When you’ve got a young Padawan learner who is dressing up as a Jedi for Halloween, you just have to make them a new Star Wars Halloween trick or treat bag to go with their costume. It’s just the right thing to do, don’t you think?!
My son (as well as the rest of my family) are all obsessed with Star Wars. To add some fun to my son’s costume this year, I created a fun trick or treat bag that says “May the treats be with you.”
I cut each of the silver fabric letters across the front of the bag with my brand new Cricut Maker. It cuts fabric you guys, and it’s incredible!!
And guess what? One person is going to win a Cricut Maker!! Keep reading for the tutorial then follow the directions at the bottom of the post to enter to win your very own Cricut Maker. Good luck!!
Today I’m going to share with you how easy it is to cut fabric with the Cricut Maker while I show you how to make this cute trick or treat bag. I’m so excited to be sharing this DIY as part of Craft Lightning, where a group of us bloggers are all sharing a Halloween craft that can be made in 15 minutes or less.

Star Wars Halloween Trick or Treat Bag
- Black tote bag (Mine came from Joann)
- Cricut Maker machine
- Silver fabric (I used silver metallic Oly-Fun, which doesn’t fray)
- Pink Cricut mat (for cutting fabric)
- Craft glue
Step 1. Open up Design Space, which is the platform where you will create and edit designs for your Cricut machine to cut. Click this link to get to my saved project to access the file for free! You can use my design and resize the words to fit the size of your Halloween bag.
P.S. This design would also make a great shirt!
Step 2. Place a piece of silver fabric (or a silver iron-on would work too) down onto the pink mat that came with the Cricut Maker machine, then set aside. When you’re ready to print, hit the “Make it Now” button. Press the flashing arrow button to load the pink mat with the fabric on it. Next press the flashing “C” button for the machine to start cutting.
Step 3. When the machine has cut out the design, simply peel off the excess silver material from the mat, then carefully peel off each letter. Arrange the letters on top of the black bag how you would like them to be.
Step 4. Add a small amount of craft glue onto the back of each letter, one at a time, then press gently into place. I used my pink mat to help me get each row perfectly straight- just place the mat at the bottom of each row then glue the letters down. Let dry following the directions on the back of your adhesive.
So simple, right? And look how cool this bag looks!
It looks even cooler when your kid is dressed like a Jedi for Halloween.
The Jedi robe was a separate purchase, and really finishes off his whole Star Wars Halloween costume!
Of course we had to have a big photo shoot to show off his new costume and bag. I mean, how could I resist that sweet-faced blue-eyed Jedi?
I’ve got LOTS more Cricut Maker Halloween fun coming up, so stay tuned!
