For the past few years, our neighborhood hasn’t seen any kids for Halloween Trick or Treating. I always purchase Hershey’s candy bags in hopes but usually end up with candy that I take to work the next day. This year there seems to be a new trend…Trunk or Treat. Many schools are hosting these events where people decorate their trunks and the kids go around Trick or Treating. I don’t have enough time to decorate my car, but I did pick up two bags of Hershey’s candy to give to the parents that do have cars there.
A quick trip to Wal-Mart made it easy to pick up the bags of candy for my school. There are displays everywhere! You can definitely find Hershey’s candy bags in the candy aisle, but also where by where you walk in, where you check out and by the exit!
Since this is Pumpkin’s first Halloween Trick or Treating, I want to make her a tote bag. Thankfully Wal-Mart has everything I need to make a tote bag cheaply. You could also re-use a re-usable bag that you may have in a stash somewhere. First, I took the cute Halloween ribbon (that was only $1!!) and used a glue gun to add it to the handles.
Now it’s time to decorate. There are two ways to do this, you can create a stencil and use fabric paint to paint the image onto the bag like below.
Or you can use the pieces from the stencil and glue those! Of course you could do both, adding small spooky treats to both sides of the bag!
To get Pumpkin in the Halloween mood, I gave her two home decoration projects. I cut out shapes from a black piece of scrapbook paper and laid that on top of another scrapbook paper. I used Washi tape to hold it down.
Be sure to check out all the Hershey’s Halloween Candy at Walmart for your Trick-or-Treating. Because we all know there is a possibility of ending up eating some yourself, I’d love to hear what your favorite candy is! I’ve already eaten my fair share of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
