How to Make DIY Pumpkin Treat Bags:

Step 1

Select orange-colored craft paper for the pumpkin treat bag craft. Select a lighter-colored paper for the bag and a different orange-colored craft paper for the pumpkin pattern. I’m using a 6-inch X 9-inch (you can keep this ratio) from the paper selected for the bag.

Step 2

Leave a cm intact, fold the paper into half lengthwise, and attach the open sides to close that end. Simply fold up the intact 1 cm part over the other open end and glue them together.

Step 3

Fold up 2 inches of the paper from either open end.

Step 4

Open the folded part from the bottom middle part and flatten the sides as neatly as possible. This will form 2 triangles on both sides.

Similarly, fold the other side towards the inside and overlap it with the previous part. Apply glue on the folded parts to close that end (this is the bottom side of the paper bag).

Match the 2 opposite corners of the squares on both sides (of the bottom side) and create a crease on the bag on both sides.

Personalize Your Pumpkin Treat Bags

Creating your own Halloween pumpkin treat bag can be a truly enjoyable and creative experience, and the best part is that you can personalize them in numerous ways to suit your Halloween ideas and preferences. Here are some tips to infuse even more personality into your easy pumpkin treat bags:

Elevate your Halloween bag

Instead of using craft paper, you can opt for orange and green felt. Cut out small leaves from the green felt and attach them to the top of the stem using floral tape. This tiny detail will give your pumpkin paper treat bag a more authentic look, like it just came from a pumpkin patch.

Customized Tags

Personalize each pumpkin bag by attaching custom-made tags. Cut out a pumpkin shape from card stock and write messages like “Happy Halloween” or your guests’ names. Attach the tags using ribbons, securing them near the top of the bag.

Handprint Pumpkin Gift Bag

If you’re looking for a creative twist, involve the kids in making handprint pumpkin gift bags. Trace their little hands onto orange felt, cut out the shapes, and follow the steps for assembling the bags. This adds a personal touch and becomes a keepsake for the recipients.

Creating easy pumpkin treat bags is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your Halloween festivities. These delightful bags can serve as party favors, an adorable gift wrap, or even bring extra joy to a classroom party. With just a few simple materials and easy steps, you can have these cute pumpkin bags ready quickly. Happy Halloween crafting!
