Halloween is right around the corner and I am busy decorating my home for the fun. No, I am not one of those people to go all out with the holiday theme. Truthfully anything scary looking makes me want to run and hide in a closet. I have never been the one to dress as a vampire or anything gory. I was always the princess, bumblebee or raggedy Ann doll. However, I do like Halloween itself. I have many amazing memories of dressing up and heading out with my friends to fill my pillow case full of candy only to come home and start bartering away what I didn’t like. Now that I am older, and really probably shouldn’t go trick or treating anymore, I just buy my favorite candies at the store and have them readily available in my home to feed my Halloween itch. (No bartering needed this time).

With all of the favorite Halloween candies laying around in my house right now I wanted to find a fun way to display them that would make them easily available and also add to my holiday decor. I decided to make a display that would be multi-functional and useful. So far everyone who has come over is loving my fun candy display, so I thought I would share with you how I made it.
DIY Pumpkin Tower Candy Display
You will need:
3 Foam Craft Pumpkins
1 Large Dowel Rod
1 Board of Styrofoam
Glue (superglue or hotglue)
Fill dirt or sand
1) Fill your planter 1/3 of the way full with dirt. This will help hold your dowel rod still and keep your display from tipping over.
2) Size your Styrofoam board to fit inside of your planter. Push it down inside the planter to cover your dirt.
3) Using a drill, carefully create a hole in the bottom of each pumpkin and at the top of the bottom two.
4) Push your dowel rod through the holes creating a tower effect with the pumpkins. Be sure to leave enough dowel rod available at the bottom to push through the Styrofoam and into the dirt.
5) Place glue at each hole on the pumpkins to help hold them in place.
6) Decorate your pumpkins using paint, vinyl or stickers.
7) Fill the base around your pumpkins with Hershey’s candy and share the goodness.
