Halloween celebrates the evilest of them all. And with a little help from the most wicked Disney Villains: Jafar, the Queen of Hearts, Maleficent and Captain Hook, all of your Halloween party guests will take home some sinfully sweet bags (and treats).
Make these for your next Halloween party or use them as magically wicked trick-or-treat bags.
Time: 20 minutes
What You’ll Need
- Regular paper or cardstock (white)
- Scissors or craft knife
- Glue stick
- White glue
- Jafar: Black paper lunch bag, Round red craft store jewel (optional), Red craft store feather (optional)
- Queen of Hearts: Yellow paper lunch bag, Black marker, White ribbon, Cardstock in red, black, gold, pink (optional), Clear tape (optional)
- Maleficent: Black paper lunch bag, Green and purple paint markers or paint
- Captain Hook: White paper lunch bag, Cardstock in red, silver, gold, purple (optional), Clear tape (optional)
How To Make It
- Download and print the templates. Cut out all of the shapes.
Queen of Hearts (optional): Print the template in black and white and cut out the pieces. Use clear tape to tape them to the red, black, gold, pink cardstock (tape each shape to its corresponding color) then cut out each shape. Use those pieces to assemble the bag.
Captain Hook (optional): Print the template in black and white and cut out the pieces. Use clear tape to tape them to the red, silver, gold and purple cardstock (tape each shape to its corresponding color) then cut out each shape. Use those pieces to assemble the bag.
– Glue the gold stripe across the front of a black lunch bag using a glue stick. The top parts of the stripe should be about halfway up the bag, as shown in the main image.
– Glue the red feather shape vertically along the center of the bag so that the bottom of the feather meets the lowest part of the gold stripe and the tip of the feather sticks up just above the top of the bag.
Optional: If you are using a craft store feather, squeeze a thin line of white glue along its spine and press it on to the bag in the same position.
– Glue the red jewel shape over the bottom point of the feather and the lowest point of the gold stripe.
Optional: If you have a craft store jewel, squeeze a pea-size amount of white glue on the back of the jewel and press it into place.
- Queen of Hearts:
– Glue the black panel so that its longest edge and top edge are flush with the left side and top edge of a yellow lunch bag. Glue the red panel so that its longest edge and top edge are flush with the right side and top edge of the bag.
– Draw thick diagonal stripes with a black marker inside the rounded triangle shape at the bottom of the lunch bag, between the red and black panels, as shown in the main image.
– Cut a length of white ribbon long enough to cover the curved edge of the red panel, plus about an inch. Cut a second length of white ribbon long enough to lie along the lower curved edge of the black panel, plus about an inch. Snip a little triangle out of the end of each ribbon to give it a forked look.
– Squeeze a thin line of white glue along the lower curved edge of the black panel, starting where the black and red panels meet and ending at the edge of the bag. Press the shorter length of white ribbon along this line of glue so that the forked end of the ribbon dangles off the left side of the bag by about an inch.
– Apply a thin line of white glue along the curved edge of the red panel. Press the longer length of white ribbon along the glued line so that it covers the top of the other piece of ribbon and the forked end dangles off the right side of the bag by about an inch.
– Apply glue with a glue stick to the lower half only of the crown or heart shape. Stick the shape on the top of the bag so that the top half of the crown or heart reaches above the upper edge. The shape should be centered and the glued part should cover the top of the longer white ribbon.
– Hold the horned head template on top of a black lunch bag so that the points of the horns are flush with the top of the bag. Trace around the upper edges of the template with a pencil, tracing the horn shapes onto the top of the bag. Cut through both layers of the top of the bag, along the pencil line, as shown.
– Glue the two shapes that make up the top of Maleficent’s face to the bottom of the bag using a glue stick. The flat edges should be flush with the bottom edge of the bag, and the pointed tops should point upward and to the sides of the bag.
– Draw a straight, vertical line down the middle of the bag with a purple paint marker or purple paint.
– Draw five curved horizontal lines on each side of the purple line, and two more lines across each of the horns, as shown in the main image, using a green paint marker or green paint.
- Captain Hook:
– Glue the larger, square red panel along the bottom of a white paper lunch bag so that the bottom edge of the purple triangle lies along the bottom edge of the bag. This forms Hook’s sleeve.
– Fold the edge of the smaller red panel toward the reverse side along the dotted line.
– Apply glue along the folded strip, which is now on the reverse side of the panel. Stick the strip along the upper edge of the sleeve so that the cuff appears to be folded down, as shown. The bottom corners of this panel — Hook’s cuff — will extend slightly beyond the sides of the paper bag.
– Glue the hook in place in the middle of the top half of the bag so that it looks like it’s coming out of the cuff.
- Set out bowls of candies and other treats in the villains’ signature colors of red, black, gold and green so the kids at the party can choose and fill their own bags. They might be full of sweetness inside, but these crafty creations look just as wicked as the villains themselves.
Cutting should be done by an adult.
