I’ve put my laptop and books down in this one. It would also be handy to hand out treats from it, or to send treats in for a child’s classroom party.

You can also print the image and use it as Halloween themed wall art.

I purchased two bags of candy for my son’s class party and to hand out on Halloween from Walmart. We’ll likely purchase a third because certain household members can’t keep their hands out of these.

I bought:

  • Hershey’s Goodies Galore which contains Kit Kat Minatures, Reese’s Minatures, Milk Duds, Whoppers, Health, and Almond Joy
  • Kit Kat/Reese’s Miniatures Variety Bag which contain Kit Kat Minatures, Reese’s Minatures, and Reese’s Pieces.

I love that the Hershey’s variety bags has all of my favorite candies in one bag, and it offers options for just about everyone. Personally I don’t want to be known as the house who hands out bad Halloween candy. Who doesn’t love Hershey’s?

    Your bag is really pretty and will hold lots of treats. I admit to buying big bags already too… and hiding in the closet to eat some….
