Which one you prefer between trick and treat? Mine, of course, the treat. I am usually being sneaky and stash a few bags of my favorite chocolate candy bars before Halloween even started. Also, it is a perfect thing to have at this time around to enjoy some chocolate bars and start making fall season crafts like this simple flower fall wreath.

Of course, I love to do the trick or treating with my kids around the block. Sometimes we have a little bit of snow or rain.
But it never bothers us to spend a few hours in the evening wearing fun costumes. Also, I have to make sure the kids wear something warm with their Halloween costumes.
Anyway, can you believe I made these adorable candy corn treat bag in just under 30 minutes? It is super easy, and you probably want to make a bunch of it because it is just so cute.
To sew this trick or treat bag, you only need three sheets of yellow, white, and orange felt. You can use ribbon or baker twine to tie it. I found the materials in Dollar Tree for just $2.5 total. From three sheets of felt, you will get six pieces of treat bags.
Things like thread and tools you need are just basic stuff. You can also hand-stitch the treat bag because it is so easy to work with felt material.
Use the matching thread if you prefer. But also the contrast color of the thread will make the bag look prettier.
What You Need To Make Candy Corn Felt Treat Bag
Any dollar store or craft store carry felt material. If you don’t have one in your area, Amazon also has a selection of felt fabric sheet in various sizes and a similar size to the one I use here .
- 1 sheet of white felt size 22 cm x 29.5 cm or 8.5 inches x 11.5 inches
- 1 sheet of orange felt size 22 cm x 29.5 cm or 8.5 inches x 11.5 inches
- 1 sheet of yellow felt size 22 cm x 29.5 cm or 8.5 inches x 11.5 inches
- Seam ripper
- Disappeared ink fabric marker
- Sewing machine/hand stitch needle
How To Make Candy Corn Felt Treat Bag
By using a ruler and disappeared ink marker, measure each felt into two different rectangles. For easy measuring tips, fold the felt then draw a line on each fold.
- Divide the yellow felt into 6 rectangles. Each rectangle size 11.5 cm x 10 cm or 4.5 inches x 3.9 inches
- Divide the orange felt into 12 rectangles. Each rectangle size 11.5 cm x 5 cm or 4.5 inches x 1.9 inches
- Divide the white felt into 12 rectangles. Each rectangle size 11.5 cm x 5 cm or 4.5 inches x 1.9 inches
- Cut the ribbon into 30 cm or 12 inches long and seal the cut by using lighter to prevent fraying
- Arrange the felt, white-orange-yellow-orange-white, pin it by overlapping between one edge of each felt
- Sew the felt, and now you will have one long rectangle
- Fold in half that the yellow felt will be the bottom of the bag
- Sew the edge and turn it inside out
- Mark four vertical lines on the front and four lines on the back of white felt
- Make holes on each vertical line by using the seam ripper
- Insert the ribbon by weaving it between each hole
- Done, now put the treat in the bag then pull the ribbon and make a little bow
The Size Of The Candy Corn Treat Bag
Whether you are using the same felt size or smaller ones from the store, you will still have to cut each felt material into these little rectangles. From this size I use, I got six-piece of mini candy treat bags.
This candy corn treat bag final size is approximately 10 cm x 13 cm or 4 inches x 5 inches. The bag has enough room for three to six candy bars or mini toys.Make this super easy treat bags for your fall season craft project! Click To Tweet
