Lynda Highlights

She picked up her very first win in the back-to-school audition round with her kids organizational station, followed-up by this awesome first birthday highchair and then this Rapunzel pumpkin tutorial.

This week, we’re showcasing her fun themed trick-or-treat bag tutorial just in time for Halloween!

Halloween Trick-or-Treat Bags

Totally shocked that I won this round…. so excited to be in the finale!!!

The bags were actually pretty simple to make.  Time consuming? Well, only because I made three…

Halloween Trick or Treat Bag

The instructions are the same for all three bags, but today I am going to show you how to make the bag on the far right.


  • Canvas Bag (mine is from Hobby Lobby)
  • 2 Rolls of coordinating tulle
  • Coordinating fabric or ribbon
  • Embellishments
  • Hot glue gun
  • Sewing machine

First draw a line on your bag all the way around 7 inches from the bottom.  I used a silver Sharpie.

Cut approximately 28 pieces of tulle – 14 of each color. They pieces should be 14″ long, or twice as long as the point from where you drew your line to the bottom of the bag.

Take your tulle, loop it over and pin them onto the line facing down toward the bottom of the bag (use one of each color or two of the same color).

Sew a straight line right over where you pinned the tulle. Do NOT sew all the way through both sides of the bag. Only sew through the layer you pinned on!!!!

Halloween Trick or Treat BagRemove all the pins. If you want you can trim the very top of the tulle where you removed the pins just so it isn’t so bulky.

After your tulle is secured, sew or hot glue on a coordinating fabric or ribbon all the way around the bag. (I only put the tulle on the front.) It may be challenging to sew the tulle if you went all the way around. It was a bit challenging to sew even with only one side done.

Once your trim is set, hot glue on bows or embellishments.

Halloween Trick or Treat Bag Waaallaaah- you are done!  Thank you again to everyone that voted, can’t wait for the finale!!
