Halloween Treat Bags

With the kids back in school, I have Fall and the upcoming Holidays on my mind.  This is absolutely one of my favorite seasons.  I was recently sent some fun supplies from DecoArt and challenged to use some of them to create something with them.  And we all know how much I love to create.


There were some really fun graphic stencils and some Multi-Surface Paints and so I decided to make some fun Halloween Treat Bags.

Everything looks better in a pretty package…am I right?!


I simply took some plain linen sacks (which I picked up from my local craft store) and then stenciled them with some Halloween colored paint from DecoArt.

I slid a piece of paper inside the linen sack that was the same size as the bags to prevent the paint from seeping through the sacks.

Then let the paint dry fully.  Simple as that.

Fill with your favorite Halloween treats…in this case…an old favorite…Candy Corn.

Whip up some pretty tags, or use the ones I made.

    Hi there!

    Love your Site. I am going to be making a lot of your scrubs for gifts this Christmas and I noticed that some say to refrigerate. Can you please tell me the shelf life of the scrubs and if they all have to be refrigerated?

    I will be making the peppermint, pumpkin spice and lemon.

    Thanks so much!

      Technically the scrubs should be good for 3 months. I have tested mine and they hold up fine. But…if you use real lemon juice instead of the recommended oils, etc…they may not last as long. Does that make sense? So to be safe I recommend keeping some in the fridge. If you make smaller batches they will get used up quickly before using it all.

    These are so cute!! I wish I could buy a package that had all the items in it because going and getting them all is what stops me from doing it. Well, not ME, rather my daughter because she’s the crafty one in this house. LOL

    Thanks for the wonderful tutorial!
