Trick-or-Treat Pumpkin Craft

Overall Rating

Things You'll Need

  • Large Foam Pumpkin, available at a craft store
  • Serrated Knife
  • 1-2 Yards Festive Halloween Themed Fabric
  • Fabric Glue
  • Paint, Glitter, or other embellishments of choice
  • HERSHEY'S Assorted Shapes
  • TWIZZLERS Candy Assortment

How to Make

  • Using a serrated knife, carefully cut off the top half of your foam pumpkin. Measure the depth of the bottom of the pumpkin. Multiply that number by three. This is the approximate diameter of the circle of fabric you will cut to line the pumpkin. (For example, if pumpkin is 6” deep, you will need to cut a circle with a diameter of 18”.)

  • Cut your fabric. Place over the top of your pumpkin bowl. Press fabric to the bottom of the bowl. Slowly glue fabric over the cut-edge of the bowl until you have glued the entire radius of the bowl. You may have to fold fabric occasionally to account for the roundness of the edge. Trim any excess fabric from the edge of your bowl.

  • Decorate the outside of your bowl with acrylic paint. You may wish to paint a circle of spooky ghosts, glue glitter patterns, or embellish with ribbon.

  • When glue is dry, fill bowl with your favorite individually wrapped HERSHEY'S Treats. We suggest HERSHEY'S Miniatures, REESE'S Peanut Butter Pumpkins, KIT Kat Miniatures, HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates, Jolly Rancher Candies, TWIZZLERS Candy and more.
