Halloween Door Hanger


Greet trick-or-treaters or party guests with this door decoration. You can turn a foam pumpkin into the perfect candy holder for the season. Hang it anywhere where someone might grab a piece of candy!

You'll Need

  • Serrated knife
  • Foam craft pumpkin
  • Pencil
  • Utility knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • Black poster board
  • Craft frame
  • Twine or string (to hang the frame on your door!)
  • HERSHEY'S Halloween Candy (your favorite bag) Hershey Halloween Sweets Assortment or Hershey Halloween Glow-in-the-Dark Miniatures Assortment or Hershey Halloween Chocolate Candy & Sweets Assortment or Hershey Halloween Miniatures Assorted Chocolate



Using a serrated knife, cut a foam craft pumpkin in half vertically. Cut behind the “stem,” leaving plenty of room to form your candy dish. You’ll use the half that still has the stem attached.


Draw the outline of your jack-o-lantern face in pencil. You’ll use the outline to carve the face into the pumpkin.


Use a utility knife to cut out the face of your jack-o-lantern. Make sure the mouth is big enough to hold all your candy!


Using the hot glue gun, secure the carved pumpkin to the poster board. Then, glue the poster board to the craft frame.


Hot glue twine to the back of the frame to create a hanger for your pumpkin. Write a Halloween message on the poster if you’d like.


Fill the dish with candy and hang it from your door or wall.
