I don’t think most dogs count down the days to Halloween.

Piles of chocolate everywhere that they’re not allowed to eat…Forced to wear costumes that they seemingly do not enjoy wearing (this and this comes to mind)…The whole holiday doesn’t seem to be one marked with big gold stars on the canine calendar.

Well dogs, it’s about time things changed. Here’s a DIY project just for you – your very own DIY Halloween Treat Bags!

These treat bags make the prefect activity for kids and can be used for humans or dogs – so it’s a fun, easy way to get the whole family (furry or not!) in on the Halloween spirit.

Easy DIY Halloween treat bags - with FREE printable in 4 different designs and colours. Just print, and iron on - great Halloween activity for kids.


To make, just simply print the free DIY Halloween Treat Bags Pretty Fluffy templates below onto iron-on transfer paper and iron on to cotton drawstring satchels.

The templates look like they are backwards so when they iron on, they iron on the correct way like magic!

Bags should be 15cm wide x 20cm high to fit the designs – I bought mine from MadeIt.

I’ve made 7 different original design templates to choose from including a range of spooky Halloween colours.

One transferred fill to the brim with your favourite doggie treats and enjoy. You’ll be the hit of the dog park! Who said kids get to have all the fun? Have a fluffy Halloween!



Important Note: The downloadable PDFs in this post are free for personal use only. If you wish to incorporate any of my DIY designs in your own work, please credit Pretty Fluffy and link back to the original project. Please feel free to pin or re-blog some of the images but be sure to link back to Pretty Fluffy and the original post. Thank you!!

    What a great idea they are sooo cute!

    • Thanks everyone! They were SO super easy to do, as I am not crafty at all.

      @ Carly – I was actually thinking that when I finished them – so much so I’m putting Candy in the spare ones I made and giving them out to some neighbourhood kids when they come trick or treating 🙂
