Let’s make a TRICK or TREAT Halloween bag, complete with frilly trim, in just minutes! Hi there! You’re crafting with Kim of The Celebration Shoppe and I have a fun and inexpensive Halloween bag idea for us to make!
Do you love October and fall of the year? It’s my favorite! I love how the air cools and the really fun crafting begins. I make all the things! I start with Halloween and the crafting doesn’t slow until mid-December. So much fun to be made from home decorations to graphic tees to Christmas ornaments and gifts!
So let’s talk Halloween bags for all the important candy collecting! This tote cost me $3, the trim was another $3 and I made the design with my Cricut. I think my niece is going to LOVE it!
Trick or Treat Bag Supplies
Gather a few supplies and let’s get started. You’ll need:
- 13×13 white fabric tote
- Simplicity black string trim
- Purple glitter iron on
- Black glitter iron on
- Elmer’s Extreme glue
- Cricut weeding tool
- Cricut standard cutting mat
- Cricut Design Space project
How To Make A Halloween Bag
- Measure – this is an important step. Make sure you measure your tote! You’ll need that dimension to size your design.
- Cut & Weed – open a new Design Space canvas, add words and elements you like, or make my design. Cut your iron-on, remembering to mirror image the design, and weed.
- Apply iron-on – lay the iron-on design in place on your tote, making sure to measure again to ensure you’re centered. Use an EasyPress or an iron to apply the design.
- Apply trim – using Elmer’s Extreme glue (dries clear), add trim to the top edge of your bag. Allow it to dry completely and you’re ready to go candy hunting!

If you’re new to iron-on, join me on my The Celebration Shoppe YouTube channel and I’ll share all the tips and tricks for making an iron-on t-shirt, which is the same process you’ll need for this tote. Plus, I make new videos every week and I’d love for you to subscribe and craft with me! This week I made a BEE WITCH Halloween costume with my Cricut. So darn cute!
