Halloween is celebrated in various countries around the world, with its level of popularity and customs differing from place to place.
While it is most notably celebrated in the United States and Canada, where it takes on a grand scale with elaborate costumes, trick-or-treating, and festive decorations, Halloween has also gained traction in other countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, where children often go trick-or-treating and communities embrace the holiday spirit.

Some Latin American nations celebrate their own unique version of Halloween, intertwined with the Dia de los Muertos traditions, such as Mexico.
While the extent of Halloween celebrations may vary, the holiday’s global appeal lies in its ability to foster creativity, camaraderie and the joy of dressing up in fantastical costumes while sharing spooky fun.
Paper Bag Tree Halloween Craft Idea
To create your paper tree, start by cutting the lunch bag into half-inch strips, beginning at the bag’s opening and cutting halfway down. Next, open the bag and stand it upright.
Hold the bag’s base with one hand while using your other hand to twist the middle of the bag, shaping it into the tree’s trunk.
Then, twist two of the bag strips together to form branches, following the example image for reference.
To add some vibrant color, tear strips of colored paper into tiny pieces and glue them onto the branches of the tree. Or use Halloween paper cut outs!
Once you’ve completed these steps, your charming paper tree craft is ready to be displayed. Enjoy your creative masterpiece!
