DIY Halloween Treat Bags!

Are you having a Halloween Party this year and want to have the coolest treat bags ever? Well you're in luck because we have a DIY just for you!

1) Stencil
2) Stencil Brush
3) Jacquard Textile Paint
4) Tape
5) Muslin Bag
6) Piece of Cardboard that fits in your bag

First, secure your stencil to your bag. This can be done with washi tape or repositionable spray mount if you have a more complicated stencil. Then put a piece of cardboard or thick paper in the bag to avoid the paint getting on the back of your bag.

When stenciling it's important to not have gobs of paint on your brush. After you dip your brush in paint, take off excess by dabbing a piece of paper towel. If you have too much paint on your brush it can seep under the stencil and make your print messy!

With a dabbing motion, start filling in your stencil. Don't sweep the brush from side to side, this can also cause the paint to go where you don't want it to.

After the paint has dried. iron the bag to heat set the paint.

If you love the bags, but aren't feeling crafty we sell them pre-stenciled for $3 each. They are currently stocked at Division and will be in the other stores soon!

See you soon!
