Make Your Own Crocheted Trick-or-Treat Bags!
I love Halloween! It’s my second favorite holiday, and I look forward to it every year. As a kid, I especially loved the trick-or-treating. It was usually freezing outside and my heavy winter coat covered up my costume, but I didn’t care. I mean, what kid doesn’t love trick-or-treating—it’s FREE CANDY. My sister and I used pillowcases to hold our candy (because giant container = more candy), but I secretly always envied the kids who had cute trick-or-treat bags. You know, the big plastic pumpkins, the homemade ghost-shaped bags—so adorable, and so seasonally appropriate!
Sadly, I’m too old to trick-or-treat now, but I still have a weakness for cute candy bags. I have a few nieces and nephews who love to trick-or-treat, though, and I’ve been on the lookout for cute crocheted bags to make for them. So I was pleasantly surprised a few weeks ago to hear about a couple of crocheted trick-or-treat bags we have available in our store—they’re perfect for the kiddos in my life! There are three kit options: a pumpkin, a mummy, and a Frankenstein. Each kit contains enough yarn to make one bag. Read on for more information about each one!
Ditch the cheap plastic pumpkin for our Pumpkin Treat Bag. This simple and fun-to-make jack-o’-lantern bag is sure to make your little one smile. The bag’s base has a 6-inch circumference and it’s 6” tall, so it really hits the sweet spot (see what I did there??) between a too-small bag that only holds enough candy to last a week and a monstrous pillowcase that holds enough candy to last until next Halloween.
The lovable Mummy Treat Bag is just what your kiddo needs to add some flair to her Halloween! This bag is as fun to crochet as it is to carry, and it’s sure to be a hit with your kid, her friends, and all the neighbors! With a 7” base circumference and 7.5” height it’s a bit bigger than the pumpkin bag, so it’s perfect for older kids who want to collect a bit more candy.
If you’re looking for a unique trick-or-treat bag, look no further than the Frankenstein Treat Bag. This classic Halloween monster has never been so sweet—just look at that face! Made primarily with single crochets, this bag works up quickly so you have plenty of time for Halloween fun. This bag is the biggest of the three, with an 8” x 6” base and 7” height, which makes it great for keeping by your door for all the trick-or-treaters who come to call.
If you, too, have a fondness for cute trick-or-treat bags and know some kids who need a new way to collect their candy, check out our crocheted trick-or-treat bags. With three options in these fun kits, you’re sure to find one that your kiddo will love—or if you have multiple kids in your life, make all three!
