Halloween is starting to happen at our house! I love DIY projects, so this Halloween I have come up with a few fun projects that are very inexpensive. I found a lot of ideas on Pinterest. First, I went to the Dollar Store to get candy corn and construction paper.
1. Candy Corn infused Vodka
Flavored vodkas are all the rage now. However, instead of spending $25 or more on a bottle, I picked up a bottle of vodka on sale at the grocery store and I bought two bags of candy corn from the Dollar Store. I put two cups of vodka in a mason jar and added two cups of candy corn. I put the mason jar in the fridge for four hours. The candy corn was partially disolved in the jar. It was a mess. I strained the mixture through a wire mesh basket. I had to strain it twice. I can’t wait to use this to make martini’s on Halloween.
- 1:1 ratio of vodka and candy corn
- mason jar
- wire mesh strainer
Just mix and soak for four hours and strain.
2. Candy Corn Candles
I used the left over candy corn to make some lights. I put the candy corn in a small mason jar and added a tea light.

I used the construction paper to cut out bats and put them on the wall. It was super easy. I printed out the template from Country Living. You can find it here and I used a little masking tape on the back to stick them to the wall. Target had a witch’s hat for $3!!! Score. I used a little fishing wire to hang it from the ceiling to make it look like it was floating
