The candy tray is an integral part of the Halloween snack buffet. To decorate it in a spectacular way, you usually have the choice between two themes: spooky accessories that chill the blood or decorative pumpkins painted in festive colors. The traditional combination of orange-black-white colors is a sure bet for a successful Halloween decor, shades like green, red and purple are not to be missed either.

In fact, they are very easy to create with jelly candies, food coloring or natural ingredients (wasabi, melted chocolate, tomato sauce). In short, the ideas for transforming a simple tray into a monstrous one are many.

Make cobwebs from yarn and popsicle sticks, cut out cardboard bats, or paint small pumpkins in black and white. You can also invest in decorative mice and skeleton hands.
