DIY Trick-or-Treat Bags: Fast & Fantastic (with Tutorials galore!!)

Trick or Treat night is almost here.  You've bought your candy, got you & the little one's costumes all ready, spruced up the porch, and carved your pumpkins.  So how about one more fun little project that you can use again and again every year, only takes a minute, and is so darn crafty & fun that you will have a blast putting it together?

Trick-or-treat bags!!  I mean, why go to all the trouble of working on the perfect costume if you are just going to accessorize it with a plain old plastic pumpkin Halloween bucket?  Here are nine, that's right, NINE different tutorials (most ever-so-easy!) that can send your little prince or princess, pirate or monster, out into the neighborhood with style in no time . . .

These amazing buckets are actually made from gauze bandages and a plastic flower pot!  Find the tutorial HERE . . .


The sweetest  FIRST AID TAPE mummy bag can be made by going HERE . . .


Still hanging on to a few of those paper grocery bags from the last time you forgot your reusables?  No worries, you can use them again now!  Just use construction paper to cut out fun shapes & faces and glue them on.  I would double bag if you have an adventurous tyke who plans on getting LOTS of candy . . .
