Our friend, Jaime, over at That’s My Letter recently share this Frankenstein Candy Box. I loved the idea of having something cute to set on the porch while I take my little trick-or-treators around the neighborhood. Normally, I just leave a bowl of candy on the porch.. but how cute is the idea of a candy stand?! So here is my Halloween candy stand this year! Enjoy!

How to build a Halloween Candy Stand

Step 1: Paint Steel Bucket

Using Rust-Oleum Real Orange spray paint, paint the steel bucket. Allow to dry completely before painting jack-o-lanter face with the black acrylic paint. For the face I used a stencil for the triangles and hand painted the rest. Another option is to use vinyl stickers.

Step 2: Cut Wood

  • 4 x 4 at 23″
  • Qty 4: 1 x 6 at 2 opposing 45 deg. cuts

Step 3: Assemble Stand

Screw the 1 x 6 angled pieces into each side of the 4×4, screw from the top down at and angle, and the bottom at an angle.

Step 4: Sand and Stain Stand

Using 220 girt sand paper, sand the stand and prep for stain. For this I used Rust-Oleum Early American applied with a stain rag. Allow to dry.

Step 5: Attach bucket

Drill 3 holes into the bottom of the bucket. Set centered on the stand and screw in using wood screws.

Step 6: Decorate (optional)

I picked up some halloween goodies at Home Depot and the dollar store to add to my candy stand. I hot glued the spiders onto the stand and the bucket, added spider webs, and nailed on my dollar store “tricks and treats” sign.
