DIY Halloween treat bags are fun to make, especially when you have little kids, siblings, nephews and nieces to enjoy them. Whip some up with this easy tutorial that gives you a step-by-step assembly process and a bonus template so you don’t have to make your own!
- Darice Felt Sheets.

- Darice Hot Glue Gun.
- DIY Halloween Treat Bags Template (Download Them Here).
- Freezer Paper, Sticker Machine, Repositionable Adhesive (optional).
Step 1. Print and cut out your downloaded template patterns from the supply list on regular copy paper or even freezer paper.
Step 2. Using your cut out paper patterns, cut out the corresponding pieces on the felt. I used a sticker machine to adhere my template onto the felt, making it easier to cut. You can also stabilize the felt by printing the template onto freezer paper and then ironing the freezer paper onto the felt before cutting. Use the guide printed on the template to cut a certain number of each piece. See below to find out which patterns will be cut out of which color of felt.
Step 1. Let’s start with the pumpkin. You will need an orange mini loot bag, as well as black and brown felt. Cut one piece of the mouth, two pieces of eyes, and three pieces of the squiggly pumpkin vine.
Step 2. Adhere your details using hot glue, starting with the mouth, working up to the squiggly vines last. Make sure the eyes are a bit slanted towards each other and flip the squiggly vines so they don’t look so uniform.
Step 1. You will need a green mini loot bag, as well as black, white and gray felt. Cut one piece of the hair, one piece of the mouth, two pieces of the screws, eyes and their blacks. Also cut some eyebrows if you are wanting a less cute-more mature Frankenstein, and some strips of felt for the stitches.
Step 2. Assemble your Frankenstein, again working from the bottom to the top of your treat bag to gauge a better placement of your Frankie elements. I did away with the eyebrows as I wanted a cuter-looking Frankenstein!
Step 1. You will need a black mini loot bag, and white and black felt sheets. Cut away two pieces of the wings, eyes and their blacks, as well as the ears. Cut one piece of the mouth.
Step 2. To give the wings a bit of dimension, adhere the slits between each curve together as shown in the photo below, using hot glue. Don’t forget to flip the other wing before adhering the slits so you will end up with a nice pair of wings.
And you are done! Easy peasy – don’t you think? After the cutting, the assembly of the DIY Halloween treat bags is a breeze. I also love that this requires so few materials that are both inexpensive and widely available. Fill your bags with sweet treats and enjoy giving them to the kids (or siblings and nephews and nieces).
