Today’s craft project combines two of my favorite things – Halloween and handprint art!
I was thinking that I wanted to make Connor a personalized Trick-or-Treat bag this year for Halloween but wasn’t sure what I wanted it to look like. Then I saw handprint ghosts on Pinterest and I had an idea.
I could make Connor a personalized Trick-or-Treat bag with handpring ghosts! Isn’t it so cute?
I headed to Jo-Ann’s for my supplies. I needed a black tote for sure and then I just looked around for inspiration.
I came across a “Boo” Felt Patch on clearance so I threw that in my cart. Then I found Glow-in-the-Dark paint and had to get it. I thought that would be perfect since it will be dark.
All together here are the supplies I used to make Connor’s Trick-or-Treat bag:
- black tote bag
- white and orange paint
- black sharpie
- “Boo” felt patch (optional)
- handmade zig zag pattern pattern
- Glow-in-the-Dark paint
- White Iron-on letters
I started with Connor’s handprints. I painted his hands white and pressed them in the center of the bag. When the paint dried, I used a black sharpie to create the eyes and mouth on each ghost.
Next, I painted the orange zig zag strip along the bottom. I was originally going to have more but ran out of room.
Then I ironed on the letters of his name and the “boo” patch.
Finally, I painted over everything except the “boo” patch with the glow-in-the-dark paint.
Once everything dried I showed Connor and he loves it! He has already been putting his toys and stuff in it. Last night he insisted on taking it to dinner with us.
I love how it turned out! I was a little nervous at first when I started the project but I couldn’t be happy with how it looks.
