How to Make a Jack-O-Lantern Candy Holder

October 18, 2016

Description:

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought it’d be fun to make a pumpkin candy dish. The dish can hold well over 300+ pieces of candy in the 12″x12″ pumpkin. I started out this project by cutting up a sheet of 2’x4′ plywood that was 3/4″ thick into 6 pieces. I cut 3 pieces at 12″x12″, 2 pieces at 12″x10.5″ and 1 piece at 10.5″x10.5″. Once all my sheets of plywood were cut out, I went ahead and pasted my jack-o-lantern template onto one of my 12″x12″ sheets of plywood and cut out the face with my jigsaw. I went ahead and assembled the box using some brad nails and wood glue for extra strength. After the box was completely assembled, I sanded and painted the box solid orange. I went ahead and cut out a 1.5″x1.5″ piece of wood that was about 3.5″ long for a stem and painted that green. Once all the pieces were dry, I lined the inside of the box with black foam and hot glued it into place. From here I poured all the candy inside and it’s all set for Halloween!
