DIY Upcycled Halloween Candy Bowl

diy upcycled halloween candy bowl

Every year, the kids in my apartment complex get to participate in Trick or Treating. Unfortunately, we’re not home very often and Halloween is no exception. So, I always put a big bowl of candy outside the door and let the kids take what they want.

This year, I decided to upgrade my candy bowl by decorating a old dish washer pod container. Originally, I wanted to make a pumpkin out of it, but I couldn’t find orange Duck Tape anywhere. So, obviously, that didn’t work out. I had to settle with my witch hat decorated box.

If you’d like to make your own, follow the steps below.

Step 4: tape the hat to the container

Create tape rolls and use them to adhere the hat to the container.

You’re finished! Set your candy bowl out on the table out outside the door if you’re in an apartment complex and wait for the Trick or Treaters to come.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave them in the comments.
