Skeleton Candy Bowl for Halloween
#TigerStrypesBlog #Halloween #Skeleton #Candy
I saw something like this online recently, and thought it looked like a fun project to make. Most of the items were bought at the local dollar store, so it’s pretty cheap & cheerful to make!! If you’re like me, you already might have half of the stuff in your craft supplies, so it’ll be even less expensive. I can’t believe that it’s already October!
The weather here in the mountains of Arizona is finally cooling down. I know that for the flatlanders, 80 would be a blessing, but for us full-timers, that’s hot! Fall is my favorite season, for sure. Cooler weather, changing leaves and just a different smell when you go outside. I just can’t explain it, but you just know that Fall is here, when you go outside and it smells a certain way. I just love it!! We have our firewood ready for the cooler months, and can’t wait to enjoy the new season.
With that being said, then you know Halloween is just around the corner. We live in a small town, so we don’t get many trick-or-treaters, so I just love to make special gifts for my neighbors, and friends to enjoy the holidays. This one will be a fun way to have candy on the table and bring a smile to your face. I sure hope that you like the tutorial, and pray that you have a blessed day!

Instructions for the Skeleton Candy Bowl:
I started by heading to the local dollar store (well, dollar and a quarter store now) and buying a few of the products from the list above. Some of the tools, I already had at home, so that was a savings. I started by having my husband cut the skeleton with the diagonal pliers at the base of the spine…sorry skeleton. 🙁 I then trimmed the ends of the legs off, to be able to glue those to the bowl.
When that was all complete, I headed inside and got my glue gun plugged in, and heated up. Using a few dots, I attached the top portion to one side of the bowl, holding it for a bit until it dried. Then I attached the hands to the rim of the bowl, to secure them. After that, I attached the legs to the front of the bowl, at the knee area, being sure to attach them securely into place.
Once everything was dry and super secure, I poured some Halloween candy into the bowl. Now our little skeleton is enjoying his chocolate hot tub, getting ready for Halloween. I figured that this would be the perfect gift for some neighbors, since we don’t have many trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. It’s always fun to bring a smile to those you care about. I hope you and your family have a fun and safe Halloween.
What do you think? I hope you like it! Please take a minute to leave me a comment on what you would like to create, and maybe if you have any tips on how to do it different, or better!
