I told my sister (the magpie and recipient of the glittery witch wreath that I’m STILL sweeping up after)  about this project and said it was so easy even she could dot it. She cam back with “that’s going on your blog isn’t it? So easy I can do it?”. Well Amber, here it is! The Halloween Banner that’s So Easy My Sister Can Do It!

Supplies:

  • Paper Treat Bags
  • Scissors
  • Tape or Stapler
  • Baker’s Twine, String or Yarn

Instructions:

  1. Cut the sides off each bag, as close to the edges as you can get while still removing the whole creaseTurn Dollar Store Candy Bags into a cute and quick Halloween Banner
  2. Open the bag up and cut along the base, removing the bottom of the bag. You should have two identical rectangles
  3. Fold one bag in half and crease the bottom 1/2 inch to mark the center
  4. Stack all the rectangles. Cut 2 diagonal lines to make a V-shaped bottom
  5. Fold over the top 1/2 inch of each bag and crease with your fingernailTurn Dollar Store Candy Bags into a cute and quick Halloween Banner
  6. Slide the twine under the crease and tape down
  7. Repeat until your banner is done.

I used two different bags that I found at the dollar tree, there were 15 bags in each pack and I only used 6 for a 5 foot banner. They had a lot of cute designs but I had to rein myself in or I’d have enough bags to decorate the whole neighborhood!

If you were decorating for a party it would be cute to make a banner to hang behind a goodie table and use matching bags for treats.

  2. This banner does not look like it was made from dollar store material. I can totally do this with my little cousins.

  3. That is such an awesome idea, especially for those of us who are a little more craft challenged than others.
