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? :)
