DIY Spiderweb Treat Bowl for Halloween

Halloween is creeping up quickly, and what better way to prepare than by creating a candy bowl for trick-or-treaters! This year we thought it would fun to make a Spiderweb Treat Bowl to fill with our favorite Hershey candy varieties.

We love giving out our favorite Hershey variety candies, including Reese's, Milk Duds and "spider" Jolly Rancher suckers. With as many as 220 candies in each bag, they're sure to last a while on Halloween night! And of course you can't beat Walmart's price! Find Hershey pumpkin, green monster, ghost varieties and more at the front store entrance display and in the holiday section near cosmetics.

2) Draw the webs: I found it easier to draw the webs on the inside of the bowl with a dry erase marker before applying the glow-in-the-dark craft paint to the outside of the bowl. I also used a measuring tape to figure out the spacing between the point of each web. Depending on the height of your bowl, you'll want one or two rows of spiderwebs. For this bowl we did four webs opening from the top of the bowl down and four more from the bottom up.

3) After the webs are complete leave the bowl to cure for 4 days. Then, if desired, bake the bowl on a tray for 20 minutes at 325 to make it dishwasher/hand-wash safe. 4) Fill bowl with Halloween candy; we purchased Hershey Trunk or Treat Variety Pack and Hershey Green Monster Variety Pack, and used less than half of each bag to fill it to the brim!

Trick-or-treaters won't find any tricks here! Head to Walmart to purchase your favorite large Hershey candy bags in time for Halloween!

Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween!!
