DIY Candy Dishes made with Pirouline Tins

If you're new here, I post a recycled Pirouline tin craft every month! You can find them all here.

First, can you believe this is my 24th recycled Pirouline tin project? So many projects and so many cookies!

Second, This project is inspired by Autumn. This is my first time living in a place that actually has a real Autumn (Seattle area), cool temperatures, leaves changing colors and home to the Pumpkin Spice Latte!

I've really caught the Fall bug, so I've been doing lots of fall crafts and decorating for Autumn and Halloween. These treat dishes are perfect for having little candies out to snack on and you could put them on your porch for trick-or-treaters!

Are you wondering where the Pirouline tin is in this post?? Well, I didn't use it. I know, this is a recycled Pirouline project and I didn't even use the tin! What's up with that?

Well, For this project I'm recycling the lids of those tins!

I'm showing you 2 different ways to alter these lids into candy dishes.

Version #1- The Glitter Dish.

Supplies: Empty tin lid, Glitter Paper, Patterned Paper, Adhesive, Scissors, Pencil

1. Start by tracing around your lid onto the back of your glitter paper. Cut out your circle.
2. Adhere your glitter paper circle into the lid.
3. Cut a strip of paper to go around the outside, you'll need about 13" in length so you may have to use to pieces.
4. Glue the patterned paper around the side of the lid.

Version #2- The Painted Dish.

Supplies: Empty Tin Lid, Paint Brush, Orange and Black Paint.

1. Take your orange (or other light color) paint and paint the inside of your lid/candy dish. You may need multiple coats for this.
2. Let it dry.
3. Take black paint and paint the outer side ege of the tin lid and you can also decorate the inside with stripes, dots or another fun pattern.
4. Let dry.

Fill with candy!!

I think Reese's are the best Halloween candies, so I obviously used them. 

What's you favorite candy?

  1. These are awesome!! :) I LOVE the glitter paper inside the dish. Perfect and sparkly. And REESE'S. Wow you've flung a craving on me. Usually I'm a fruit-flavored over chocolate kind of girl. Gummies or skittles all day, every day. LOL Except I NEED some Reese's now. Thanks a lot. ;)

    1. Thanks! You should definitely go get some Reeses. Because they're the best candy. ever.
      And I don't even really like chocolate that much, but I LOVE Reeses. ;)
