The project today is for the granddaughters. The DIY Candy Crate makes me smile and I bet it makes them smile too. . The supplies for the project are all new…….and best of all….inexpensive. I like to do projects every now and then that don’t involve junk or reclaimed objects. I know some of you guys may not have a junk stash to work with. New is good too.
DIY Candy Crate
I decorated the mini wood crate with a mummy design for Halloween and the decorations can be changed with the seasons/holidays. Reuse and Recycle!
How To Make a DIY Candy Crate
Step 1. Spray paint the wood crate.
I applied several coats of paint allowing the paint to dry in between coats.
Step 2. Apply the black electrical tape…your own design.
Step 3. Stick on the googly eyes.
Step 4. Add a mason jar of candy or candy bars to the DIY candy crate.
I filled a mason jar with my favorite Halloween treat of candy corn and salted nuts. Taste just like a Payday candy bar. Have you had this treat? Yum.
On the opposite side of the crate I added a set of googly eyes and a strip of electrical tape for the mouth…..ghost or goblin.
The crate would also look cute painted orange and decorated as a pumpkin. A handle would look cute too. Now I”m on the hunt for a handle.
