Guys. I have been hunting down Halloween candy like nobody’s business. I’ve been hunting down Halloween candy the way I hunt down an elastic waistband on Thanksgiving day. Usually, I complain that stores put out their holiday displays waaaay to early, but this year I’m ready for it. Gimme all the Reese’s peanut butter cups. Gimme all the Kit Kats. Give them to me so I can give them a home in this super easy to make candy holder.
The project is inspired by THIS rustic pumpkin stand that we’ll be making at this week’s Home Depot Do-It-Herself workshop. Considering I’m not much of a “rustic” type of crafter, I opted to take a slightly different approach. Turns out, this project is schuper duper easy to make and perfect for copious amounts of Halloween candy that you’ll give to your friends. Yeah. To your friends. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
Take a peek at the basic plans for building this project!
I decided to recreate the look of a spooky halloween fence for my candy holder. I gave it a fresh coat of bright white paint and added a glittery scaredy cat, cut from thick chipboard with my Cricut Explore. Last up – a simple banner made with my beloved We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board.
If you want to create this project, head over the Home Depot and grab the supplies. You can also register for the upcoming DIH workshop to learn how to create the rustic pumpkin version of this project.
I’ll be co-hosting the DIH workshop in Ft. Worth, TX this week so if you’re in the area, I would LOVE to see your face!
Today’s project is brought to you in partnership with The Home Depot. I received payment, product or both in exchange for this content. All projects, ideas, opinions and wackadoo stories are all my very own. Thanks for supporting the partnerships that keep the lights on in this joint.
