We have some new DIY Halloween treat bags for you today! This is a fun project to craft for kids and it’s simple enough for kids to assemble as well. Make all four designs below with our  SVG file or PDF template — or choose your favorites.

All you will need to get started are your scissors (or cutting machine, if you prefer), glue, and some cardstock paper. If you don’t have any cardstock at home, you could also use text weight paper.

The Many Faces of Halloween

Since Halloween is a time for dressing up in different costumes, we thought our DIY Halloween treat bags should have some variety too!  At the end of this post, you will find patterns for a cat, ghost, bat, and witch. Once you have your treat bags cut and assembled, you can simply glue on the faces. You will also see separate pieces for the bat’s wings and the cat’s tail.

Along with crafting these Halloween treat bags for your favorite kiddos, you could make them for the kids in your neighborhood as well. They’d also make fun party favors for a Halloween celebration! Some other fun party decorations for Halloween can be found in this post.

If your kids are helping you assemble these DIY Halloween treat bags, it might be fun to invite their friends over for a crafting playdate! In addition to the treat bags, they could make these Halloween finger puppets to play with. Or craft some cute Halloween masks out of felt for their pumpkins. If you have little ones who want to join in on the fun but aren’t quite ready for scissors or glue yet, you could print some Halloween coloring pages for them while the older kiddos craft.

We can’t wait to share our other Halloween crafts with you, so keep checking back here for new ideas! Happy crafting, friends! ~ Lia and team
