Today I bring to you a super sweet Candy Corn Bottle Vases project that you can create in a handful of minutes! It’s super simple and will look great for the Halloween season. As of late, I haven’t been able to resist candy corn crafts. I have ALL KINDS of ideas!
Candy Corn Bottle Vases
You’ll need spray paint in white, orange, and yellow. Also gather old vases and glass bottles in various shapes. Mine were a vase from ikea (the dotted one above), an Izze soda bottle, and a fancy Blood orange drink bottle. Clean and scrub off any labels off with Goo-Gone or dishwashing liquid. Let dry completely before painting.
Paint a basecoat of white on the jars following can directions and let dry completely. Admission: I did a terrible job at painting the basecoat and didn’t get a photo. I pulled the white pin from the spray paint. Please don’t do this. MAJOR FAIL! Haha!
My boyfriend William stepped in to save the day and tried to cover up my mistakes.He then sprayed orange on the middle part leaving a faint mist at top and bottom. He did a first coat, let it dry, then went back in and did another coat. Trust me, it works better to add the orange first! Let dry completely.
Now mist the yellow on the bottom until you get a solid coverage. This will take one or two coats. Let dry.
That’s it! You’re done! Display your jars with fall flowers in side or in a little grouping. It would be fun to creat an entire vignette on a table or mantle with candy corn sprinkled all around!

Until next time Swellions!

Too cool! Also, clever and simple as are most genius ideas. I will have to do this and soon. BTW, I’m also an Alexa!! Back in the fifties I was the only one and now we’re everywhere :o)
Totally awesome, and I would have guessed much harder to make, just by looking at them!
I would love to have you link up with Creative Me Monday at The Southern Institute! My linky party runs all week long. Here’s the link:
Hope to see you there!
What a great idea!
I thought there was going to be a lot involved with this project. I followed the link from the CRAFT page of FB and here I am and the project is so simple. I love it! Candy corn is my favorite!

Those are so cute! I already have the yellow and white spray paint so maybe I’ll try to re-create these someday.

Does it have to be with spray paint? or could you use craft paint?
Midnite Skys says

LOVE THIS! Im going to have to set some cool bottles aside for this project!
Awesome vases. Here are a few more.
I know this is an old post, but I wanted you to know this anyway. I just came across it yesterday. I am going to do this with ten 2L bottles and we’ll use them to bowl at a Halloween-themed, 3yo birthday party! Thanks for the great idea!
Just stopping by to let you know that I have featured your project on Fun Family Crafts! You can see it here
If you have other kid friendly crafts, I’d love it if you would submit them 🙂 If you would like to display a featured button on your site, you can grab one from the right side bar of your post above.

I LOVE these candy corn painted bottles..they are SUPER cute! Thank you for sharing how you made them. I hope it’s okay, I just finished a Halloween crafts/decor round-up and just couldn’t resist featuring your awesome candy corn bottles. You can see it here:
Thank you again for the tutorial… I can’t wait to try and make some 🙂
Did you have to prep the bottles in any way or does the paint stick without prep? Thanks!
The paint sticks to bottles that are clean and without any residue. Use some goo gone if there’s labels/stickiness you need to get rid ot.
