HALLOWEEN CRAFT PROJECT IN A JIFFY

FREE Halloween Graphics Treat Bags

FREE Halloween Graphics Treat Bags

Here is a quick DIY project if your little one’s are in need of a trick or treat bag.  This project only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and can be completed in 3 easy steps!  These graphics look great on small cotton drawstring  treat bags – but they would also look perfect on a larger cotton bag for trick or treating.  These are so easy to make, all you need is a few supplies to get your stylish Halloween treat bags done.

SUPPLIES:

  • FREE PRINTABLE GRAPHICS – CLICK HERE
  • Iron-On Transfer Paper
  • Scissors
  • Cotton Drawstrings Bags (or any cotton bags), ironed smooth
  • Iron

HOW TO:

STEP 1: To print your FREE GRAPHICS follow the directions on the package of the transfer paper.  Cut out the design and be sure to trim all edges carefully, then center the graphic on the bag.

STEP 2: Heat iron to the instructions on the heat transfer paper. This is the step where it is important that you are using 100% cotton bags.  Other materials or blended materials may melt or scorch during the ironing process.  Make sure you read your transfer paper instructions for allowable materials or fabric before buying your cloth bags. When you iron is heated to the correct temperature, press the design onto the bag following your instructions on the heat transfer package.  Make sure the design adheres completely, especially around the edges.

STEP 3: Allow each ironed bag to completely cool down, at least 5 minutes.  Once completely cooled, carefully peel the backing from the ironed designs.  If your design sticks, stop peeling, repress the graphic again with your iron, and let cool again for another 5 minutes.

So easy!  Now you are ready to fill up your small treat bags for all the little ones at your party or hand your larger bags over to your little goblins to go trick or treating!
