Can you believe that it’s already October? You know what that means, right? Halloween will sneak up and Boo you if you don’t watch out! This year I decided to make a personalized DIY Trick-or-Treat Bag for each kid.
It was super easy with my Silhouette, vinyl and some Americana Multi-Surface paint.
I purchased a black canvas bag at my local craft store. My daughter decided that she wanted a witch on the bag so we picked out a witch pattern from the Silhouette store. Then, I resized the pattern to fit the bag and cut it out on vinyl. I used the negative portion of cutout as a stencil and placed it onto the bag. Make sure your vinyl is pressed down good so your paint won’t seep under the edges.
After I made sure it was all nice and stuck, my daughter used a stencil brush and a pouncing technique to paint the witch. The key to this technique is not to overload the brush with paint. Then you just dab the paint on.
Peel off the stencil while the paint is still somewhat wet to reveal your awesome trick-or-treat bag.
I can’t wait to make my son’s. He has requested a ghost with the word BOO!
What’s your favorite part of Halloween? The tricks or the treats?
