I stopped by the art store the other day to pick up some canvas totes so that I could make Halloween candy bags for our kiddos. I grabbed a bunch to feed my tote obsession and bonus...they were on sale. I wanted to keep the design for their bags simple and timeless (two of my favorite words) - so here is an easy ($3) tutorial for you:
I printed out “Trick or Treat” and a/b transferred the image on the tote using a pencil.
I dry brushed black acrylic paint over the pencil lettering to give it a weathered look.
I hung it up to dry and WOOHOO! Just like that…my son’s trick or treat bag turned into my new “wreath.”
I’m in love. If you need me…I’ll be up to my ears making totes tonight. :)
