Simple homemade Halloween candy corn candle for less than $1


Is anything more quintessentially Halloween than candy corn?  I knew I wanted to make a cute candle centerpiece but do it on the cheap.

One of my favorite ways to help my money go farther is to reuse things I already have in my home. I also am no Martha Stewart so most of my craft projects are very simple.


Since I found both the candle and holder at my house. They cost me $0. If you had to buy these though I am sure you could find some at craft or dollar stores very inexpensively .

I bought the candy with a coupon and the whole big bag cost me less than a $1.  Even without a coupon, I am sure you could find a smaller bag under $1 or just pick up some candy corn in the bulk food section. You just need a few handfuls depending on the size of your candle and holder.


Once you have your materials, you just place the candle in the holder and then place the candy around it. This took me under a minute.  I  think it turned out super cute too!


I placed it in my entry way with some crafty pumpkins I bought after Halloween a few years ago. I love mixing up cute boutique decorations with my own homemade decorations. What is great about this project is that you can easily change what is around the candle for the next holiday. I can’t wait to add conversation hearts to it for Valentine’s day.

    That is super cute! Anything to do with candy corn stops me in my tracks. I saw this thing last year where people were buying construction type cones at Home Depot and spray painting them to look like honkin’ pieces of candy corn, then used them along their pathways and sidewalks. I went nuts on that one!

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    That’s really cute and considering I don’t like candy corn, even better. Don’t feel like I’m wasting good candy on the decor.
