Now that it's officially September, Oct. 31 is creeping around the corner and we're looking for Halloween candy bowl ideas (preferably for under $10) to delight trick-or-treaters. While the fun-sized chocolate bars are obviously the big lure for any costumed kid, it's nice to add a little something extra when you're giving out goodies. So if you're repurposing an old, boring bowl this year or just want to pick up something big from the thrift store, there are still ways to get creative. Here are a few spooky items you can add to your candy bowl on the cheap.
Speaking of zombies, you could also have one of these popping out from the middle, trying to escape from a sugary grave.
Get a pack of undead friends to hang off the edge of the bowl!

The perfect centerpiece if you're expecting little zombies to ring your door.
Stocking up on faux spiderwebs is always a smart idea, the Halloween decoration staple can be used throughout the whole house.
Of course if you're going to go the route of webs, you definitely need an arachnid for extra emphasis.
These will stick to glass surfaces, and are good if you're leaving a candy bowl outside and want to keep an eye (or several) on trick-or-treaters.
Or, try this: if you have a bowl on the smaller side and a whole lot of patience, then you can cover it bottom to top with a bunch of googlies!
These are technically good for the garden, but we're sure you could take a stab in a particularly loaded bowl of candy corn.
A solid alternative to webs if you feel like mummifying your bowl instead.
Or maybe it's a raven, but this guy definitely should be perching with your treats this year.
Or, you could have a black bird setting shop on top of a skull (with the help of a little hot glue). Forgoing that, we're sure Mr. Bones could stand center stage on his own...no other appendages required.
