A Crafty, Corny Halloween Round Up: A Sweet Celebration of Candy Corn Crafts

Since featuring our Flat Stanley Candy Corn earlier this week, I’ve been poking around online and have found a collection of candy corn crafts for Halloween. I wanted to share these fun Halloween crafts, especially because most of them are fast and easy crafts. In fact, I’ll bet you have a lot of the materials already on hand – yarn, ribbon, tissue paper and scrapbook paper.

First up are the Candy Corn Cone Topiaries I shared on the blog Under the Table and Dreaming (it was my first guest post on another blog, gulp). Stephanie Lynn has a beautiful blog, and I was thrilled that she included my project. Be sure to check it out, and the beautiful photography Stephanie Lynn shares on her blog, too.

Patty Schaffer is one of my favorite designers, and I always like to see what’s new on her blog Capture the Details. Last year, Patty made a handful of sweet, yarn-wrapped candy corn. They’re not hard to make, and she explains how to do it.

How sweet is this mini candy corn?

On her blog Capture the Details, Patty explains how to turn 3″ foam cones into yarn-wrapped candy corn.

For those with a really big sweet tooth, I found this super-sized version of Patty’s on the blog Thrifty Décor Chick. Sarah shares her tutorial to make Candy Corn Love and a candy corn wreath, too.

For a variation of the yarn-wrapped candy corn, check out Agape Love Designs for her technique.  Maria-Isabel wrapped her foam cones with ribbon to make Ribbon Candy Corn.

I love that most paper crafts are inexpensive, and this one is no exception. Emily at Crafting up my World used a 1” paper punch to punch out the yellow, orange and white circles, and then glued them on a foam ball to make her Candy Corn Topiaries. If you’re looking for a TV craft, this is it!

Tucking squares of fabric into STYROFOAM Brand Foam has been popular for eons (have you ever made a craft using this technique?). Andrea of Oasis Accents used a variation of this technique to make her Tissue Paper Candy Corn. And the price tag for these sweeties? Just $2 each!

And now, the grand finale – the Candy Corn Starburst Wreath. What’s not to love about this wreath – it’s cheerful, welcoming and a lot of fun. Kimberly of the blog Bugaboo Mini, Mr. and Me has a detailed tutorial for it (and a fun blog, too) and she’ll walk you through the steps. I would love to have this hanging on my door!

Hello, candy corn! This is one sweet welcome wreath and Kimberly shows how to make it.

Do your teeth hurt yet? Nothing says “Happy Halloween” like candy corn, don’t you agree? Now, here is my question of the day – what is the plural form of candy corn? Candy corns?

Happy crafting!
