Halloween Chalkboard Candy Bowl | Amy from The Blissful Bee

Hey guys! It’s Amy from The Blissful Bee and I’m here today with a simple halloween DIY project! The other day I made a quick trip to my local $1 store looking for some cheap halloween decorations that I could turn into a project. One of the many items I bought was this adorable little metal bin. Right when I saw it I knew I could turn it into a fun candy bowl.


My plan was to give it some sort of chalkboard makeover. I already had most of my supplies on hand from past projects – chalkboard spray paint, painters tape and some scull themed ribbon. I picked up some white chalk for just .89 cents and was ready to begin! 

First, I tapped off the top portion of the metal bin. I then flipped it over and gave it a coat or two of chalkboard spray paint. After I gave it about 10 minutes to dry, I wrote “Boo!” onto the chalkboard portion of the bin. I then tied a bow to one of the handles with my ribbon and was done! See? Simple, right? 
I filled my candy bin with some Lifesaver mints (for two reasons): 
1. I love them!
 2. I liked the white contrast against the orange and black bin. 
If you liked this makeover, make sure to stop by The Blissful Bee over the next few weeks for a ton of Halloween themed projects! I will also be involved in a Halloween Home Tour on October 17th and 18th, so don’t miss it!!
