DIY {candy caddy}

So about 2 years ago…about the time we moved in…I started hinting to my hubby some changes I wanted to do in the kitchen. 2 years later he finally came around. Before he could change his mind I scheduled a kitchen remodel on his calendar – our weekends fill up too fast I knew I had to get it on the calendar. He isn’t so much a huge fan of DIY projects so to butter him up a bit before the weekend hit I made him a little treat. The idea is basically like my craft organizers…same concept…sweeter rewards ๐Ÿ™‚

Hopefully my ‘sweet’ reminder will help soften the blow when he starts tearing out countertops….we’ll see…

I used the same label as I did on yesterday’s project because I just like it so much.


A close up of what the label looked like:


On a separate note: Baby sister finally fits in these shoes…simply adorable!

By the way – no correct guesses yet. Some are picking up on my clues, but no one is even close to what they mean. I’ll be more obvious tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

  • rachel denbow - This is SUCH a great idea. I’m sure he appreciates the thoughtfulness, too. My next questions is where did you get that soda? It looks yummy at 11:45 p.m.!

    P.S. I still need your mailing address!!!

  • Jeannette Swan - My jaw drops at how cute and creative EVERYTHING you do is!! Can’t wait to see the kitchen.

  • Kari - I’m throwing out another guess on your upcoming project…how about a screened in back porch, or maybe a greenhouse…oh, I give up! I’ll just keep checking each day!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • christina larsen - Wow, you truly think of everything. Maybe I need to do that and my man will be more helpful around the house; jk, he is helpful. Although, he does love m&m’s.

  • Shannon Phillips - How adorable and creative! I can’t wait to see the kitchen when it is done!

  • Amy - My guess: You’re planning a big party.

  • meg duerksen - you are so funny.
    it seems like you both enjoy each others company at least so if nothing else you will have each other (and a really big mess)
    have fun.
    you should watch The Money Pit just for fun the night before you start. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • sheridan - Oh I’m still so curious…I’m guessing something that you are building by the tree that has to do w/ the number 8. Oh I just get so excited to see what could it be!



  • Faith Buss - Nice. My hubby just finished a laundry room renovation. Think I’d adapt this and make it a thank you! Or maybe a Save-the-Date for the next project on my list. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • melanie - Love it! So glad my husband doesn’t read this blog! No guesses and its killing me not knowing what you’re up to…:)


  • patti - i just love this idea. i’m totally stealing it for the yard remodeling we’re doing this weekend! thanks for sharing!!

  • amy stamm - you are a nutt!! Love it!!! Love it!!
    Thanks for sharing!!

  • alex - How did you make the caddy carrier (the box)? I love this idea for my husband….he loves candy!

  • Melissa - I don’t know how you do it girl! Wish I had more time for all these fun crafts. They look awesome!

  • Damaris @Kitchen Corners - What a brilliant idea. I love having fizze drinks at my parties because it’s so colorful but this is even more so.

  • Michelle - I wanted to let you know I posted about this…and made one myself (a few months ago)! It was a bit hit w/ my hubby!

    Thanks for the idea!

  • Kendra - This is ADORABLE!! I have a friend who is pregnant and almost due, i thought this would be a cuute little gift for her after she gives birth. Question though; How did you change the box from pink to that woody cork looking color??? LOL i am so not crafty ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • lisa - How did you get the caps back on? When I open bottles, they usually bend.

  • vicki poynter - I’m new to this. How did you get the bottle caps back on the bottles once the candy is in?

  • Budget Fatherโ€™s Day gift ideas. | HerCanberra - […] These candy bottles are for save-the-date wedding flavours, but would work just as well for your sweet tooth Dad. […]

  • Melissa Schraiber - Thanks for the inspiration. It’s great that you have come up with an idea and that it is so easy that others can enjoy it too! I <3 it!

  • Pamela - Hi! Awesome idea! But iยดve got a couple of questions:

    how did you remove the lid from the bottle without damaged it? and how did you put it on again?

    Thanks for the help!

    (Iยดm from Peru… so sorry for the bad english ๐Ÿ™ )

  • Stephanie - I’ve made something similar using the Starbucks bottles, but I would LOVE to know how you got the “lids” back on the soda bottles since they have to be opened/removed with a bottle opener.
    Thanks bunches!

  • Jennifer - It’s a pretty great idea to treat him with some candy. He’s probably much more willing to help since you didn’t just run to the supermarket to buy something but prepared these candy bottles yourself. Love it!

  • Stacey - Love this, but how did you get the bottle tops back on? Mine always bend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Laura Riner - Can you please step by step tell me how it’s all done? I love the idea

  • Ruth Tramison - I have seen several comments where about how to get the bottle caps back on. Can you explain this please? Also, what kind of paper did you use?
