I feel like saying I love sharpies is as cliche as saying I love pumpkin treats and wearing boots in the fall. Everyone knows sharpies are the best and getting a new pack of them makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning. Anyway, now, they have a NEON pack! Oh yeah. I kind of have an obsession with jazzing up tote bags lately so when I saw that I had the opportunity to try out the neon sharpies I knew I wanted to do fun DIY Trick or Treat bags for my nephews!

Here’s what you need:
a plain canvas tote bag
neon sharpies
black sharpie
pencil
halloween coloring page printed in black and white
scissors

You could use pretty much any free coloring page. I printed the Jack-O-Lantern from here, the Frankenstein from here and the Bats from here!

I headed to Target to grab the neon pack and of course I found some sweet clearance party supplies. To make things even better, there is a $1 off coupon at Target.com right now for the neon sharpies! Don’t forget to print it before your next trip! Then my totes are from Hobby Lobby. A 3-pack is less than $5 after using their 40% off coupon. So, all together making all three totes cost me about $10.

So here’s the tutorial:

Step 1: Cut out the main shapes from your coloring page and lightly trace them onto your bag with a pencil. So lightly that it would barely show up in a photo. I had to contrast this a ton so I could show you!

Step 2: Trace your pencil lines with sharpie, then color them in with whatever Neons you choose.

Step 3: Oh wait there is no step 3, that’s how easy this project is! Personally I love the bat one best.
