This DIY Halloween Candy Dish post is sponsored by the Sverve #smokehousebbq campaign. All thoughts and words are my own.

Over the weekend I dug out my Halloween decorations and started to transform our house.  I actually couldn’t believe we’re already only three weeks away from Halloween!  I feel a little behind the ball on getting everything all set up.

DIY Halloween Candy Dish - Made from a terracotta pot! Easy craft for under $5 #SmokehouseBBQ

As I started to lay things out – the table runner, silly spider, ghost in a jar, pumpkins, you name it – I realized I was a little short on candy dishes.  Then I remembered the candy dish that I had made when I was younger as a gift for my Gram.  It was an easy project using terracotta pots, which I knew I had in my craft closet.

Supplies Needed:

Terracotta pot
Terracotta saucer
Black acrylic paint
White ccrylic paint
Sponge brush
Small paint brush
Craft glue


  1. Using the sponge brush paint both the terracotta pot and sauce black.
  2. When both pieces have dried thoroughly, turn the pot upside down. Run glue around the rim of the base and place the saucer on top. Place a book or other item on top and let glue adhere.
  3. Once glue is dried and pieces are secure, use a small paint brush to pain the word “BOO” in white inside the saucer. You can use a stencil if you want, but I like the slight squiggle that freehand gives you; it makes it look a little scary.
  4. Once the paint is dry you can fill it with candy or other treats for your family or party guests.
