Push Pop Pumpkin {with Candy Corn Snack Mix}

I’m so excited to be taking part in a Halloween Blog Hop today with some amazing bloggers {bloggers that I’ve adored forever}!  I kind of feel like I snuck in with the cool crowd and I hope my invitation wasn’t a mistake {wink}.  I’m sharing this simple Halloween treat: a push pop pumpkin just perfect for a Halloween party.  And it’s so simple to make!

I started with a black faux pumpkin {you can find them at most craft stores this time of year … and if you can’t find a black one, you could always paint a white or orange one}.

I used my Silhouette to add white vinyl letters to the front of the pumpkin and then I set the pumpkin aside while I prepared the push pops.

I mixed up a few fun, seasonal ingredients with some other year-round staples for a delicious, sweet and salty candy corn snack mix.  {The snack mix got two thumbs up from my kiddos … success, right?}

I filled push pop containers with the snack mix and wrapped them in orange and black patterned washi tape …

… then used an electric drill to drill holes in the pumpkin and stuck the push pops into the holes.

    Good morning! Wondering where you found the push up pop containers.

    Where would I find the push pop containers? I live in the Philadelphia PA area.

      Wilton is selling them now so you can find them at most places that carry the Wilton line {Michaels, Hobby Lobby, even some grocery stores}. Otherwise, you can always find them online at party supply stores.

  3. Absolutely love how classy this looks too! So clever to serve the pops like that! ♥

  4. This is absolutely adorable, Randi. Great idea!

  5. I LOVE this idea, it is such a clever way to display the push up pop containers. And I really love the idea of putting something other than candy or messy desserts in them, great idea!

  6. I’m so making this mix! And I have a ton of faux pumpkins in various stages of crafting. {grin} One might just have to make an appearance on my table for Halloween! Such a clever idea! {And by the way, no mistake! I adore you!}

  7. Such a great idea! So fun hoping with you!

  8. Super clever idea Randi!
