DIY Pumpkin Treat Bag Tutorial


  • Orange Fleece (other fabrics would work too) 7” circle per pumpkin
  • Green Fleece 3”x3” for leaf
  • Embroidery floss & needle
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Cinnamon stick (optional)
  • Candy (individually wrapped miniature size work best)

Step 1. Find a 7”-8” circle for tracing. The elves used a cereal bowl!
Step 2. Trace circle onto fleece.
Step 3. Cut out circle!
Step 4. Thread embroidery needle and do a simple stitch around the outer edge of the circle (¼” – ½” away from edge). Leave about a 6-inch tail from the starting point, to tie up the bag when you’re done. Leave the needle threaded so that you can add the pumpkin leaf.
Step 5. Cut the pumpkin leaf out of your green fleece. Here’s a simple leaf shape if you need something to trace!
Step 6. Next, sew on the pumpkin leaf using the same needle and floss.
Step 7. Place a small handful of candy in the middle of the circle. Cinch up the bag around the candy by pulling on the ends of the floss.
Step 8. Once it’s tight, trim the ends of the floss and tie in a bow so that the recipients can easily untie it and get to their treats! Insert the cinnamon stick into the center of the pumpkin (careful not to crush any of the candy!)
Step 9. Enjoy!
