Weekend Rewind — Pumpkin Printed Treat Bags

Emily still has this trick-or-treat bag she decorated last year, and she plans to use it for trick-or-treating again this year! We have some great posts lined up for next week, so be sure to check back. You won’t want to miss it!

Today’s project was inspired by Lisa Anne from Smell the Coffee, Lisa! She recently featured a great Halloween Spooktacular post with all sorts of neat crafty ideas. Lisa Anne plans to sew Halloween treat bags this year, and I thought that was a terrific idea, so we made our own too.

I made a very simple drawstring bag from some scrap fabric, and Emily enjoyed printing pumpkins on it with potato stamps.

She even made mini-pumpkins with her fingerprints. This was all her idea, and she was quite proud of herself.
The stems were also made using a potato.
She was having so much fun with this! I think she is greatly anticipating Halloween this year.
She is already envisioning this big bag filled with candy… oh my!
I added this post to:


  1. I love the sparkle in Emily’s eyes!

  2. I just looked at this post yesterday. I think we are going to do this over the next few days.

  3. I remember this! Emily looks so much younger here…

  4. Halloween, the holiday that all dentists think about their increased business…… πŸ™‚

  5. oo very cute!! I love the mini pumpkin finger prints! Great Job Emily!

  6. What a great job she did and it will be awesome for Trick or Treating!

  7. In my house, the Mom also looks forward to the bag full of candy… since there is a one candy piece parental-inspector fee. (:

    I love these bags! They did an awesome job.

    • Thank you! I’m hoping Emily can make another one for Clara this year, but perhaps Clara will make one herself!
