Halloween centerpieces with Hershey's candy bars

To make this Halloween centerpiece you will need:

  • Regular size Hershey's candy bars
  • Themed candies in black wrappers
  • 1/2" black and orange satin ribbon
  • A container, for example, an empty can of olives
  • Orange tissue paper
  • Halloween tags (free printables)
  • Wooden skewers
  • Floral foam
  • Brown floral tape
  • A low temperature glue gun
  • A clear packing tape
  • A glue stick

Step 1. Decorate the container for your bouquet.

Don’t throw away empty tin cans; they are great for various craft projects. Use a clean empty can. I used a can of olives (2 1/2" diameter and 4 1/2” high) in this project.

Use an empty tin can as a container

Wrap the can with orange tissue paper, securing it with a glue stick. Secure paper to the bottom of the can with clear packing tape.

Step 2. Make Hershey’s candy flowers.

Use Hershey’s chocolate bars (I used 6 in this craft project).

Halloween crafts with sweets

Cut a piece of orange tissue paper. Place a chocolate bar in the middle of this piece face down. Attach a piece of double-sided adhesive tape to the back of the bar and secure the tissue paper onto it. Glue the ends of the paper together with a glue stick.

Using a low-temperature glue gun, attach this stick to the back of the chocolate piece. For additional security, place a piece of clear packing tape over it.

Step 3. Make black candy flowers.

Prepare sweets in black wrappers.

If you can’t find them:

  • buy black Twizzlers and thread them onto wooden skewers;
  • or buy any hard candies (butterscotch, cinnamon discs, jolly ranchers, etc.) and wrap them in black tissue paper, securing the wrapper’s tails with black thread or black curling ribbon.
