I love a good DIY project, and Halloween is the perfect time to break out my crafting box supplies and make something fun and festive.

Trick or Treating is one of the best parts of Halloween for kids, and the trick or treat bag is an important part of Halloween night.

So why send your little one out with a plastic pumpkin from the store when you can make your own themed DIY Halloween Trick or Treat Bags?

You can make friendly ghosts from pillow cases, felt candy corn bags, a dressed up plastic pumpkin, a shark, custom paper bags, a mummified loot bag, cute paint cans, and even a glow in the dark bucket.
