Sweet & Spooky Bag

Candy is one of the reasons why Halloween is so wonderful! To children, it's like currency. The more candy they get, the richer they are.

Today, we're doing a little project to hold all the candy the kiddies will get from trick or treating.
It's a simple project requiring you to rummage through your closet.

An old tank top is today's blah.

Turn it inside out and close the bottom by stitching
both ends together.

Turn it over and make it pretty!
I used white felt for the spiders & letters.

I used a glue gun to stick them on.

Tada! A bag that's spooky yet sturdy for all your Halloween sweets!


  1. Great idea! We all have old tops in our closets, and this is a great way of making something useful out of them! How about clothes-peg bags? I'm always losing mine! Or knitting or craft bags too! The list is endless!
    I know a little girl who would just love a Fairy bag for Halloween! Decorated with sparkles and feathers! Or even as an alternative Christmas stocking!

  2. Good Morning Alice in Wonderland! Your ideas are so fun & wonderful!

  8. Those cheap plastic bags always seem to get a hole in them and precious candy is lost.

    Great idea and very cute! I have made several tote bags to take grocery shopping out of tank tops, but never thought to make a Halloween bag out of one. Thanks for sharing the idea.
