If you have a brandy snifter or two, an ivy bowl, or any similar shaped glass with a round body, then you can easily make these little pumpkin decorations to hand out snacks for Halloween.
» brandy snifter, ivy bowl, or similar shaped vase or glass container
» round plastic eyes
» orange-colored food snacks (such as cheesies, candy corn or wrapped Halloween candies)
» black marker (hint: white board markers are easy to remove, as are ordinary black markers; permanent markers will be harder or perhaps impossible to remove)
» white or household glue (only needed if your plastic eyes aren’t self-adhesive)
This is one of the easiest pumpkin crafts you’ll ever do. First, wash and polish the brandy snifter, ivy bowl or glass vase.
Fill with your choice of orange-colored snacks, candy or treats.
If your plastic wiggly eyes are self-adhesive, stick them to the glass, about an inch apart and on a level with each other.
If the plastic eyes are not self-adhesive, apply white glue or household glue to the back of each eye, then set the eyes in place on the glass and let dry.
Draw a happy face, Halloween smiley, or another mouth shape in black marker, directly beneath the eyes. If you make a mistake and work quickly, you should be able to easily erase your work and try again.
Once you have a Jack o’Lantern face that looks pleasing, set the bowl where desired in your Halloween decor. Sets of three or more, with each glass or snifter filled with a different snack, can be set out together to great effect.
Have a Happy Halloween!
