They’re fun to make and give a glowing charm to your home.


Paper lunch sacks, preferably white
Razor blade and cutting mat
Holiday stickers
Flameless tea lights (LED lights)
Paper weights, like rocks, rice, beans


Step 1: Using scissors, cut the top of each sack into a scalloped shape. You can do this with pinking shears or make your own with scissors. First, fold your sack in half at the top so you get the scalloped shape even on both ends of the sack. Then make crescent shapes up and down the top of the sack. You could make zigzag shapes or really any shape you like; it just gives it more of a finished look.

Step 2: If you want to create an image on the bag, you’ll need a razor blade to make the cut. First unfold the sack out all the way, so the sides are folded out. If you don’t do this, the cuts will be made on the sides of the bag as well, unless that’s the look you’re going for. Next, lightly draw an image with a pencil on the top of the sack.

Place stickers on each side of the sack so the light can shine throughout either side.

Step 4: Before these sacks are ready for the outdoors, they need a light and a paper weight to hold the sacks down. It might be windy on Halloween night, and you don’t want these sacks flying around. I added a handful of pebble rocks to each sack, as we have a driveway full of them. You could add rice, large rocks, uncooked beans, etc. Then place your light in the center of the bag, nestled in the rocks.
Now light them up on Halloween night and they’re ready for the trick-or-treaters! Have fun crafting this Halloween!
