Handing out candy on Halloween night is one of my favorite things to do. Our neighborhood is full of elementary school aged kids and last year we had a TON of trick or treaters. This year I wanted our house to be really inviting and not scary at all, but still feel full of Halloween fun.
Candy Land is the absolute perfect theme for a Halloween front porch, don't you think?
All of the decorations that I made for this Candy Land theme Halloween front porch are Dollar Tree crafts! They were really easy and affordable to make.

To make these cute candy decorations I used:

By far the easiest candy decoration to make were these ones. This is an empty wrapping paper roll that I covered with purple foil gift wrap and tied the ends with curling ribbon.
The next easiest were these pool noodle candies. I wrapped a pool noodle with colored duct tape before cutting it into 4 equal pieces. I wrapped each piece with some cellophane and tied the ends with ribbon.
To make the candies that look like peppermint, I used plastic party plates. With my Cricut machine I cut some Dollar Tree vinyl to add to the plates. Then I wrapped them in cellophane with the same curling ribbon as the other candies.
The lollipops were made the same way, I just added a paper straw for the lollipop stick.
I wanted a wreath to match the garland. I used a Dollar Tree wreath form, some mesh ribbon, a Halloween garland, and some adorable Halloween wired ribbon. I also included some fairy lights.
I'm obsessed with how this giant cupcake decoration turned out! I used a laundry basket as the base and covered it with poster board that I accordion folded. Then I took 3 green pool noodles and cut them in half lengthwise. I used my hot glue gun to attach the pool noodles to the laundry basket. Then I wrapped the pool noodles and glued a small section down at a time. I topped the giant cupcake decoration with a purple ornament to cover the small hole left when I was done wrapping the pool noodles.
To attach the candy decorations to the garland I taped some pipe cleaners to the back and tied them on. My front porch is well covered and protected from the weather, so I wasn't too worried about how secure the decorations were.
To finish off the look, I added these 2 Halloween signs and door mat from the Dollar Tree Plus section. Each one was $5. I can't wait to see the decor coming to this new section of Dollar Tree for future holidays!
