Hi friends! Kimberly from A Night Owl here – so happy to be hanging out with Vanessa today for 20 Crafty Days of Halloween! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to craft for. You can go totally spooky and scary, but you can also create cute and fun crafts! Today I’m sharing what I think is one of the “cute” variety – these Candy Corn Favor Bags!

Have you used the NEW Americana Multi-Surface Satins? It’s a new paint by DecoArt and I’m in love! You can use the paint on practically any surface, so it’s the perfect medium for things like these little treat bags. Here’s how I put them together…

What you’ll need:

  • Orange and yellow acrylic paints (I used Americana Multi-Surface Satins pumpkin patch and school bus)
  • Muslin bags (I picked up from Pick Your Plum)
  • Cardboard
  • Paintbrush
  • Candy!

And the steps:

  1. Slip a piece of cardboard into each bag so that the paint does not bleed through to the other side.
  2. Paint a stripe on the bottom of the bag in yellow.
  3. Once dry, paint a stripe in the middle of the bag in orange.
  4. Let dry, fill with candy and voila!

Perfectly adorable “Candy Corn” Favor Bags!

I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!
