No Calorie Candy Corn

So I was pursing Pinterest the other day (who am I kidding, everyday) and found this tutorial on making old glass bottles or jars into cute Halloween decorations!


So I was all stoked to do this went to the dollar store and picked out my vases and then headed over to the craft store to pick up the paint. Then I just kept thinking about how pretty my brand new vases were, and how I would have to store them somewhere, and how I was about to pay for three cans of spray paint and not use that much of it, and then I just kept thinking and thinking and thinking about how I don't really need candy corn bottles.

I just LOVE candy corn - a lot.

So I started thinking - in a more linear fashion this time - and thought if I could use scrapbook paper I could change the paper out every season.

So with my vases, a few sheets of colored paper and my paper shredder - this is what I came up with!

  18. I love autumn colours and oranges and browns go so nicely with Halloween too. We are getting more into the habit if celebrating Halloween in the UK now. Great fun.

  19. I love scrapbooking, I haven't done it in a while, but I did a lot of that when I was in high school. I love doing stuff like that and making collages. I like this project (of course I prefer the real candy, but...). Yeah you can do Christmas, St. Patty's Day, Valentines Day, 4th of July will be really cool. Cute blog!
