DIY Candy Corn Candle Holder

Candy Corn Candle Holder

Fall is such a wonderful season to enjoy. As we watch the leaves turn from green to orange and browns, the temperatures drop and everything around us is pumpkin and apples then you know it is one of the best seasons of all. I wanted to share this simple DIY that can bring fall into your home for under $10.  Your love of candy corn can make the perfect decor. You just need a few supplies to create a unique centerpiece. Simply take a small glass candle holder or container, fill it with candy corn and top it with a tea light. That’s it! It’s a perfect, yet simple centerpiece to a Fall dinner table.


  • Glass Jar
  • Bag of Candy Corn
  • Tea Light Candle
  • Ribbon (optional)


  1. Pour the bag of candy corn into the glass jar, filling slightly to the top.
  2. Add your tea light candle.
  3. Display your beautiful decoration on your table or mantle.

This candle holder can be displayed in many different ways. Add a ribbon of your favorite season. Add crystal clear or blue marbles during the spring months. You can also add m&m’s or holiday colored candy corns for Christmas. The options are endless.


St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Trap & Bait

St. Patrick’s Day is rounding the corner. Whether you get decked out in green every year or never really celebrate, this craft is sure to get you and your family in the spirit! Make some leprechaun bait and a trap to try and catch one of those silly little fellas!

Leprechaun bait is a crowd-pleasing snack with a festive look and delightful taste. There is even a delicious healthy version! The salty and sweet mix is great for movie night while the veggies are perfect for an afterschool snack.

What’s more, Personal Creations created a tag for your leprechaun bait that makes for adorable goodie bags. Download the printable, cut and fold along the respective lines, and staple to your treat bag. Your little ones will love the cute rhyme!

Now that you have your bait, it’s time to lay the trap. Help your children cut, fold, and glue to build a tiny little leprechaun house. Add St. Patrick’s themed decor, such as a pot of gold, and your tasty bait to complete the trap.

Leave it overnight and check for a leprechaun in the morning. If you caught a leprechaun, he has to grant you three wishes in order to be released. It’s also possible that the pesky guy got away with some of your gold and treats.

Just like the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Santa, the whole family can enjoy the thrill of receiving a visit from a St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun!
