Halloween Candy Corn Treat Bowl

 Make a colorful Candy Corn Treat Bowl to hold your favorite Halloween treats!

Halloween Candy Corn Bowl

Halloween crafts are one of my favorites to create, and I am SO excited to finally share this one with you! If you're looking for a quick and fun Halloween project idea, this Candy Corn Treat Bowl is just what you need. It's the perfect size to keep on your desk to hold your favorite spooky snacks, or fill it to the top with goodies to give to friends or co-workers as a sweet Halloween surprise!

Halloween Candy Corn Bowl Supplies

To make your own Halloween Candy Corn Treat Bowl, you will need these supplies:

Candy Corn Base with Black Paint

The flowerpot and base come attached, but if you pull them apart with a little bit of force (not too much), they will separate. Paint the base with a couple of coats of black acrylic paint. Instead of a plain black, I used Color Shift paint and absolutely love the metallic shimmer and the hints of gold mixed in with the black! Let the paint dry completely.

Candy Corn Bowl with White Paint

Turn the flowerpot upside-down and paint the bottom 1/3 with white Multi-Surface acrylic paint with a 1/2" - 3/4" paint brush. Be sure to let each coat of paint dry before adding another coat. The edge toward the middle section doesn't need to be perfect, so don't worry about using any painter's tape or stressing about making it straight.

Candy Corn Bowl with Yellow Paint

Turn the flowerpot right-side up, and use the same paint brush to paint the top 1/3 with yellow Multi-Surface acrylic paint. You may need a couple of coats for better coverage, so just make sure that each coat is dry before adding a new one for best results. Again, don't worry about getting perfect or straight edges toward the middle section.

Candy Corn Bowl with Orange Paint

Once the yellow and white paints are completely dry, use a spouncer sponge to add orange Multi-Surface acrylic paint to the middle section. Dip the sponge in a little bit of paint, and then gently dab it onto the flowerpot. Overlap the white and yellow edges a little bit to blend the orange color on top. You will need a few coats of paint for full coverage. Be sure to let each coat dry completely before adding another.

Glitterific Paint Bottles

The Candy Corn Treat Bowl is certainly adorable as-is, but I think we can all agree that glitter makes everything better! Instead of using just one color, I decided to use Glitterific silver, copper, and gold to coordinate with white, orange, and yellow! 

Glitterific contains multiple size glitter particles suspended in a crystal clear base, so you won't need to use any other sealant on your project or worry about glitter getting all over the place! It's two steps in one!

Empty Candy Corn Bowl

Scoop a small amount of silver Glitterific onto your paint brush and spread it evenly across the white painted section. Repeat the process with copper on top of the orange section, and gold over the yellow. Let the paint dry completely, and then place the bowl on the base. When you run your hands across the bowl, you will be able to feel that the surface is smooth, and that the glitter isn't going anywhere!

Halloween Candy Corn Bowl with Treats

Look at all that sparkle!! Doesn't this project just scream Halloween?! Now all you need to do is fill the Candy Corn Treat Bowl with all of your favorite Halloween goodies! This bowl is the perfect size to keep on your desk at work or on a coffee table to keep sweets easy to reach. It would also make a super-sweet Halloween gift idea for friends, co-workers, and neighbors!
