As Halloweeny as I Get

You all love my made-up words.  Don’t lie.

After being seriously inspired by Diana at Vintage Mint, I went to Michael’s (my second home, in case you were wondering) and picked up some freakishly cute apothecary jars.  I had never even noticed the aisle with all the glass jars, vases and things, but oh man, it’s a dangerous new obsession.

The idea was to fill the jars with yummy, festive Halloween candy… but when you run to Rite-Aid the night before Halloween, you have to settle for the last crap bag of broken Reese’s Pieces and, gag, candy corn.  You know something’s awful when you can get a pound of it for $.99, and the midget bag of M&M’s next to it costs $3.99.

They are adorable, though... I have to say.
Reese's Pieces... the good stuff.
I won't judge the broken Reese's Pieces. That just means there are more to scarf down after I finish this post.

After all the candy is gone, I’m thinking of filling them with something else to use as a fall centerpiece on the dining room table.  Ideas??

  1. WOW-It IS the night before Halloween, huh?!? Crazy how time flies!

    OK-YAY!! You are my new best friend because you said “gag, candy corn”! That stuff is GROSS! At least you found one great use for that crap…because I must admit it looks UBER cute in those lil’ jars you found! Oh, and those adorable glass pumpkins you have too, perfection! And I see no reason at all why you can’t leave the candy in there through Thanksgiving, it’s all in fall-y colors so I think it will still be cute. :)

  2. did you not like the candy corn and peanuts that penny used to bring in?? dang now I want some.

    As for after the candy… maybe… okay wait never mind. I have no idea.

  3. gag, candy corn …ahahahah …it IS the worst! But it looks the best in pretty glass jars!

    I have to admit, I don’t really decorate too much either ….my husband wishes I did ..but there will be enough of that when the kids {someday} come.

    I love the framed print. the frame!!!!

  4. That’s too cute! I don’t have any great ideas for after; just maybe some leaves in fall colors laying on top of some smooth river rocks?

  5. I think you should put acorns in the jars after the candy is gone :)
    There’s ton in the cabin’s yard a shaver! Haha.

    PS, looove the frame too!!!!

  6. Ooooh I love it! Those little jars are sooo adorable! I really like the pumpkin jars too. Dang you Morgie, you’re making me want to go to Michael’s and copy you! I’m doing a bad job of saving $.

  7. I was going to say acorns for afterwards too! Or pinecones! Those could work for fall OR Christmas. :)

    your decorations are adorable. A little bit goes a long way when it’s so cute!

  8. I have that same white pumpkin candle! It smells so good! You could fill the jars with cranberries…that’s what I’m planning to do with mine :) They last for about 2 weeks and then you can just throw the old ones out for the birds and refill the jars with new ones.
