My kids are the type of kids who plan out their costumes months in advance. My oldest says that he’s going to keep trick or treating until people refuse him. They kind of LOVE Halloween. And what’s not to love? Dressing in costumes and getting candy is the best.

  1. Place a sheet of paper inside your bag to protect the other side from paint bleed. I didn’t use enough paint to bleed, but better safe than sorry. place paper inside tote bag to protect from bleed through
  2. Place your stencil in place for the first letter. I chose letter “t”. stencil in position
  3. Load your foam dome with paint and blot off the excess. I like to use old cardboard for this.dab off excess paint
  4. Use the foam dome to apply paint to the first letter. Be sure to cover the entire letter.cover stencil with paint
  5. Peel the stencil away. Since I had 2 tote bags to do, I repeated this process on the 2nd bag. This allowed the paint to dry in between the letters.stenciling letters one at a time
  6. Move on to the next letter. I like to use the stencil to help line up and space the letters. You can see through the letters to line up the next space.
  7. Continue until your quote is finished.finished trick or treat stencil on bag
  8. Let the stenciled letters dry completel on the Halloween tote.
