Halloween Candy Display Ideas To Delight

Easy, Creative and Frightfully Fun

 

Halloween is always a frightfully good holiday. I love to decorate and make things extra fun for anyone who stops by, especially the cutest little trick-or-treaters. One way I do this is by displaying my Halloween candies. Why just have candy tossed in a bowl, when you can make it festive? Check out these easy and creative ideas…

Bubbling Cauldron of Candy

 


Make your cauldron bubble using a package of Stretchable Spider Webs. I used a large cauldron and edged it with the webbing, pulling and fluffing it out, then place a bowl in the top of the cauldron that was large enough to sit at the top. I fluffed the spider webbing over the edge of that bowl and filled with candy. The spider web is lightweight and flutters in the breeze for a really cool effect.

 

Hanging Cauldron

 


This idea takes a smaller cauldron, a hanging plant stand, plant chain, and hook. We drilled holes below the lip of the cauldron to put the chain through and attached it to the hook. Then, the cauldron just hangs from the stand. Fill it with Halloween Candy.

 

Jack-O’-Lantern and Black Cat Display

 


These adorable Halloween Candy Buffet Buckets come in a set of three sizes — perfect for separating treats. I used one for candy, one for glow bracelets and Halloween card, and one for mini flashlights and holiday pencils. Placed on a table with a black plastic tablecloth and Halloween Silhouette Table Skirt, pumpkins and one of my Silhouette Cat Yard Stakes.

 

It’s not hard or expensive to make Halloween frightfully fun with these spooktacular Halloween Candy Display Ideas. They are great for parties too — Enjoy!

How-To Create A Christmas Topiary

How-To Create A Christmas Topiary

A Holiday DIY Project from Regular Contributor, Michelle James

 

Well, we are smack in the middle of the holiday season. I am slowly getting my decorating done, and will probably finish on Christmas Eve. I have wanted an outdoor Christmas topiary for a while now; so, this year I finally decided to make one.

 

How-to Create A Christmas Topiary

We had almost all of the supplies on hand for this project. The only thing I purchased was the large ornament from a home improvement store on sale for $7.99 and the set of 35 lights.

Supplies needed:

  • Outdoor Pot – I used one I already had that wasn’t full of dirt.
  • Saucer – This is a plastic saucer for pots and it happened to fit into the pot so it worked out perfectly. It was white so it got a coat of paint to help match it up with the pot a little better.
  • Dowel – (or something similar) We had some PVC pipe left over from a lighting project and it was perfect.
  • Filler – This is to fill the pot. In Iowa it gets pretty windy so some rocks went in as well. We also have a ton of foam insulation so that is what we used.
  • Large Ornament
  • Small ornaments
  • Indoor/Outdoor Christmas Lights – I used a 35 pk.

 

 

 

I have to give credit where credit is due. Since my husband got his hours cut at work, he has been helping me A LOT with my projects. He actually got the first part of this done for me. He is a great guy and deserves the credit.

He removed the gold hanging element off the top of the large ornament so there would be a hole for the dowel/PVC pipe. I actually turned the ornament upside down so it would look like a tree.

He drilled a hole in the middle of the saucer and spray painted it brown to match the pot.

He used some rocks and some filler inside the pot around the dowel/PVC to help it stay upright along with the help of the saucer. Then placed the ornament onto the PVC.

 

 

It fit nicely. This is the saucer before he had it painted but I thought it was a genius idea. The lights and the ornaments had a nice place to sit now.

 

 

I placed the lights down first into the saucer and then placed the red ball ornaments on top of the lights around the large “tree”.

 

 

Then, all I had to do was plug it in. Doesn’t it look nice? And, it was super easy.

 

 

 

I added some LED lights (not a huge fan of the bright white) around a metal “trellis” instead of a tomato cage for a second tree. Bright white aside…

I just love it! What type of décor do you use outside during the holidays?

I hope you will come back to see my “warm and cozy” throw blankets on December 29th.

Enjoy your holiday!

Halloween Night 2014

 

Happy Halloween!

Hope you all had a wonderful fun-filled Halloween Night 2014.

Halloween Night 2014 was one of the best Halloweens ever! We had such an awesome time last night with our trick-or-treaters. The jack-o’-lanterns were a huge success. Neighbors were telling neighbors and sending them over to see it all. Our yard was the ultimate photo spot for the evening.

Here’s what the house looked like…


My neighbor gave me this gorgeous antique Victorian loveseat and two matching chairs this past Monday. It was perfect for relaxing in the courtyard and greeting our Halloween guests, and it really set the tone for our Halloween Night 2014. Luke drilled holes in my little black cauldron, so I could use my hanging plant stand for our candy.

 


We had tons of fun decorating for Halloween… here’s what the front of the house looked like.

 

Luke made special shelves for displaying my pumpkins. They attached to the wrought iron of the brick wall, and are completely reusable for next year!

 

We recycled these concrete bench legs from our DIY Courtyard Project as Pumpkin Pedestals. They really added a Gothic feel.

 

The pumpkin shelves were nearly invisible. It was such a cool look.

 

Everyone wanted to get up close and personal with the jack-o’-lanterns. To complete the mood for the evening, we had a collection of 23 versions of Grim Grinning Ghosts playing in the background. The music almost made the Singing Graveyard Busts come to life. All in all, it was a super fun Halloween Night 2014!

 

And the remainder of the pumpkins I carved for Halloween…

You can check out the first two pumpkins of the season, Singing Graveyard Busts and Drac-n-Bat’s ’32 here.
