Trick-or-Treat Tote

As much as we love those classic orange plastic pumpkins, or a good old fashioned pillow case eventually our kids’ arms get tired and we get put on candy-caddy duty. Have you ever tried carrying the plastic pumpkins of your kids + their friends? Candy goes a-flying. Slinging pillowcases isn’t great either. Here’s our solution and here’s how you’ll do it:
Trick or Treat Tote!


Grab a black canvas tote, usually at craft stores or of course Prime-d here. White felt and fabric or hot glue! Simply cut your ghost shape out and then cut holes for eyes, so the black canvas tote shows through. Glue on and you’re all set! If you’re making multiple, try cutting out their initials out of the extra white felt. They’ll love the personalization!

And you’re all set! We’re excited to get lots of use out of these this month, no matter who ends up carrying it!

Need a costume to go with that tote? Here’s some home-made options from the archives!

Despicable Me, James and the Giant Peach, Gnomes, A Duct Tape Blue Bird that ended up more creepy then anything, A whole Halloween Parade full of ideas, and Face Painting to take the most simple of costumes to the next level.
