Boo Bags

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

These trick or treat bags bring back the good time vibes of using pillowcases for candy bags. The perfect size for storing an ambitious amount of candy!

I knew I wanted to add a fun Disney image to the bags. I love the designs of the Halloween balloons at Disneyland, and this year’s gave me all the vintage feels😍. It was the perfect addition!

My Tie dye method takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. So simple! Instead of using traditional tie dye dyes that you squirt on, I use RIT dye. This color combo turned out vintage/worn looking and I love it! I used RIT tangerine and purple to achieve this look. Then just use a plain white tote bag as the base. I found this 5 pack of white canvas totes on Amazon for $12.99.


Dye the whole bag with the orange dye using the instructions on the RIT dye. *You do not have to keep the bag in as long as it says on the instructions. Keep a close watch on the bag until it reaches the desired color. I kept mine in for under 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and toss in the dryer.

Use rubber bands or hair ties to section off the bag. I used two on each side to make this circle pattern.

Prep the purple dye and put the orange bag with bands in. *I kept mine in for about 15 minutes. It will look just slightly darker than when it dries. Rinse in cool water again and dry.

Then to add embellishments! I used Cricut iron-on vinyl on mine. I’ve ended up using my Cricut Joy machine for SO many things this year. My machine only does smaller designs, but I spliced the image to cut out and piece together and it worked great!

There are so many ways you could customize these! If you don’t have a Cricut machine, look into fun iron on patches, or pre printed vinyls on Etsy.

If you have your own machine, feel free to use the image below!

Keep Making!
