Halloween is right around the corner and it’s time to retire those old pillow cases and plastic bags and upgrade to something a little sturdier for collecting candy! No body wants their bag to break or get too heavy when toting it around the neighborhood, which is why this t-shirt yarn tote is the perfect compromise! So let’s gather our supplies and put on our creative Halloween thinking caps, it’s time to create!

The main part of your bag is now complete! Now comes the fun part…
Using your felt, cut out any fun Halloween design your heart desires! Have fun and be creative. I decided to cut out “TRICK OR TREAT” in a spooky font.
Next, use your hot glue gun and glue your design on your bag. Be sure to place a piece of cardboard or paper inside your bag to prevent any hot glue from transferring.
And there you have it! One spooky Halloween tote to carry all your yummy candy around in! This bag is really sturdy and holds more candy than you would imagine! Feel free to create any design to add to your bag, and maybe add something fun to the other side! Happy Haunting!
