Hello Happy Hour Projects readers. I am Sarah from Alderberry Hill and I am super thrilled to be posting here today for the lovely Adrianne!

I am a working Mom of 2 terrific kiddos and a wife to the best guy a girl can find!

Spare time to craft comes few & far between in this household but I make the most of every moment I can gather!

Today I am sharing with you a Halloween Candy Dish.


Now here’s the dish on how I created it!

I started with a little Christmas ceramic dish that was the perfect lime green for Halloween.

I covered up the Christmas scene with scrapbooking paper and added some ribbon & bunting stickers.


The “Deadly Morsels” sign was a sticker as well, I simply placed it on black cardstock and then backed it with white cardstock, clipped the edges with a corner punch and used double stick tape to adhere it to the dish.

I accordion folded more ribbon, which was wire edged, to give it a ruffled look, and then hot glued it to the base of the dish.

I thought it would be cute to make witches legs to stick out from underneath the dish as if the dish squat the witch. I threaded several buttons onto twine until I got the desired length. Tie off the twine to secure the buttons leaving a 2 inch tail of twine and then hot glue the twine to the bottom of the dish. Repeat for the 2nd leg.


I drew a witches shoe on black card stock, you’ll need 4, and then glued 2 shoes, matching sides together, to the little bit of twine on the bottom of the button leg.

I added a little bit of halloween tule in the bottom of the dish and then filled with candy!


So cute!

    Oh Sarah, now this is Cotton Pickin Cute! You have added so many cute features to it and that green was just perfect for a Halloween themed dish. It would have taken me forever to come up with that.
