Bag three… Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty: Trace cat template, fill in outline with glue, cover with glitter. Cut a sliver of orange paper to serve as a collar. Allow this to dry and try something else on the other side.

What’s Halloween without something witchy? These cute bags will fly out of your house faster than the Wicked Witch of the East can melt. For these DIY Trick or Treat bags you’ll need:

  • Brown paper bags

  • Scissors

  • Ribbon

  • Small branches

  • Craft tags

  • Candy


Using two bags for each broomstick, unfold one bag and push out its base folding in the left and right sides.

Use scissors to cut the bag into thin strips down to the base of the fold. On the second bag, cut thin strips into the top couple of inches.

Open both bags and place the second bag’s base on top of the shredded bag’s base.

Slip in the treat and insert a small branch into the bag. Bring the tops of both bags together and tie with a ribbon. Add a craft tag and you’re cleared for take-off!
