Make Halloween magic without toil or trouble!

Things You'll Need

  • Printed design
  • Bags of choice
  • Crayons, colored pencils, or markers
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive backed paper or paper and glue
  • Overhead transparency film or colored cellophane

How to Make

  • Choose from the Witch, Pumpkin or Monster Design. Print the design on paper (use a colored design or print in black to color it yourself).

  • Use scissors to cut out the design.

  • Trace the inside of the mouth to the bag and transparency film.

  • Cut out the mouth on the bag, cutting slightly outside the traced line.

  • For the transparency film, cut slightly outside the lines to leave the ability to glue to the design.

  • Apply glue to the back of design or remove adhesive backing paper.

  • With back side up, place the transparency film or colored cellophane over the mouth opening.

  • With front side up, lay the design on the bag, lining up the outside edges and mouth opening.

  • Set aside to dry.

  • Note: Check your local craft supply store for materials.
