You know how around Easter, you start seeing the icing bags filled with goldfish crackers or some other orange colored snack? It totally looks like a carrot, right? Well as I was browsing through things in the pantry the other day, I thought about using it for our other favorite orange vegetable/fruit – the pumpkin! These Pumpkin Treat Bags are such a simple idea, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner! You can whip these up and throw them in lunch boxes during the fall months!
Aren’t those the cutest things ever?!
I made two versions. The first one is just a fall pumpkin. No jack o lantern face. The top is tied with green and brown ribbon to look like the pumpkin vine as you can see in the picture below.
To create the jack o lantern face, I used black adhesive vinyl. I drew the picture of the face on the back of the vinyl and cut out with scissors. The backing peels off like a sticker and you can arrange them in whatever fashion on the bag.
Then fill the bag full of goldfish or other orange colored treat!
For the jack o lantern bag, I went with a more “Halloween-y” type ribbon.
These will make the kids smile! It’s also a fun idea for classroom parties this Halloween!
I’d love for you to pin this image!
