Trick or Treat bowls

I found these wooden bowls at Target on a clearance aisle and they were green and orange so I didn’t even have to paint them and they were priced at just over a dollar apiece. All I had to do is stencil them and add candy and rubber spiders.


  • alphabet stencil or trick or treat stencil which I found at Hobby Lobby.
  • two wooden bowls
  • black paint and stencil brush
  • rubber bugs or spider and candy for treat dish

Step 1.

Tape your stencil onto the bowl and using a stencil brush dab the paint on the bowl. Be sure to dab off most of the paint from your brush before you start stenciling or it will smear. Repeat this step with the other bowl putting “trick” on one bowl and “treat” on the other.

Add candy to treat bowl and bugs, spiders, or mice to the other.

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
