Halloween Treat Bag

It's almost Halloween and today I have a quick treat bag idea.  It's super simple, but packs a big punch.  You can even use the same technique, with different stencils, for the upcoming holiday season.


1.  Place a piece of cardboard into bag to keep the paint from bleeding through.
2.  Tape the stencil down (I use painters tape.) on the bag and, using a spouncer, apply paint to stencil.

3.  Carefully lift stencil from the bag.
4.  Allow to dry and then fill with your favorite candy!

I also created an elegant, Halloween door knob hanger for the Paint Me Plaid blog using a similar technique.  You can get the tutorial here.
