Pumpkin Muslin Bag

I was playing with some Muslin Bags in the studio the other day and decided I'd create this Pumpkin Muslin Bag for Halloween. If you remember my Grungy Boo Bags, I had fun creating those and wanted to create something different this year that could be used for treats. So that's how I came up with these.

Primitive Fall Pumpkin Muslin Bags

As always, I used a pre-made muslin bag for this. Then I knew I wanted the bag to look orange, but also sort of Grungy at the same time. So I looked through my various bottles of sprays and found a copper spray, made by Tattered Angels. I tested it on some scrap muslin first and it looked perfectly orange, so I went ahead and sprayed my whole bag. But I didn't spray it enough to make it solid orange--because I wanted it to look grungy too. Once that dried I drew on a jack-o-lantern face with pencil, and then just painted it with black craft paint. That's really all there was to it!

These would be great for treats, but also just for decor on a shelf or something. Very quick and easy to make.
