Halloween Candy Table with DIY Chalkboard Labels & a $200 Target GIVEAWAY!!

Today I have a fun and easy Halloween project to share and a great giveaway for a $200 Target gift card!! One of my hands-down favorite things to do on the blog is offer you guys a giveaway and this is a good one!! I also got to team up with some of my favorite bloggers. We were each asked to create a DIY Halloween craft that could be repurposed in our homes.

When it comes to seasonal decor, I like to keep it pretty simple. I am more about creature comforts and mixing in more texture when fall rolls around. That’s all fine and dandy, but I also have 2 little boys who just happen to love Halloween. So, I like to opt for Halloween decor that I can reuse or transition into other crafts throughout the year. As you can see this project was a really great fit for us and how we live. I also don’t like to spend a lot of money on things like this and that is where Coupons.com comes in.  Have you used Coupons.com before? It is pretty great for online shopping.

I chose to do a Halloween Candy Table and make DIY Chalkboard Labels. We like to have friends over when we trick or treat and have some snacks out for the night. As you can see, we like to get our sinful candy eating ways done in one night. This will get us through until next year.

I purchased my project materials on target.com and used codes from the coupons.com website to save at target.com. The codes I used are no longer on the website but they offer new codes all the time. By using these codes I saved 30% on the home decor items I selected, got free shipping, and an extra 5% off using my Target Red Card. It added up to some pretty big savings!

For this project, I used home items that I could reuse later on. Glass jars, an apothecary jar, and white bowls all served as candy and food containers for my Halloween Candy Table. Choosing basic items like this for my foundation is great because I can reuse them for other things in my home after the holiday is over. I am already re-using the glass jars for Zoey’s dog food and the bowls are great for growing boys who like to eat cereal in large quanities.

I made the DIY Chalkboard Labels using these items:

• Paper Straws (also from Target)

• Craft store wood plaques

• Chalkboard spray paint

• Hot glue & hot glue gun

I chose hot glue since that would be easy to disassemble  and I can reuse the chalkboard labels for other projects like place cards and food labels for other events.

      They wanted it to stay out until Halloween. I had to break it to them that I was hiding it until then, then I let them each have a handful. xo Kristin
