jack o lantern bowl

Share a sweet treat with anyone who stops by your desk or front door with a fun and simple Halloween craft. You just need a few simple dollar store materials, and this jack-o-lantern container can be made in just minutes. A custom bowl makes it easy to give a great Halloween favor to teachers, friends, or co-workers. Fill the bowl with your favorite orange goodie. Instead of candy, I filled the bowl with orange EOS lip balm spheres because I thought they would make a cool non-sugary treat for my adult trick-or-treaters.

Project Materials:

  • Glass bowl-shaped vase, on hand or $1
  • Black self-stick craft foam, on hand or $1
  • Scissors
  • Orange vase filler: Candy or orange EOS spheres, about $3.38 each at Amazon.com: EOS Tangerine Medicated Lip Balm Sphere

Total: $2 and up

Supplies: You can find EOS spheres at your local big box or drug stores, or at Amazon.com.

Disclosure: I received this lip balm from the Eos company in order to make crafts with. They hired me to create crafts for them (for their own use), but I was not paid for this post. The links in the article are Amazon affiliate links.
