Let Bags Dry

Allow Bags to Dry

Once dry, shake off excess glitter and fill bags with Halloween-themed treats and small trinkets.

Materials Needed:

Cut Out Patterns and Trace Onto Bags

Download and print templates, attached above, onto standard printer paper (Image 1). Using scissors, cut carefully around design's outside edge to create a pattern. Lay pattern on muslin bag, and using a pen or pencil, carefully trace around outside (Image 2). Tip: Or you can sandwich transfer paper between template and bag then copy design onto bag by going over the design with a pen or pencil.

Paint and Glitter Bag

Choose your paint color and paint inside the traced design (Images 1 and 2). While paint is still wet, sprinkle glitter on top and allow bag to sit undisturbed for a few minutes while paint dries (Image 3). Once dry, shake off excess glitter and fill bags with Halloween-themed treats and small trinkets (Images 4 and 5).
