Some other ideas…you can do these with translucent cups or plastic milk jugs instead of the paper bags. You can use them individually throughout the house, outside or, if your stairs are just inside the front door, up the stairway during Trick or Treat night for an eye-catching treat for your visitors. If you decide to use these for outdoor decorating, throw a few small rocks or some sand in the bottom of each bag to help weigh them down and keep them standing upright.
