Hi friends!! Rebecca here from Make & Do Studio and I am sooo excited to be back this year to share another SPOOKTACULAR DIY Halloween project with y’all! You may remember my DIY Mummy Pillow from last year…but this year I am all about the candy! I mean…I’m sort of like a kid with my LOVE for candy so I thought it’d be fun to make a modern halloween candy bowl for passing out treats to all of the trick-or-treaters! Ready to get started?
Halloween Candy Bowl
So, if you follow me, you know I love a good DIY. I had this idea in my head and I had planned on building the hex box from scratch but in order to save time and make it more DIY friendly, I found this AMAZING hex box already to go at Target. So with some very basic skills, you too can build this. Here is what you’ll need:
I started off by figuring out the placement of the handles, I placed mine down 1.25″ down from the edge and centered on that section.Next, using a drill bit, I drilled holes for the machine screws.Once all 4 holes were drilled, I attached the handles using the 3/4″ #8 Brass Screws and #8 Hex Nuts to secure the screws on the inside. Once the handles were attached, I removed the hanger from the back so the shadow box will sit flat.Using painter’s tape I created a modern color block design with non-traditional halloween colors hot pink, navy and chartreuse…I still wanted the natural wood to show through. After I finished the color blocking, I used my Cricut to cut a stencil for “TRICK or TREAT” and painted it white. Fill with candy and you are all set for Halloween!
