Easy trick-or-treat bags just in time for Halloween

October 25, 2021

Skip the store and make these easy last minute trick or treat bags instead.


With less than a week to go before Halloween, options for cute or fun trick-or-treat bags may be pretty slim.

Have a spare tote bag or basket laying around? A Cricut machine and iron-on or adhesive vinyl make creating a personalized bag for trick-or-treating fun and simple. We collected a few examples of ready-to-make projects in Design Space to make your easy trick-or-treat bags this Halloween. While these are all made with iron-on, you could also use removable vinyl for a temporary, one-day-only situation. You can even use a paper or plastic bag if you don’t have a tote laying around.

As with most of our Design Space projects, customizing the design to include a name or other personal element helps make the end result even more unique.

Don’t stop at bags — while you’re at it, check out some ideas for going costume casual this Halloween. These DIY shirts are perfect for Halloween, but feel free to use them year-round!
