DIY: Easy Candy Corn Trick or Treat Tote

Done! The marker only looks pale on the left because of the light coming in from the window, its writes quite dark, and it doesn't belld, even on this thin cotton. Now you're ready to fill her up with candy! You can also stitch some scary black ribbon onto the handles if you wanted to....

What you’ll need:

Plain muslin tote

Freezer Paper

Pencil

Ex-acto knife

Iron

Paint brush

Fabric Paint in White, Yellow & Orange

Fabric marker in Black

Making sure that the shiny side is down, position it on your tote where you want it. I decided on the middle, tilted slightly in a jaunty fashion. With a moderately warm iron, press the freezer paper onto the tote.
