Happy Friday!

How about an easy Halloween craft project?

We had some scary weather this week with severe thunderstorms

and two EF1 tornados touching down in neighboring counties.

Fortunately there were no injuries or fatalities from the storms, but there were

 downed trees and power outages for thousands in our area.

Severe thunderstorm with tornadoes Lake Norman

The heat index with the humidity on Monday was 111°,  crazy hot for us in NC!

Time to escape the heat with some retail therapy

and think about cooler temperatures of fall!

Regular readers know my love of Halloween

and HomeGoods is one of my favorite haunts!

HomeGoods is a short broom ride away and I popped in this week and

cackled with glee when I saw

they already had some Halloween goodies in stock!

I picked up a melamine witch candy bowl and pair of witch shoe candleholders . . .

“Witch Better Have My Candy”

I decided to use the witch shoe candleholders

to elevate the fun and the candy bowl. . .

Museum Putty, aka Quakehold, for Witch Shoe Halloween Candy Bowl #tips #tricks #halloween #witch #diy #candy ©homeiswheretheboatis.net

To attach the candleholders to the bowl, I used a favorite trick and product,

Museum Putty, aka, Quakehold,

that I’ve used before for temporary bonding to make a tiered server.

If you’re not familiar with Museum Putty or Quakehold,

it’s recommended for common household surfaces that are

 finished, sealed and waterproof, such as glass and china.

It has the texture of Silly Putty. . .just pinch off some pieces, rolling

them between your fingers to warm them and make them soft and sticky.

Apply the putty firmly to the bottom of your object, placing it on opposite sides

or around perimeter for secure adhesion.

Press your pieces together, slightly twisting to create a little suction to hold.

For best adhesion, let it sit overnight.

When ready to remove the putty, twist slightly while pulling gently.

Bonus: the putty pieces are reusable!

If you need a putty that is less visible for glass objects,

they make a Clear Gel Quakehold for Glass and Crystal.

I added some black paper shred to the bottom of the bowl . . .

And added some assorted candy to photograph my bowl.

HomeGoods and TJ Maxx always has cute holiday candy

in their food section or in the queue line by the registers.

 I packed the candy back up so my witchy fingers wouldn’t be tempted

and to save it for little ghouls and goblins that will be trick or treating.

    Hahaha, that is perfection!! And the phrase inside is priceless.
    That Monday weather was so crazy. We literally only had sprinkles, when all around us had the tornadic thunderstorms, large hail, and damaging winds. But we did experience a damaging storm 2 weeks ago. Lucky for us, we have no trees!

  8. August 11, 2023 at 8:53 am

    Oh Mary, this is perfect! You have me itching to go to HomeGoods, it looks like a Halloween treasure trove! I love museum putty, I need to get mine out and play! I didn’t know they made clear for glass, that’s very cool! There is something about witch legs that is just irresistible, and the candy you found is so cute! We have had the same crazy scary weather too, hopefully this heat will break soon!

    That is adorable Mary. I’m ready for fall. We’ve had so many storms across the south this year, I think we’re all a little weary. We’ve had huge oak trees fall and crush houses but thankfully the residents made it out safely. The heat is crazy ridiculous! Seeing all your HomeGoods Halloween stock at the store is fun. I love the standing pumpkin with the bugle. I need to get some of the putty as it’s quite handy. Thanks for sharing. Stay cool. Glad you’re okay! Clara❤️

    Mary, this is so cute and I love it. You know I don’t often say that about Halloween. I might have caught some of your excitement, and might even start cackling with glee 🤪 I enjoy your creativity and DIY’s! Happy Friday ♥️

    Mary ~ first of all I am so glad that those two tornadoes did not harm people. You must be sweltering down there! Fall is coming !! Now….how ingenious is this candy bowl ?!? I’ve been really I’ll with my third bout of Lyme disease and haven’t been able to leave the house for months but now you’ve inspired me to try and mosey around our local HomeGoods this weekend to check out all these wonderful autumn and Halloween treasures. Stay cool now !! Hugs, Dorinda

    Mary, your witch candy bowl is absolutely precious! The candies you placed in them are adorable as well. HomeGoods is about 30 minutes away from me, but I may to have to visit this weekend. You shared a lot of cute Halloween items. I think that smiling pumpkin would have had to come home with me. Happy Friday, sweet friend!

      You’re so smart! I bet for Christmas, there may be elf leg candle sticks that could be done the same way! Cute!

    I just ordered some museum putty and I’m on the hunt for witch shoes and a bowl. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Awww that’s such a cute and easy craft, Mary! I’m barely surviving this heat, but I’m glad you weren’t harmed by the tornadoes in your area. I hope you have a happy Sunday!

  18. August 12, 2023 at 5:40 pm

    Our favorite place to shop, Home Goods. Such a cute candy bowl with the witch legs. Sorry you are experiencing such bad weather. Stay safe.

  19. August 15, 2023 at 12:18 am

    Mary, I’m happy to know you were safe from the storms. We are in dire need of rain, but all we have is excessive heat. 106 yet again today!
    I’ll make a point to stop by TJ or Home Goods to see what fun candy is available. The orange and black swirl looks intriguing. I bought a bag of candy corn this week. Was surprised it was already out on the shelves. It’s in the pantry. If I open it, I can’t trust my witchy fingers to leave it alone.
    Like you, Halloween is a favorite here as well. I like to keep it on the whimsical side though. Your witch shoe candy bowl is just that!

    Such a darling idea!
