For example, today I’m going to share a tutorial on how to make a candy corn wreath that only cost me $3 and really adds to my Halloween decor!

 

Materials
Candy Corn: a 1 lb-21 oz bag should work fine {$1.98 at Walmart for 21 oz bag}
Wreath Form: I used a 12 inch form {$1.00 at Dollar Tree}
Acrylic Paint: I used Americana Bright Orange. Black would work fine, too {Already had some on hand}
Total Project Cost: $2.98


Directions

Step 1: Paint the wreath form. One coat should be fine. This will help to camouflage any spaces you have between candy corns.

Step 2: Glue candy corns on, one at a time. Start in the middle and try to use the better looking ones. Put broken or otherwise odd candy corns in a bowl to eat later. I started by gluing  the first row of candy corns all facing the same direction. Start the next row going in the other direction. They won’t always line up perfectly, so just try to align them the best you can. Once you’re done, you won’t notice the imperfections anyway.


Step 3: Repeat the gluing pattern until the entire front, outside, and inside of the wreath is covered in candy corn. It helped to use broken candy corns on the inside and outside to fill in larger gaps that were too small for a full candy corn. No one will see those anyway, right?
Step 4:Wrap some tulle around the wreath and tie a bow at the top. You can use this to hang your wreath or to just use as decoration.

Thanks again, Vanessa, for having me be part of your holiday celebration! I hope you all have a fantastic Halloween!
