How to Make a Cute Ghost Candy Dish

While planning for our Halloween shindig, I realized I did not have any dishes for serving candy corn (my favorite!) and various other small treats.

The inspiration for this cute ghost candy dish came from the Dessert Stands I made last month with glass plates and candle holders. This time, instead of plates, I used cup candle holders. So here we have another cheap, easy, and quick project that can be completed in a day. Let me show you how to make a cute ghost candy dish that would be equally cute as a snowman!

  • Glass candle holders – one for taper candles and one for other candles
  • Adhesive for glass (such as Stik ‘n Seal)
  • Spray paint
  • Craft paint and brushes
  • Ribbon

I like to have a border at the top of the “dish” so I taped off the top part of the larger candle holder. I spray painted it with white satin spray paint.

I drew the eyes and mouth on the larger candle holder for the ghost, then filled them in with black paint. Once the black paint was dry, I added detail to the eyes with white and a little more black.

I applied a bead of adhesive to the taper candle holder and positioned it on the bottom of the larger candle holder. Then I added a small bow with my “Trick or Treat” ribbon…

Various bowls can be used in place of the larger candle holders. They can be used for salsa, guacamole, or other dips. A few painted like snowmen or Santa would be great for the holidays! Have any questions or other ideas on how to make a cute ghost candy dish? Leave a comment below!
