15 minute halloween candy dish
For a long time, my sisters and I would get together every month for craft night. Halloween crafts are always so much fun, and it’s a plus if they are easy. One year, we did these little guys, and I was surprised how easy they were!
Besides drying time, you could easily make one of these guys in 15 minutes, which will leave a lot of girl’s night for talking, laughing, and eating Pumpkin Pie Cake!
Aren’t these little guys adorable? I use mine as candy dishes, but they could really be used to put anything in. Or nothing at all.
Do you have 15 minutes? Let me show you how I made my goulish group of Halloween guys.
Supplies you’ll need:
Terra Cotta pot or coaster (Pot for Frankenstein, Pumpkin, and Mummy. Coaster for the spider)
Craft paint and brush
Pipe cleaners (for the spider)
White fabric strips (for the mummy)
Wooden buttons (for Frankenstein’s nose & bolts, and the pumpkin’s nose)
Start by painting your pots. This is a perfect project for a little helper.
For your pumpkin, you’ll need to paint it all orange and then sponge yellow and red on the top.
The mummy should be all white, and the spider (coaster) should be all black.
Frankenstein should be all green with black hair (the top rim). I did mine a little zig-zaggy in the front.
And you should end up with something like this:
After the paint has dried, hot glue some googly eyes, a nose, and Frankenstein’s bolts on. Then take a regular old black sharpie and draw on some eyebrows, a smile, and a few scars.
For the mummy, you’ll glue googly eyes on. Then rip up an old t-shirt or any scrap piece of white fabric into strips,
Wrap the strips of fabric around the mummy, hot gluing the ends down.
For the pumpkin, hot glue some googly eyes on, and the wooden button nose. Then use a sharpie and draw on a mouth.
For the spider, you’ll need to cut 4 black pipe cleaners in half.
Hot glue some googly eyes on the front. Glue the legs on the sides of the coaster, and then bend.
Then you can fill your pots up with candy.
And whalla, you’ve got yourself a ghoulish group of Halloween friends!
