Spooky Monster Hand Candy Bowl

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays.  What’s not to love about putting on silly costumes and having fun getting scared?  When I pass out candy at Halloween, I like to give a little trick with the treat.  This spooky hand popping out of a candy bowl would be a fun way to send a shiver down someone’s spine!


For the faux pewter bowl:

1.  Spray paint the bowl silver.

2.  Brush on black acrylic paint in small sections.

3.  Wipe paint off with a dry cloth by gently rubbing in a circular motion.

4.  Glue the spiders and other critters on.

For the spooky monster hand:

1.  Spray paint the paper mache hand green.

2.  Paint on Mod Podge shimmer to give it some depth and a slimy glow.

3.  Glue the fake nails on.

4.  Glue the base of the hand into the bowl.

All that’s left to do is fill the bowl with treats and watch your friend’s reactions!

Happy Haunting!
