Fall Candy Displays

So, last week I decided to go on a little Dollar Tree inspiration adventure.  I love walking around the store to see just what interesting ideas pop into mind.

Well I found these items:
These are two sugar pourers and two wide ceramic candlesticks  (let's count 'em... yes, just $4.00). And the cool thing... those pourers fit perfectly inside the lip of the candlesticks.  

After a little spray paint (the outside of the lids and the candlesticks just to make them the same glossy black).
And gluing on little wooden knobs.
And adding some ribbon and some labels....

We got this:


The only glue involved was to put the wooden candle-cups to the lids (just hot glue).  Since the sticks and pourers fit perfectly, I didn't have to glue them on.  So, I can now use the candlesticks in the future for other uses, too!

The stickers were made by printing out labels from here (had to do it reversed since they are ready for iron-ons).  I also reduced it to 80%.  Then I ran the paper through the Xyron machine to give myself stickers. 


Put it all together and show off your candy corn and fall M&Ms in spooky, but cute style.


There are many Halloween spooky "treat" printables out there.  Go to Pinterest and search!  I liked the old-time Pharmacy label look of the treats design.  Rather than search more, I just used the Boo! sticker too.
