I wanted pretty wooden pumpkins for my Halloween display in the front yard and also needed a cool way to store and serve the candy to the trick or treaters. Plastic bowls are so boring. These pretty Halloween Pumpkins with Treat Storage are the perfect solution.
How to Make Pretty Pumpkins with Treat Storage
The directions for how to make these pretty pumpkins is over on Ryobi Nation. While you’re over there, be sure to check out all of their awesome tools ’cause I have a surprise* for you at the end of this post.
Every year I would sit outside with my plastic bowl of candy. I know that the kids don’t care if the treats are in a plastic bowl or a pretty pumpkin but I do! ; )
And why not make these pretty pumpkins since they serve (see what I did there) a dual purpose. They look pretty and hold the treats! And they are super easy to make.
If you’re like me, you probably already have the wood to make these. The pumpkins are made with scrap pieces of thin plywood, and put together with some wood glue and brad nails. Paint or stain them any way you’d like.
Tip: use a spray temporary adhesive to stick the pattern to the wood – it can be removed after cutting.
Here’s the surprise!*
