Affordable Easter Decor… using Dollar Store Candy
Written by on Monday, March 16th, 2015

There is a gold mine of Easter decor waiting for you in your local dollar store,

and not in the decor section, but in the “CANDY” aisle!

Check out some of the goodies I bought home to experiment with…


In the end, I mixed & matched about $6 of the candy to create several different looks inside apothecary jars, but bowls or clear candle vases would work too.Ā  The reason I choose apothecary jars (when displaying candy for more than a day) is because the lids keep it safe from bugs & sometimes, little hands.

Below are a few fun candy combinations I came up with, adding in some Easter accessories I already had, including a simple greeting card.Ā  I hope these ideas inspire you to consider this affordable option. šŸ™‚

1 Foil Bunny with Jelly Beans

You could use even more candy to create a large, beautiful centerpiece for your Easter table.

The possibilities are endless so enjoy the creativity, and…

    Eileen, I love your Easter ideas. Can also, be used for older children. A little candy and a gift card put in the jar.

    Very good ideas! I just bought some of those tall jars and instead of putting the pasta in them right now, I’ll be putting in Easter grass and candy!!!! lol The pasta can wait!
