If you are frugal and crafty, DIY Halloween centerpieces are a great way to add a bit of holiday spirit into your home. While I was searching through Pinterest for Halloween crafts, I found upcycled wine bottles that were painted to look like candy corn!
I am going to let you in on a small secret…I LOVE candy corn. Yup, I can’t lie..for some reason, that stuff just calls to me! It’s not healthy, natural or organic but every year I buy a bag or two and holler at my teens when they eat it all. I thought candy corn painted wine bottles would be the perfect addition to my fall table. Its a great place for me to decoratively store my delicious candy corn!
This candy corn craft was incredibly easy and required few supplies, which are two very important requirements when it comes to me and crafts.
I thought this cute Halloween craft would be the perfect addition to my fall table and a good place for me to decoratively store my delicious candy corn (it’s also a great eco friendly Halloween idea!). This candy corn craft is also an easy way to repurpose a few wine bottles!
Since I love having a before-bed glass of wine, we usually have a wine bottle or two stashed away for crafting purposes. I also have an art closet with a ridiculous amount of spray paint in assorted colors.
Basically, I had to buy absolutely nothing to get started making these DIY Halloween centerpieces. Buying nothing is always a plus when it comes to crafting! Really, all you need is spray paint and wine bottles but to make things look pretty, a decorative plate, some dried flowers, and some tasty candy corn will also help.

DIY Halloween Centerpieces Directions
Place the wine bottles on the newspaper in a well-ventilated area. Outside in the driveway works great!
Paint the bottles white. You may need a few coats. I painted the whole bottle to act as a base coat for the other colors.
Spray paint the middle of the bottles orange and let dry
Spray paint the bottom of the bottles yellow and let dry
Place candy corn wine bottles on the decorative plate and add dried flowers and candy corn to finish your DIY Halloween centerpieces
If you really want to get crazy, turn your new candy corn wine bottle into a wine bottle lamp perfect for your next Halloween party.

I can’t believe how pretty those bottles are! And we certainly have enough wine bottles that we could do something like that with them! Love it!
