DIY Friday – Candy Corn Bottles

DIY Friday – Candy Corn Bottles

I’ve been so caught up with planning for Thanksgiving that I’d forgotten to post about a DIY I did for Halloween. So for today’s DIY Friday here’s a quick and easy project found on Pinterest from blogger Marji over in Ashbee Design. She had gotten the idea from another and then enhanced on it. 

Here is my version with tutorial of recycling bottles into Candy Corn Decor. 

   
    
    
 
It’s really that easy!! It didn’t take much time at all. Just waiting for the paint to dry. I let the white paint dry overnight only because I got distracted doing other things around the house but this could’ve easily been done in half a day {if your a perfectionist like me giving it a couple extra coats will take longer}!!

Hi Lovelies!! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving last week! Mine wasn’t too bad. I got to throw my first Thanksgiving dinner since the in-laws went away on a trip to Portugal for a relative’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. 

So stress was inevitable but I was soooooooo EXCITED to throw my FIRST Thanksgiving in my home and wanted everything to be perfect. Of course, that never happens with my luck! Our friend has quite a few food allergies and I did my best to accommodate them but sad to say the Turkey came out a little bland…..live and learn I guess. Hopefully I’ll have another opportunity too cook for Thanksgiving in the future (if I’m not visiting my family in Florida, then my mother-in-law usually takes over the holidays!).

Here is a peak at my table though…..that came out lovely!!

   
 I realized I took these photos before putting the glasses and utensils on the table  but by then our guests had already arrived. 

The centerpieces were made from the vases I had leftover from my wedding, with some dried acorns, string lights, and a floating candle for the ones on each end. The center one was just a simple fall bouquet of flowers on top of a tree slab I had kept from my best friend’s woodland themes babyshower. 

Hope you are all enjoying your week and continue to do so!! I’m spending a couple of days with the hubby at our nations capital, looking forward to posting all about it soon.
