While looking for Fall decoration ideas, I found this on Pinterest. While I don’t eat much candy corn, decorating with it is fabulous! (Visit Woman’s Day for more ideas on decorating with candy corn.)
I loved them because they didn’t scream “HALLOWEEN!!” at you, so you could use them for all of Fall. Perfect for me because I am not someone who will change decorations too frequently. The only problem was that I wasn’t going to pay $40 for the large hurricane glass, or even $25 for the smaller one. I suppose we should just get this out there now: I am cheap – thrifty, if you want to be nice about it. I love a good bargain, and it physically pains me to pay a lot of money for anything. So, I set out on a mission to find something that would let me get the look, without paying that price. It turned out to be pretty easy, actually. Walmart had something very similar for $5! And because I don’t believe in “matchy-matchy”, I bought two similar lamps, both $5 each.
So, here’s the cost breakdown
- Two hurricane glasses each $5
- The shorter candle was about $3
- Taller candle was $5
- Bag of candy corn was less than $2.
- Total Cost = $20!
I love it on table by the front door, next to the silver(plated) pitcher I found at Faith Farm for $2. Have I mentioned that I love that place?
Added bonus: the candles are scented, so it smells lovely everytime you walk by.
The only down-side to using candy corn for decorating? My son keeps eating them!
So, what are your favorite Fall/Halloween decorations?
