Friday Flashback: Candy Corn Edition

I love decorating with stuff that can be used for multiple seasons and holidays. I love that instead of sitting in the attic for 11 months out of the year, that I can change some of my decor up and use it year round. So when I started working on new decorations for Halloween/fall I knew I could figure out a way to makes something that would work for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and maybe even Easter.

I started with some clear glass bottles that I have been saving for three years. I knew at some point I would find a good use for them:)
 I used my Cricut and cut out some vinyl letters.
 I used some transfer paper to attach the letters to the clear glass bottles.
 I lined the bottles up to make sure that the letters were even...the "d" is a little high, but not enough to worry about.
 I spray painted the lids white so they would match almost any holiday decor.
 Then I filled the bottles up with CANDY CORN...
 ...and lined them up on my kitchen counter.

This was a SUPER inexpensive project...all I really bought was the candy corn. Now when fall is over and Christmas decorations start going up, all I will have to do is empty out the candy corn and add in some red, green, and white M &M's!

**This is a post from last year that has been one of my most popular through the year. I actually have the same jars sitting on my counter right now...they just aren't filled with candy!**


  1. Those are really cute. What kind of bottles did you use?

  2. I love this and remember it from last year. HOpe you all have a great weekend!

  3. That is so cute! I am not that crafty but this looks pretty simple minus the cricut.

  4. Yum!

    BTW, love your tile countertop. Very modern.

  5. Cute idea! Your boys must look forward to seeing what candy you'll use for each holiday and to getting to eat it.

  6. SUPER, SUPER, cute! Like you said, you can use them for so many holidays!!

  7. I really love this idea! I have a photo frame with our monogram in vinyl on the front and change out the scrap paper in it to go with the holidays. I love simple things like that.

  8. I love these bottles. I had saved some lemonade bottles from our graduation party and I ended up throwing them out..dang..but I might use Starbuck bottles to start.. Love this. Thanks for the idea.

  9. LOVE this.
