Materials Needed:

  • plain canvas tote bags
  • water-based craft paint (black, green and purple)
  • glitter (black, green and purple)
  • pen/pencil

Cut Out and Trace Pattern

Download and print the three Halloween designs attached above (Image 1). Using scissors, cut carefully around your chosen design then lay it on the tote bag and trace around pattern with a pen or pencil (Image 2).

Paint and Glitter Tote

Using a small paintbrush, outline the design then fill it in with paint (Image 1). While paint is still wet, pour glitter over the painted design (Image 2). Let the glitter sit for 5-10 minutes while the paint dries, then pour off excess glitter (Image 3). Tip: Pour glitter onto a sheet of paper you can roll into a funnel then pour unused glitter back into its container for future projects.
