Make Some Fall Candy Dishes

With Fall finally here, and the leaves just starting to change here in the White Mountains of Arizona, I always love having my home decorated to match.  I saw something like these on Pinterest and Real House Mom’s blog, and thought that they would be fun to make.

I wish that I would have bought some of the pots at Dollar Tree, when they were still being sold, but missed out on that deal.  I got mine at Lowe’s and didn’t end up spending too much, which was a good thing.  I also love being able to get the samples of paint for only about $2.  You can get any color you want, and they end up lasting for a long time.  So much cheaper, in the end, than craft paint!!

I hope you like them!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks!!

Make Some Fall Candy Dishes


Materials/Tools Used:

  • Two (2) Small Pots
  • Two (2) Small Saucers
  • One (1) Round Bowl
  • Paint / Pens
  • Raffia & Greenery
  • Corks
  • Glue Gun / Glue
  • Candy
  • & Time!


Instructions:

I started by painting one of the pots, and saucers orange to create the pumpkin.  I know that they are already close to that color, but I wanted them to look even more like the squash.

Next, I used some painters tape to block some areas from the scarecrows “overalls”.  I’m not the best at painting, so if you are crafty, you can get really into this with a lot more detail.

After that, I painted the other saucer, which would be the scarecrows hat.

Next, I added some of the raffia to the sides to be the scarecrows “arms”.

I then, glued some smaller pieces to the bottom of the “hat” to be the “hair” for the scarecrow.  You can trim these, once you are done to however long you wish.

 Once the “pumpkin” was dry, I added some greenery and a cork to be the stem (which made it easier to open).candy

After that, I cut another cork in half using my husband’s saw.  I didn’t want the one on top of the scarecrow to be as big, so figured by cutting it, it would work better.

I then glued that one to the top of the scarecrow’s hat.

Next, I used some markers to create the scarecrow’s face.  Like I said, if you’ve got the talent for drawing, go crazy with this.  I figured that he was lucky to get some eyes, with how “good” I am with a pen. :/

Next, I filled up the “pumpkin” with some candy, to have on our counter for when guests come over.

Next, I hot glued the scarecrow’s “head” to his “body” using my glue gun.  I had to make sure of where I put the glue, so that it would adhere correctly.

After that, I filled my scarecrow up (I just used marshmallows to help with the photo, but added some candy after), and put them together on our counter for guests…and us, to enjoy!!

Oh isn’t he cute?! I’ve seen the candy dispenser version using the pots and the glass globe, but never anything as unique as this one. It’s been another fun weekend co-hosting the #HomeMattersParty

How cute, I love them both. This is a fun and great idea for a craft. The marshmallows would go over well with my daughter, they would be gone in one day!
