We are totally gearing up for Halloween over here. Soon enough we will all have cutie-patootie little intruders at our doors threatening us with “Trick or Treat?” and looking adorable in their Disney costumes or better yet home-made ones! I am of the opinion that these little angels (or cowboys or space rangers) deserve a little treat in a cute bowl. So I made this Candy Corn Bowl for my trick-or-treaters:
Candy Corn is hands down my all time fav fall candy. Call me crazy, but it is simply amazing. Its consistency, its colors, and that flavor. Oh boy, I am getting way to excited about candy. I will stop. This project was super simple, check it out:
Yellow, Orange, and White Gillter (I LOVE the Martha Stewart brand)
Yellow, Orange, and White acrylic paint
Ok so the first thing I did was pour some glitter into some Mod Podge and used my sponge brush to coat the bottom 1/3 of the bowl. You will need about 2 tsp glitter to 1 Tbs Mod Podge (that’s an approximate ratio.)
I did three coats of each color glitter, allowing each coat to dry in between.
Once it was completely dry, I painted each layer with 1-2 coats of the corresponding acrylic color.
This bowl is holding like 2.5 lbs of Dum Dums (you can see some sticking out), so my arms are dying in this shot…
if you need a work out after crafting, may I suggest Candy Corn Bowl lifts? They are great for the triceps and shoulders.
What are you guys making for your fall decor?
