30 Crafty Days of Halloween

Hi everyone! I’m Allison and I am the blogger behind the blog A Glimpse Inside. I’m thrilled to be participating in Vanessa’s 30 Crafty Days of Halloween again this year and I have a super quick and easy project to share with you.

This project is a no sew and it so fast. Just need to let the paint dry but if you have a blow dryer handy, you can get this project done in about 30 mins or less. Here’s how to make it.
Burlap Candy Corn Decor
Burlap, 2 pieces cut into the shape of a candy corn
Acrylic paint
Glue Gun
Paint brushes or stencil brushes

Begin by cutting your burlap into the shape of a candy corn. Take one piece of burlap and start at the top with the white paint and paint the tip of the candy corn white. I used a foam stencil brush to paint and pounced the paint on. Some times if you try to brush the paint on burlap, it pulls at the fibers and creates strings.

Continue painting the rest of the burlap in the candy corn colors. 
I left a small border around the the edge of the candy corn instead of painting the whole thing.

Next I used black paint to outline the candy corn to give it a little more definition. 
burlap candy corn- trick or treat
 I then chose to write trick or treat on the candy corn with paint but this is totally optional. 
You can leave it plain or add something different if you’d like.  
burlap candy corn- glueing
Once your paint is dry, it is time to glue your two pieces of burlap together. Glue around the entire outside edge leaving a small hole so you can add some batting to stuff it (same process as sewing a pillow).

Also, while you glue, glue a ribbon between the two pieces of burlap so you can hang your candy corn.
burlap candy corn- stuffing
Next, grab some batting and stuff your candy corn.

Once you’ve stuffed your candy corn to your liking, just glue the hole closed.

And it is done! Find a fun place to hang it, on an old shutter, on your door, where ever! Fun little easy decoration and great way to greet those little ghosts and goblins on Halloween night!
