Make this Easy Halloween Decor Using Canvas Bags to add a little fun to your fall decor. I like to keep our Halloween Decor on the not so spooky side. I’ll take cute ghosts, goblins, and silly witches over the creepy and gore of the day. I always add a few simple touches for Halloween to our fall decor. It’s hard to believe it’s already October! That means it’s time for some Halloween decor!
I bought these canvas drawstring bags at the dollar spot at Target last year. I didn’t have a plan for them at the time, so I put them away in my craft stash. As I was sorting through my Halloween items, I found them and thought they would be fun to use for this.
How to Make Easy Halloween Decor Using Canvas Bags
- Small Canvas Bags with drawstrings
- Vinyl letters and cut-outs made using a die cut machine or from stickers
- Cupcake Picks
I used my Cricut Air Explore 2 for this project, but you could easily use Halloween stickers or vinyl letters that can be found at craft stores or even the dollar stores. Using Cricut Design Space, I found a font that I think looks fun for Halloween. It’s called Sinah Com Bold. I used images from Design Space of a simple ghost and witch’s hat. I cut them from matte black vinyl.
After weeding the words and images, I placed transfer tape on them and transferred them to the bags. I added a strip of gold vinyl to the witch’s hat to give it a better look.
Left this way, these would make fun treat bags to give out to kids at a Halloween party, but I wanted to use them as decor pieces. I stuffed both bags with Poly-fill, making sure that they were full enough to stand up.
Once I had them stuffed enough, I tied the drawstrings into a simple loop. The final addition was to add a few orange cupcake picks to each bag.
I pushed three picks into the stuffing of each of the bags.
That’s it! I mentioned this is an easy Halloween project! I’ll use these as part of the tablescape for our Halloween Party. For now, I have them sitting out on a shelf along with a small jack o’lantern.
