Skull and Crossbones Tote Bag

Skull and Crossbones Tote Bag was written as a part of the DecoArt Core Blogging Team.  All opinions and craftiness are our own! 

With two girls, I am almost always doing girly crafts.  Don’t get me wrong, I love them, but today I was able to make a fun boy craft!  I made  a skull and crossbones tote bag for my neighbor.  It was so much fun to make!

I am helping my neighbor with her daughter’s Halloween birthday party and although it is mostly girls… we needed some trick or treat bags for the boys!  Not knowing what boys are into for Halloween, I channeled my inner eighties child I immediately thought of the Goonies and the infamous skull and crossbones flag.

I had a black tote bags on hand and cut out a skull and crossbones stencil on my Cricut.  I didn’t love how it cut the face, so I painted in the large outline.  I used DecoArt’s So Soft Fabric paint in white pearl.  When you use it on black, it is a definite sparkly silver… I was pleasantly surprised!

It only took one coat of the paint and I had great coverage.  I removed the stencil and let it dry.  I was so pleased with how it felt when dry, it was not hard and brittle at all.  It was even glittery without the mess!

I printed out the same image on a piece of copy paper and cut out the eyes, ears, and mouth.  Once the holes were cut, I traced the outline on the bags and painted it in with the Black So Soft Paint.   I let it dry and the bags were done!

I really enjoyed crafting for the boys and I hope that they love their trick or treat bags. Now off to make more party crafts!  I am so glad that my neighbors don’t think I’m completely crazy and let me help them with their parties.  Bless their heart!
