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.
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.
Easy DIY Halloween Candy Dish
Black acrylic paint
White ccrylic paint
Small paint brush
- Using the sponge brush paint both the terracotta pot and sauce black.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once the paint is dry you can fill it with candy or other treats for your family or party guests.
