DIY Halloween Candy Displays Using Pumpkin Peeps!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012C Riches

My favorite part of Fall is to take the children to  Schnepf Farms! It is a whole day event that includes pumpkin patch, hay rides, pig races, petting Zoo, corn maze, yummy food, bonfire, marshmallows roasting and fireworks - So fun!!

Since we love pumpkin patch so much, I created our own Halloween Peeps Pumpkin Patches! Super easy and fun to make! Enjoy!

Materials Needed for both displays:

* Pumpkin Peeps and green licorice
* Empty tin cans or cereal box (I used the Wheat Thins box)
* Round and rectangular Styrofoam blocks or floral foam blocks
* Printable Halloween Favor Tags
* Straws or lollipop sticks
* Glue Gun
* Twine or ribbons
* Toothpicks
* Picked fence (I bough mine at Hobby Lobby)
Patterned Scrapbook Papers to cover the Styrofoam and box 
* Extra orange sprinkles(optional)

To assemble the pumpkins:

I used extra orange sprinkles to cover the sides and bottom of the pumpkins. Cut a small piece of green licorice, add to the top of your pumpkin (for the stem) and insert a toothpick to the bottom of the pumpkin.

If you follow me over at Crissy's Crafts, you know by now that I am all about easy, inexpensive crafts and favors. To turn your store bought Peeps into spooktacular treats, presentation is the key! So I have two ways in which you can display these cute pumpkins:

1) Pumpkin Patch with Mini Bunting:

Cover the Styrofoam with crepe paper, add your bunting, pumpkins and fence. If you don't have a fence, you can easily make one using white card stock or even flat Popsicle sticks. Complete the look by adding some cute ribbon around the Styrofoam  There! Your own Pumpkin Patch - Great as table centerpiece or Halloween desserts table candy display!! :)

2) Pumpkin Patch made from a Cereal Box:

Once all your pumpkins are assembled, insert them to into the Styrofoam  Decorate your "patch" with labels, twine/ribbons and "grass" (paper fringe) - Great as a Halloween candy display but also as a fun party favor or teacher's gift, not to mention it will be a huge hit with your little monsters!!
