You know what it means when the kids start back to school? It means the best time of year is right around the corner! Lol, that’s what it means to me at least. Once we hit September it’s smooth sailing to Halloween and then right around the corner is Thanksgiving and then comes the best time of the year; Christmas! Can you tell I’m a wee bit excited for this time of year? One of my favorite things to do is create easy crafts and fun holiday decor. I’ve got a treat for you today because this post is all about a fun Halloween DIY. More specifically, it’s about how to make your own Halloween candle holder with supplies from the Dollar Store. Yippee for budget friendly crafts.
Stick around after this post because you won’t want to miss a few other fall dollar store DIY’s.
What are your favorite types of crafts to create? I love Halloween crafts because I feel like it’s the one time of year when you can use exceptionally bold colors (orange and yellows and blacks!) and get away with it!
I tend to decorate with neutral colors the rest of the year, so this is the time to throw in some color!
Want to know my favorite part about this DIY candle holder? All of the supplies are from the dollar store.

- Glass canisters; I purchased two different sizes (Small and Large) for varying height.
- Glass cylinder vase; make sure these fit fairly snug inside the glass canisters.
- Candy corn
- Hot glue gun
This is a super easy Halloween DIY. All you need are the supplies and the rest consists of putting it together!
As a matter of fact, let me show you with a video!
Just in case you would rather read how I put these holiday candle holders together, I’ll recap it for you below.
How to make your own Halloween Candle Holders with supplies from the dollar store;
- Pour the candy corn in the glass canisters
- Shuffle the glass cylinder vases in the canisters around the candy corn until the vase sits near the bottom
- Hot glue a ribbon around the mouth of the canisters
- Place a candle in the middle
After the Halloween season is over you can replace it with Christmas candy, or any season candy for that matter!
