Upcycle: DIY Candy Bowls

DIY Candy Bowls Upcycle: DIY Candy Bowls
Halloween is coming and I don’t know about your house, but in mine that means one thing. CANDY. While I try to limit the amount of candy my kids consume, Halloween is one of the few days of the year that I let them go a little crazy. We attend and host annual Halloween parties and the lure (and presence) of candy is too strong to resist. This year we are presenting our candy at our party in these fun, DIY candy bowls. Perfect for cookie decorating parties, decoration or just plain eating, they are easy to make with craft basics, dollar store or thrift store items.

Things you need:
Glass jars or bowls
Brass or wood candlesticks
Craft glue

Things to do:
1. If your candlesticks aren’t already painted, give them a few coats of color to match your party theme and allow them to dry overnight.

2. Center the bowl or jar base onto the top of the candlestick, finding a good, centered spot for it.
3. Apply a generous amount of glue to join the two, wiping away any excess. Press down lightly to make sure the bowl adheres well.
4. Allow the glue to dry completely before filling with candy.
