As the 31st of October approaches, families everywhere are getting ready for Halloween with special costumes, decorations and traditions. Whether you’ll be handing out treats this year or helping little ones collect them, here are 5 great treat bags you’ll love. And don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to make these quick projects before the big day!

This crocheted Felted Candy Corn Bag is perfect for kids and grown ups who want to get into the holiday spirit. The lined bag makes a great felted lunch bag for the season, a bag to hand out candy or a nifty handbag for trick-or-treat chaperones.
If you’ll be home handing out treats this year, don’t be left out of the fun! Miss Spider’s Treat Basket is a great crafting project to make with kids before the holiday, and then use to hold candy for trick-or-treaters. Make several of them this year and use tiny spiders in different colors to make each one special.
Get the trick-or-treater in your life ready for the holiday with these knitted Spooktacular Candy Bags. Roomy and colorful, these bags are festive and perfect for any costume. Embroider ‘Trick or Treat’ across the front, or use another phrase you decide on together like ‘Boo!’ or  ‘Happy Halloween!’
This crocheted Pumpkin Candy Bag is a new, re-usable twist on the old fashioned plastic Jack-O-Lantern treat buckets so many of us remember from childhood.
This Felted Halloween Trick or Treat Bag is knit with a sweet jack-o-lantern smiling on the front. Show off novelty Halloween buttons by stitching them on where you attach the handles.

With treat bags like these, it’s important to remember that volume and sturdiness are two of the most important qualities. Lining, felting and keeping regular gauge in your crafting will help keep all Halloween candy safe and secure.
