Hip reader Halloween gift bag idea for coworkers or friends

One reader created two hauntingly adorable Halloween crafts for cheap. 👻

Halloween is almost upon us and autumn lovers everywhere are relishing the season. If you love to celebrate this special time of year, you’ll appreciate these boo-tiful crafts created by our Happy Friday reader, Kyra.

She’s sharing how to make Halloween gift bags for your coworkers, classmates, or friends. Plus, how to make an enchanting Halloween village decoration.

Not only are these ideas positively bewitching, but Kyra barely had to spend any money to make them! 🙌

Here’s how she did it!

Reader Halloween Boo Bag Ideas using Peeps

“Hi! I wanted to share two different Halloween related deals. I made s’mores bags for my work peeps with skull Peeps that were on sale for $1 for a box of six at Ollie’s (and I had a 15% off coupon on my total purchase).”

“Then, I wanted to share the Peanuts-themed Halloween House I made after I saw the idea on your site.

Besides the houses for $1.25 each from Dollar General, I used a mini can of black spray paint I got on clearance at Joanne’s and some of the stickers were from a pack of color your own stickers I got at a thrift store half off for .25. Happy Halloween Hip2Save!

Ps. Also not pictured but my houses light up at night with tea lite candles I already had at home. :)”

Kyra, these Halloween ideas are fang-tastic! 😍

Both of these Halloween crafts are too cute and we love how little you had to spend to make them! Your Halloween s’mores bags make such thoughtful gifts for your coworkers and they would also be amazing Halloween party favors for those who want to be the ghost or ghost-ess with the mostest.

We’re over the moon for your Peanuts Halloween House too! It makes us smile and it’s sure to give fans of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown a dose of nostalgia.

These are such awesome shares and we are so thrilled you wrote in to tell us about them!

    Congrats, Kyra! I luv both ur projects. So sweet what u made for ur coworkers. Thanks, H2S, for bringing back these kinds of Happy Friday posts. I’d rather see what my fellow hipsters do to create, gift, and decorate…than to just see loots. I really enjoyed seeing Kyra’s successful, fun, seasonal and thrifty projects.
