Crochet Pumpkin Treat Bowl Pattern

This little pumpkin might not hold enough to keep the Trick-Or-Treaters happy next week, but it is the perfect size for a secret candy stash in the house. I was inspired by a pumpkin bowl made of wicker that I've had forever and dutifully put on display every year. This one is a lot cuter (and softer!) than the original and looks perfect on my shelf. The chocolate treats inside don't hurt either. Since pumpkin decorations are acceptable through Thanksgiving that means my secret candy stash can stay filled for a few weeks after Halloween.

About 3 in / 7.6 cm tall and 4.5 in / 11.4 cm wide

Weave in all ends. 

Sew the stem to the center of the lid. Sew the leaf to the side of the stem. Now all you have to do is fill it with treats...or tricks. Your call.

I think this pumpkin would also make a great container for a small, just-beacause-I-know-you-love-fall, gift! I love "just because" gifts and decorations. There is nothing better than making something that brings out a smile and holds yummy candy all at once. ;)
