Take one bag and cut all sides down to the bottom of bag.
The more strips cut the better it looks.
Take the remaining bag and just cut the top 2 inches to help it match the outer bag.
Place your goodies in the second bag.
Place the goodie bag on top of the frayed bag, like so.
Then gather up the outer bag around the stick.
Hold in the center and tie on raffia.
There you have a great, CHEAP, Halloween goodie bag, or even just a cute decoration for the kids to make.

Here are my hints:
Make sure that you use large rubber-bands for the outline of the pumpkin. We did not! I had to take a paint brush and Clorox to make the pumpkin outline more noticeable. Also we let them soak for at least 3 minutes in the dye and it was dark. So I would let them sit for double the time it says. It was dark tangerine and came out really light orange. Other than that it was a really easy and fun activity.
Drama Queen did the smaller ones, I would recommend lots on the smaller ones, both front and back.
Both were adorable and so fun for a family project!!!
