Quick Shop


Step One

Follow the the directions on my Pieces by Polly blog for making a 20-Minute Trick-or-Treating bag to make your basic bag.


Step Two

We used one of these space shuttle foam gliders from Oriental Trading Company for our embellishment. Cut one side of the wing off, leaving just enough for it to attach to the main body.



Glue well with low-temp hot glue, both around the wing and across the body.


Apply to your bag at an upward angle.


Step Three

Now have fun trick-or-treating…
