Scare the Pants Off Those Trick or Treaters!




Intro: Scare the Pants Off Those Trick or Treaters!

Oh I had fun with this last year and will probably make a scary candy bag for years to come! 

Step 1: Prepare the Bag

Simply roll down the top of a brown paper grocery bag and cut a 4" x 2" hole down near the bottom. 

Step 2: Prepare the Sock

Take an old sock and cut the foot off and staple what is left of it to around the hole. 

Step 3: Fill the Bag

Then fill the bag with the trick or treat candy. 

Step 4: Scare Their Pants Off!

Put your hand thru the sock and when the little kiddies reach in to grab candy, you grab their sticky little hands!  ah ha ha!  I do not recommend doing this to the really young ones, I did manage to make one little girl cry last year.

    This is a great, simple idea. 

    I'd recommend putting all your information into just a couple of steps, and deleting the duplicate photos.  People will appreciate that fact that it's a simple and good idea, even if it only takes two steps to explain it.

     This is a fabulous idea and a good, creepy scare, but the instructable itself would benefit greatly from having more than two photos.
