How to Make a Queen of Hearts Guards Bag with Felt
This year for Halloween, our family costume theme is Disney Villains. My oldest daughter is going to be the Queen of Hearts, so I wanted to make her a Queen of Hearts Guards Trick or Treat Bag to go along with her outfit. If you follow me, you know I love making trick or treat bags to go with our theme like the Cousin It trick or treat pail I made to go with her Wednesday Addams costume.

Here’s What you Need
Time: One Hour
- White Canvas Bag
- Red Felt
- White Stiff Felt
- Red Sharpie
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
- Fabric Scissors
I purchased the white canvas bag from Hobby Lobby for just a few dollars. It’s the perfect size for a Halloween trick or treat bag. You can buy them anywhere that sells crafts. They can be found in the T-Shirt making section with the fabric paints and iron-on transfers.
I decided on the number 2 card for this Queen of Hearts Guards Trick or Treat Bag project. Here is what you need to cut out:
- 1 Large Red Heart (head)
- 1 Medium White Heart (head)
- 2 Red Half Circles (shoulders)
- Small Red Heart (nose)
- Smaller Red Heart (mouth)
- 2 Medium Red Hearts (center)
- 2 Small Hearts (by number 2)
To help, fold the felt in half when cutting out the hearts to get even sizes.
Used this photo to locate placement and approximate size of each cut-out. Remember, that it doesn’t have to be perfect. To get two alike sizes, cut one to use as the template, fold it in half, and cut around it.
Before you glue them down, draw each number 2 with a pencil first. Remember that the bottom “2” is upside down. Pencil is best because you can erase it if you mess up. Next, trace over each number “2” with a red permanent marker.
Lastly, hot glue each piece in place. It is important to use stiff felt with the white heart for the guard’s head because it will stay in place and upright on the bag.
