DIY Canvas Trick or Treat Halloween Tote Bag

Should the kids grab a pillowcase, plastic pumpkin or plastic trick or treat bag when they head out this Halloween? Oh no they should not! They need a custom trick or treat bag that has plenty of room for lots of treats, is a one of a kind and might even match their costume.  

Canvas Corp offers a wide range of canvas tote bags that are perfect for decorating for trick or treating.  To see the entire collection of totes visit the shop – Bags & Totes.

Nadine shares a fun and simple tote you can create in plenty of time for Trick or Treating next Monday.  Here is her Youtube video where she shows us how it is done

An easy DIY canvas Trick or Treat Halloween tote bag that any little goblin would love! Every year my daughter wants to get a new trick or treat bag. The inexpensive plastic ones always break when they get too full and a pillow case has no handles so she ends up making me carry the bag for her. So this year I got smart and decided to get a sturdy canvas tote bag and the best part…. we were able to decorate it how we wanted!

Make it all no-sew or pull the sewing machine out and stitch the ticking and cord into place.  This is a great way to show off your sewing skills or test them out were ever you are in your sewing lessons.  Don’t worry no one will even notice if the lines are not perfectly straight, they will think you did it on purpose.
