candy corn halloween bowl cheese cloth

This ghostly candy bowl began as a plastic bowl from the dollar store. The cheese cloth is attached with Mod Podge – it dries fast so you can make this last minute with awesome results!

What you need….
Plaid ® Hot Glue Gun Helpers
Mod Podge ® Gloss, 16 oz.
Foam paintbrush
Large clear plastic bowl
Cheesecloth – 2 yards
Hot glue
Ornament balls
Paper flowers


1. Place the bowl upside down on a tall sturdy object so it is about 5” from your work surface. Coat the outside of the bowl with a thick layer of Mod Podge.

2. Cut the cheesecloth into 5 pieces; place the pieces in the Mod Podge on the bowl. (let the pieces hand over the edge in a ghostly manor) Add more Mod Podge to the cheesecloth until it is completely glued to the bowl. Allow to dry.

3. Using hot glue attach lace, feathers, balls, flowers, etc. to the edge of the bowl. Fill with candy.
