    Easy DIY Football Candy Box

    Football season is in full swing. Gathering with friends and family is what I look forward to the most. The assortment of food and snacks is always my favorite thing. Having a place for sweets is a must! I wanted to make a candy box that would go with all our game day hosting. We like using materials that are durable and easy to customize. Creating an easy DIY football candy box was perfect for all our SNICKERS® loving family and friends.

    The DIY candy box is a great project for beginners. The wood pieces can be found at your local craft store or home improvement store. It could easily be personalized to your liking – colors, design, or style. Maybe paint in your favorite team colors or personalize with your family name. The possibilities are endless.
