Step 1: What You Need

The Stuff:

Bag of candy corn

Any size glass jar, contain or vase

Tea Candles 

As stated earlier - all these items can be purchased at your local dollar store - making each candle cost only a little more than a dollar.  If there's no dollar store near you (or it's jus not your style) - a craft store will sell the glass jars and the tea candles and a grocery store will have the candy corn.

Step 2: Last Step

What now?
Simply pour desired amount of candy corn in the bottom of your glass contain and nestle the tea candle into the candy corn.  And you're done.  Can't get any easier than that. Light your candle(s) and enjoy your new hand made Halloween decoration.  Cute and thrifty!

    I think it would look cool if the candy corn was melted and marbled. :)

    Oh heck..... the dollar store is my style

    Cute! Does the heating up of the candy corn give off any candy corn like aroma?

    I wish! The dollar store sells scented tea candles though and an think pumpkin spice or cinnamon apple would be appropriate :)
