I was recently browsing Pottery Barn’s Halloween items, and I came across their Skeleton Candy Bowl—a hauntingly chic centerpiece perfect for the season.
But what was not so perfect? The price tag!
At a whopping $199, this bowl is definitely scary!
So, I decided to get creative and mimic the look on my own, using mostly dollar store supplies. Get ready to add a touch of handmade charm to your Halloween festivities without breaking the bank.

Watch this quick video to see how this craft came together:
- Plastic skeleton
- Shallow plastic bowl, I used a "garden dish" from Dollar Tree
- E6000 glue
- Painters tape or masking tape
- Silver spray paint
- OPTIONAL: decorative rocks and tea light candles to fill the bowl
- Watch the video tutorial before you begin, and let that be your visual guide for this project.
- Cut the hanger off the top of the plastic skeleton.
- Set the plastic skeleton under the bowl, and arrange the hands and feet to your liking.
- Glue the tops of the skeleton legs to the bottom of the bowl, and then glue the hands to the sides of the bowl. Add a bit of tape to hold the hands in place while the glue dries.
- When the glue has dried, remove the tape. Then, in a well-ventilated area, spray paint the whole project silver. Let the paint dry,
- Fill the bowl with rocks and tea light candles, if you like.
