A couple of years ago I made this Halloween Candy Bar. I picked up different glass pieces and candlesticks at garage sales and thrift stores for a few weeks.
I love Halloween and I love candy so it was a given. At the time I was a member of the Moxxie Design Team. For those of you who don’t know Moxxie is a scrapbooking manufacturer based out of Muscatine, Iowa. So, part of my job as a design team member was to create projects, cards, pages, etc using their product. What a fun job, right?
Moxxie’s newest collection is Day of the Dead which would also look great on this candy bar. And If you don’t like the holiday themed tags you can always leave them off and have just the glass candy containers. It is a fun and versatile addition to your home.

I also love to re-purpose items. I looked around at garage sales and second hand/thrift shops for candle sticks and candle holders and the tops, glass bowls and candy dishes, until I was happy with my collection. Then I spray painted the candle sticks and holders all the same color. I wanted a brown base on all of mine. I had seen others on Pinterest with white bases. They are pretty but I thought the brown would work for most holidays and other occasions. Plus it matches the rest of my home decor.

I used the Rust-Oleum Brown Metallic. It has this awesome orange sparkle to it and I thought is was perfect for any fall decor. I love this stuff.
My husband helped me adhere the glass tops (bowls and such) to the base when it was completely dry. (He helps me a lot) He used the E6000 to get them to stay put and we let them dry for at least overnight.
I made my tags with the Moxxie Halloween line “All Hallows Eve” and added them into the mix. Then we got to fill them with our favorite Halloween candies. This cost more than the entire project. LOL!
My youngest son was still living at home then and he loved the candy bar. He asked the next year if we could set it up again. We also ended up using it for his birthday celebration when he turned 18.
I hope you like my candy bar. It was a fun project. I need to get it out again soon. Maybe this weekend since my youngest will be home from college for a couple of days. I think he would love to see it again.
What kinds of holiday decor do you make or put out for Halloween? I would love to know.
