Greet trick-or-treaters or party guests with this door decoration. You can turn a foam pumpkin into the perfect candy holder for the season. Hang it anywhere where someone might grab a piece of candy!
Using a serrated knife, cut a foam pumpkin in half lengthwise from the stem to the bottom of the pumpkin, cutting behind the stem. You’ll use the half that has the stem still attached. Using a thin black marker, draw a face with eyes and a large mouth. Carve out the face using the serrated knife.
Attach the carved pumpkin to a framed chalkboard using foamboard adhesive. When the glue is dry flip the chalkboard over and secure the pumpkin using 6 screws.
Write your message on the chalkboard using a chalkboard marker or chalk. Add your choice of Hershey Halloween candy. Make it glow with battery-operated string lights, hiding the battery box inside underneath the candy.
Keeping in mind the weight of the pumpkin, frame and candy, use a sawtooth frame hanger, a hook or velcro strips to hang your pumpkin from a door.
