Make your own goody bag this Autumn

Make your very own waterproof goody bag to carry all of your discoveries that you find on autumn walks. Why not include some leaves in the layers of your bag and try to find the same shapes on your walk.

This goody bag is also a great idea for Halloween! Are you going trick or treating this year? Why not make your very own goody bag to carry all of your treats, you could even make one to match your costume.


You will need:

  • Cling Film
  • Collage materials: Tissue Paper, Cellophane, Paper, Feathers, Leaves
  • Sequins
  • Cellotape
  • Scissors

Step 1 

Cut a length of cling film roughly 60cm long.


Step 2

Sprinkle the collage materials onto the cling film, don’t put everything in at once as you will be creating layers to make your bag strong enough to hold lots of treats.


Step 3

Cut another piece of cling film and place over the top of your previous piece, this should hold all the decorations in place.

Step 4

Repeat steps 2 and 3 another 4 times. You should end up with 6 layers of cling film.


Step 5

Once you have added all the decorations you want to your bag. Fold over the edges to create a neat seam and keep all the decorations in place.

Step 6

Fold the whole thing in half like a book, then cellotape along the side and along the bottom. You will need to fold the cellotape over the two sides of the bag. Put your hand inside the bag to check for any holes.


Step 7

Create a handle by cutting 30cm of cling film. Along one edge place some decoration, fold over approx. 3cm.  Add some more decorations along the fold and fold again, repeat this until you have run out of cling film. This should then be strong enough to form a handle.

Step 8

Cellotape the two ends of the handle to the inside of the bag, make sure it is secure so that you don’t loose all of your goodies.


Your bag is now finished and ready to hold all your amazing goodies, whether it be leaves and conkers or yummy surprises from Halloween.
