Making the Season Bright with Leftover Candy from Halloween Night!

Did your kiddos bring home their weight in candy this Halloween?  Before you're tempted to sneak a(nother) handful after they're snug in bed tonight, consider setting some aside for more festive uses! {With your lit'l trick-or-treater's approval of course. ;)}  I've gathered a dozen ideas that'll transform that leftover candy into sweet opportunities for celebration during these holiday months!

Thanksgiving and Christmas centerpiece, favor, and gift ideas, coming right up! ...

*You'll find the original source & tutorials (when available) at the clickable link below each image.  Please pin from original source.  Thank you!

Last, but certainly not least, you can donate leftover candy at a "Halloween Candy Buy Back".  Participating dentists will "buy" kids' Halloween candy at scheduled events throughout the U.S.  This candy is then sent to military deployed in harm's way.  What a wonderful way to get into the spirit of Thanksgiving, showing gratitude to the troops and giving them a taste of home!  Visit and enter your zip code in a search feature located at the top right of the webpage to find a participating dentist in your area.

I hope you've found these ideas helpful!  
Have a beautiful start to this festive month, friends!
