Candy Corn Wreath
Last Saturday I had a Candy Corn Party which was tons of fun! The idea was for everyone to make some sort of decoration using candy corn. I had a bunch of ideas that I got from a magazine and one of them was a candy corn wreath:
Isn't it pretty? I was a little intimidated at first but once I got started I realized how easy it was. It took maybe 2 1/2 hours to make (it's hard to tell since I had to stop and tend to my children quite often). Anyways if you want to make one yourself here's some rough instructions on how to do it:
hot glue gun
lots of hot glue sticks (I probably used about 10-12)
black duck tape
-wrap your wreath with black duck tape
-with your glue gun make about a 3-5 inch line and attach candy corn. Don't make too long of a line so that it doesn't dry before you have time to attach the candy corn.
-I didn't cover the back of the wreath with candy corn so that it hangs better and the candy corn won't get knocked off when it bounces against the door.
-Cut your ribbon whatever length you want and hang! (I glued my ribbon to the wreath so that it won't slide)
