Supplies:

  1. Clear plastic plates
  2. Candy
  3. Tape
  4. Plastic table covers
  5. Craft foam
  6. Ribbons
  7. Fall floral pick
  8. Hot glue
  9. Optional: purple glitter

Instructions:

Begin by placing candy on top of one clear plate. The clear plastic plates are a little thicker than paper plates, making them a little more sturdy. However, paper plates could be used too.

Candy taped inside 2 clear plates

Next, tape the edges of the plates together, securing the candy inside of the plates. The reason why I didn’t hot glue the plates together is because I wanted the candy to be easy to get to. The tape comes off the plates very easily!

Halloween candy plate witch

Cover the witch candy plate with a green table cover. Secure the cover in place with a large purple bow. Cut off the excess plastic table cover.

Create a hat using craft foam. I embellished my hat with a green ribbon and yellow foam square. Have fun with how you decorate your witch Halloween candy plate! Finally, I put a dot of hot glue covered with purple glitter on it to make a silly purple wart (like I also did here on my Tea Light Witch).

Halloween candy plate pumpkin

To make a pumpkin, cover the candy plates with an orange table cover. Secure the table cover in place with fall colored ribbon. Cut the excess plastic table cover off. Place some leaves from a floral pick into the pumpkin’s stems.

Create the pumpkin’s face using craft foam. You can make a scary face or a happy face. No two pumpkins are alike!
