Mummy Candy Bowl - finished bowlThis is an inexpensive and very practical Halloween mummy candy bowl.

I bought this reusable cake container and lid for $1 at the Dollar Tree. Flip the container over and you have yourself a bowl! After Halloween is over, you can use this "candy bowl" as what it is designed for - a reusable cake container and lid.


This project will cost less than $2 with supplies; you may even already have at home.

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • white crepe paper streamer
  • hot glue gun
  • cake container
  • tissue paper
  • tape
  • wiggle eyes
