Jack O' Lantern Candy Dish

I found this wonderful little glass dish at my local thrift store for .50. With some candy, ribbon, and paint, it was a fun project!!


Total Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: 1

Source: seen on line



  1. If this is for decoration only, hot glue the filler to the inside of the jar. If it's actually for candy, you can eliminate this part and "do not put the little pumpkin on top". It will not hold when you use it as a handle.
  2. I was not very good at painting the teeth, eyes, and nose of the jack o' lantern, but if you are, even better. It took about 3 coats. The spots you see that look like it's missing paint are just reflections from the lights.
  3. Whatever ribbon you use, glue it around on itself and then on the top, too.
  4. I painted the little foam pumpkin and hot glued it on. But if this is an actual jar for candy, don't do this step. It won't stay on. If you use it, leave the bottom stick on so you can hold it while painting. N-JOY!!

This is a great project. :) I may just cut out the face with cardstock, so I could use the jar later on.
