Candy Corn is to Halloween like Santa is to Christmas! You have to experience candy corn or Halloween just isn't Halloween! Not only is candy corn yummy to eat, it's colors are some of my most favorite! I wanted to do something with candy corns and a Candy Corn Wreath is what I got!
I didn't want to have to spend any money either, so I rummaged around in my craft closet and wood supplies. After some searching, I found all of this!
I cut out the candy corns on masonite board using a band saw. If you don't have the wood or tools to cut wood, you can use the foamy paper stuff...any color will do because we are going to cover it with CUTE candy cornish paper! I made a candy corn shape template, traced it onto my different paper color choices and cut them out. I distressed the edges with an orange colored ink.
Now, glue them onto the wood. I just used a glue stick but Mod Podge works great too.
Once all candy corns are completed, pull out the hot glue gun! Now, glue all those bad boys to a wreath. I am sure a foam wreath will work well. Like I said, I just used what I had in my closet!
I found a piece of fall garland that was the perfect length. Seriously, how lucky can one get? I made a circle out of the garland and placed the wreath on top, pulling the stems through to make it look full.
To fill in the gaps, cut six or more long pieces of coordinating fabric. Wrap them around the garland and wreath. Not only does this fill in the gaps, but it hides the wire on the wreath. It was still looking kind of blah in the center and this cream paper with black flowers gave it just the kick it needed. I cut a circle and glued it to the back of the wreath.
Just like that....that's what the back looks like.
Now, put up your candy corn wreath and enjoy the Spirit of Halloween!
I am a regular girl who loves to try and be creative. I am married to a one good looking police officer of a husband who makes me laugh everyday. We have three darling kids, Cooper 8, Charlee 6, and my baby Griffin just turned 2. I find joy in all the good the world has to offer!
Of course all you Gone with the Wind fans know where my name came from. I love all things Halloween (thanks Mom), brightly colored items catch my eye, love to craft-better at replicating that creating but working on this, dabbling into sewing, wanna be foodie and chef, loves to bake-especially cupcakes right now (seriously, who doesn't like cupcakes!), reading if there is ever a spare minute, good friends, and I take pleasure in hanging out with my hubby, two kiddos and extended family.
