Heat Transfer Trick-or-Treat Bag

by Tausha Hoyt from Sassy Style Redesign

Maybe I am the only one, but I grabbed the Halloween costume supplies and realized that we had no trick or treat bags. Not exactly sure how this happened, but we are trick or treat bag-less nonetheless.

So, I decided to remedy the situation today. It was super simple and not too hard to do. Good thing, because I need 3 of them.

First things first. You need to gather your supplies

Canvas Bag-I got mine at wal-mart in a 3 pack
Heat Transfer Vinyl-This is made by Brookie Craft. Look for it at a local craft store or online at vinyloutlet.net  You can look for this under the Sillouhette name.
Iron
Scrap Fabric for ironing

Anything that only has 4 supplies needed, is bound to be simple…right? Of course it is.

First, I used my Cricut to cut out the design. You could totally use a Google image, trace and cut out if you don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette.

When using heat transfer vinyl-you want to make sure that flip or mirror your image. Also, the matte side is the side that is facing up. The shiny side down.

Once your image is cut, you need to take it off of the transfer tape or clear acrylic side. Just peal it off. Super simple. Wa-hoo!

After your image is placed, you are ready to iron. This is where your scrap piece of fabric comes into play.

After you have the fabric over your image, use a no steam iron set on the cotton setting. Lightly iron over the image and it will set almost immediately.

After that, you are ironed and done!

Beware Sign by Summer

Once a month I get together with six of my girlfriends and we exchange something we have made.  Because we are in October I wanted to make/bring something Halloween related.  So I made this wood board that says Beware.

This is super quick and easy to make – so lets get started!

Materials Needed:

Cut the board to the size that you want and sand then paint black.  Then cut your scrapbook paper to be slightly less in size than the board.  I usually cut mine to be 1/4 or 1/2 inch smaller.

Mod Podge the scrapbook paper onto your wood board.

Cut out a fun Halloween word with your vinyl – I cut out Beware

Add the vinyl to your wood board

Now with your black embroidery floss criss cross it around the board – like a spider web.  Then tie into a knot.  You could tie the knot in the back but I like the look of the knot tied in the front.

And there you have it – a fun, quick and simple Halloween Sign.
