Pumpkins are the best fall decoration, aren’t they? They can represent Autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, which makes this Pumpkin Candy Dish the perfect decor piece!

Since I really don’t like to spend time making projects that have no actual use, I had to add the functional element to to it: candy dish. Or ya know, whatever else you might need to put away, like keys, money…etc.

This pattern is part of the Spooky Halloween Crochet Along! Get the details HERE.

Just like the Crystal Ball Candy Dish and Witch Head Candy Dish I wanted there to be a hidden feature, but it was a little obvious with this Pumpkin that the top comes off, so maybe it’s not so sneaky. However, it is still soooo cute! Plus, you can leave the face off or add a spooky one instead! I love leaving my patterns with mostly blank canvases for others to get creative with!
