Decoupage Halloween Trick or Treat Bags

My children absolutely love Halloween. They love decorating the house and getting dressed up and going to Halloween parties and trick or treating. We always try to do some themed crafts at this time of year and when we were sent this month’s Bostik Blogger’s box of goodies I knew we should make a halloween trick or treat bag.

This craft is really easy and really effective. I also love that you get something useable at the end. You’ll need to find some napkins with a halloween print. We had these colourful Day of The Dead style skulls on ours but you could find napkins with ghosts, bats, spiders etc. Whatever takes your fancy!

You will need…

A blank paper bag

White PVA Glue



Patterned Tissue Paper Napkins

Glitter Glue


Simply cut out the shapes from your napkins. Spread the PVA glue thinly on the bag and stick your tissue paper on the top. Once it is stuck in place, paint over it with a thin layer of the PVA glue. Don’t worry, it will dry clear. Leave to dry in a warm place and then decorate with the glitter glue.

And there you have it, a really easy to make Halloween trick or treat bag. Your children will love filling this with sweets and other goodies on Halloween, or if you don’t go trick or treating you could fill it yourself with some sweets!


The beauty of this is that you can make all different designs and of course it isn’t limited to a Halloween trick or treat bag. You can use the same technique to make party bags or Christmas gift bags. The choices are endless!
