This DIY Halloween candy holder is seriously SO cool- it lights up! I’m excited to share all the details with you!
Last week I announced that I had partnered with The Home Depot on their DIH Workshop for a DIY Halloween candy holder, and today I get to show the finished product! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you’ve been able to see a few little sneak peaks here or there. Here is the Home Depot’s version…
And here is my version…
And the best part is that it LIGHTS UP!!! So come Halloween night, the trick-or-treaters are in for a fun surprise! Doesn’t the moon and those bats flying around look so cool? My kids think I’m pretty much the smartest person ever for creating this, and I had SO much fun working on it together with my husband. Yes, I said FUN- I had fun working on a project with my husband, and we didn’t even fight. It’s like a Halloween miracle. Haha!
I wanted to stay pretty similar to the project the Home Depot did, because it’s the project they are offering to teach in their DIH Workshop. But I also knew I wanted to add some lights to make it to light up, because all the fun happens after dark on Halloween Night! And let me tell you, I am OBSESSED with how this turned out! I already have it sitting on my porch full of candy, and Halloween is still 2 weeks away!
And yes, my kids are totally sneaking the candy every time I turn my head- I hope we have some left for the trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. Haha!
How to make your own
Ok, so let’s get serious about how you can make your own cute Halloween candy holder.
This project is part of The Home Depot’s DIH Workshops. The Home Depot offers three types of Workshops: Do-It-Yourself (DIY), Do-It-Herself (DIH) and Kids. My kiddos beg to go to the kids workshops, and we LOVE them! This is kind of the same thing as the kids workshops, but for women!
Every Home Depot store around the country teaches this same class on the same day. You have to register to participate, because space is limited. You can find out more info, including the date and time, as well as register for the workshop here. Please note that it doesn’t cost anything to attend the workshop in your local store. But if you wish to build your own DIY Halloween candy holder, you are responsible for purchasing your own supplies.
For this workshop, 10 bloggers (including me) worked on the same project they are offering in the stores- this DIY Halloween candy holder. I’ve linked to everyone at the bottom of this post, so you can click-through and see all the different spins and little creative touches we’ve each put on our projects and get some fun ideas for when you go into the workshop and build your own. This workshop is a great opportunity for you to take all of the ideas you see on these talented ladies’ blogs and then go into your local Home Depot and get the project done- they provide all the tools and supplies, so if you aren’t sure how to use the tools, but would like to learn, this is the perfect project for you!
