DIY Easy Treat Bags
Why spend money on store-bought bags when you can easily create your own from items you most likely have hanging around the house? Here are a few suggestions:
Brown Bag It: An ordinary brown lunch bag is a blank canvas for your creativity. One option: Using a hole puncher and some simple twine as a bow, you can fold over the top of the bag, punch it with a few holes, then weave the twine through the holes to seal the bag. Adding extras such as candy corns or other Halloween-inspired candy attached with a glue gun is a nice touch.
Hand’s Up: Transform a clear plastic glove into a handy treat bag filled with lovable goodies such as jelly beans, gum drops, mints, whatever suits your fancy. Make sure to leave enough room up top to seal the bag with a twist tie.
Go Green: Skip goodie bags altogether and instead use recyclable parchment paper tied with an orange bow as your candy carrier. Just cut wide strips of paper, fill the middle with your favorite candies, and gather up the ends to meet in the middle, tied with a boo-tiful bow.
