Since Halloween is right around the corner (seriously, where has this year gone?!), I wanted to make something festive (and colorful) to hang in our kitchen. You know I love wreaths… so what could be better than a wreath made of candy corn??
Before I got to crafting I went down to the basement to check on my “craft-stash” of goodies and see what I already had on hand. Once I realized I only needed to buy two things (candy corn and a wreath form), this became a craft-do. I made a quick trip to the dollar store and for just $2.07, I had all of my materials and was ready to go. Quick note- you will have more than enough candy corn left over at the end… so eat your heart out while you work :)
Below are the directions to help you make your very own candy corn wreath! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section and happy crafting!
Candy Corn Wreath
- Wreath form
- 1 bag of candy corn
- Black spray paint (I used my left over chalk spray paint)
- Clear acrylic spray paint
- Black grosgrain ribbon
- Hot glue gun
- First, spray paint your wreath form and let it dry for about 10 minutes.
- I started from the inside and worked my way out. Lay your first row of candy corn on top of the wreath form and, once you like how it looks, hot glue each one to the form.
- Repeat for the 2nd and 3rd rows.
- Since this was a thicker wreath form, I decided to glue one row of candy corn on the outside of the form as well as on the inside and I’m glad I did. It definitely makes the wreath look fuller and more colorful.
- Once all the candy corn has been glued down, spray the entire wreath with the acrylic spray paint and let dry. Note– for the first wreath I made, I used modge podge on top of the wreath and that was a bad idea. The color from the candy corn started to drip off and the wreath became sticky. Needless to say, that one went right into the trash. For wreath number two, I used the acrylic spray paint and there was no mess at all.
- Use your ribbon and hang up your wreath!
