Trick or Treat Bags DIY

Updated on September 5, 2014

DIY Trick or Treat Bags Will Complete This Picture

Whether homemade or purchased, Halloween costumes aren't complete without trick or treat bags. Looking back at this picture of my kids from a Halloween long ago, I'm almost positive they carried those orange plastic pumpkins to hold their candy.

Today, with the accessibility of the internet, you can find so many creative ideas and tutorials to enable you to make your own DIY Trick or Treat Bags. I've chosen a few of my favorites to share with you. And even though my kids didn't have any of these cute DIY Trick or Treat bags to carry on Halloween, perhaps my future grandchildren? :)

      You've got some fun ideas here for trick or treat bags. The candy corn one is my favorite, but I think it'd have to be bigger. : )

      Oh gosh, it's hard to pick just one favorite. You really found some darling treat bags... all of them! If you forced me to pick just one (under threat of not letting me have my candy), I'd have to choose the mummy bag. Okay, now hand over the candy corn. ;-) What a great lens!
