Candy Corn Display ~

Holiday | Entertaining Inspiration
I will start this post reminding all of you how much a dislike candy corn - I know, you are probably thinking, who doesn't like candy corn? Me! Now as much as I dislike it, it does scream Halloween to me. And I know others like it, so I have come up with a fun way to display the awful treat. 

I started with this Jiffy Pots from Home Depot - they were $1.99 for 26.
I then grabbed a pedestal...

Added this broken clock face to the top...


I had a few left over black RedVines. So I cut them in half and added a spooky black crow to top them off. 

I then filled the Jiffy Pots with candy corn and a few skeleton hands for a little more spookiness. I decided to keep the pots simple, but you could easily add some ribbon, paper or even a little bling to embellish them.

And to complete the display, I added a few sticks from my backyard. 

Even though I won't be eating any of these holiday favorites, I can't wait to display them for Halloween!
