Halloween Place Settings
These candy corn and bat place settings easy to make – you just need a little time for the paint to dry – but other than that, they can be made very quickly!
To make these candy corn and bat Halloween place settings you will need:
- mini terracotta pots, approx 2″ high. Of course you will need the same amount of mini pots as you have guests. They can double up as little Halloween party favors too!
- Black ceramic paint
- Foam sponge brush
- Orange ribbon – the one I used was glittery – use whatever ribbon you like.
- Double sided tape
- Black card – for the bats
- Silver or white gel pen
- Candy Corn

How to make these Halloween Place Settings
Step 1: Paint each of the mini pots with ceramic paint. You may need two coats. Leave to dry.
Step 2: When paint is dried completely, measure out ribbon to fit around the rim of pot, and use double sided tape to attach. Use my photos as a guide.
Step 3: The hardest (if you can even call it that!) is done. Now it’s time to fill the pots with candy corn. I only had a small amount of candy corn, and didn’t have quite enough to fill all the pots, so I stuffed them with some orange tissue paper to bulk them out. You can just fill with candy corn.
Step 4: Use this bat outline template (opens in new window/tab) to trace around onto black card. Cut bats out, and use silver gel pen draw on eyes, and write on guests’ names.
Step 5: Position bat name cards into the candy corn pots, and your Halloween place cards are complete!
