Creature Candy Dishes

These bewitching characters are not as innocent as they seem. If you're not careful, they'll eat all the candy themselves.

  • Scissors

  • Bumpy-black pipe cleaners

  • Glue

  • Candy


  1. Print images and cut out pieces, trimming along edge of bird or cat and fence, if desired.

  2. To make bodies, cut a foot-long piece of bumpy black or orange pipe cleaner in half. Bend one piece in half to make legs; twist at top to form a tiny loop.

  3. Stick other pipe-cleaner piece through loop for arms; twist arms around loop three times so they are shorter than legs. Glue heads to top of loop.

  4. For candy dish, fold fence pieces (a three-sided section and a taller back section) along dotted lines; form into a box, and glue fence tabs to stabilize. Add candies, and pose sentries.
