Candy Corn Crafts week: DIY a Candy Corn Wreath

I’m a fan of duct tape crafts, so it was inevitable that Candy Corn Crafts week would include a Halloween Candy Corn Duct Tape Wreath. Last year, my Halloween Duct Tape Wreath had a spider theme. As a tribute to last year’s duct tape wreath, I added a glittered, purple spider to this year’s Halloween Candy Corn Duct Tape Wreath. If you’ve not yet been inspired to try a candy corn craft this week, I hope you’ll try this one. It’s super easy, and the colors will look so festive on your front door.

This is the best -- and easiest -- Candy Corn Halloween Wreath. Make it fast with duct tape.

To make a Halloween Candy Corn Duct Tape Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath
  • Duct tape, one roll each yellow, orange, and white (I used Duck Brand from Manco)
  • Construction paper or scrapbook paper in purple and white
  • Patterned ribbon, 3/8”
  • Glittered spider, purple
  • Chenille stem
  • Straight pins
  • Glue dots
  • Paper adhesive
  • Tools needed: Scissors; wire knippers; optional: die-cutting machine and alphabet dies
This fun wreath is part of Candy Corn Crafts week on This is best collection of Halloween candy corn crafts!

You can make this Duct Tape Candy Corn Wreath in about an hour.

To make a Halloween, Candy Corn Duct Tape Wreath:

1. Tear off a 36” or so length of yellow duct tape. Tear this strip into two strips, with one strip measuring about 1- 1/8” – 1-1/4” wide. (You don’t have to be precise.) Be careful your two strips don’t tangle, and carefully put aside the narrow strip for a future use (like the Halloween Duct Tape Deco Spheres).

2. Pin the wider duct tape strip to the back of the wreath and wrap the strip round & round the wreath, slightly overlapping with each pass. Pin the other end of the strip to the back of the wreath, and trim any extra tape. Repeat, wrapping about 1/3 of the wreath with the yellow duct tape.

3. Repeat Step 1 and Step 2, wrapping each side with orange duct tape.

4. Finish the top 1/3 of the wreath by wrapping in white duct tape.

A "candy corn" banner is the perfect way to decorate a Duct Tape Candy Corn Wreath.

I used purple scrapbook paper for the pennants, and die-cut the letters. You can also cut out the letters by hand using stencils.

5. Cut nine small pennant flags from purple paper. Cut the letters C, A, N, D, Y, C, O, R, and N from white paper. Use a die-cutting machine or cut the letters by hand. Glue one letter to each pennant using paper adhesive.

6. Cut two lengths of ribbon to string across the wreath. Pin and glue ribbon ends to the back.

7. Using glue dots, attach the pennants to the ribbon.

8. Glue the glittered spider to the wreath.

9. Twist together the ends of a 4” chenille stem. Insert and glue the twisted end into the back of the wreath for a hanger.

Woman’s Day has the “real” Candy Corn Wreath. I really love this wreath, too, though I’m not sure I’d find the time to make it.

    What a great wreath that is (even though candy corn is practically unknown here)! 🙂

    Most often, German front doors don’t have any decoration — different concept. 🙂

      Hi Birgit, great to see you today! You know how we “do up” Halloween in the states. You can craft up your own candy corn to celebrate. I guess Octoberfest is your fall fun, yes? Sharon

    Hanging on my door….nothing at the moment. To many yellowjackets hanging out there and a few real spiders. lol
    Oh yes, candy corn got bought and is hidden from the children only to handed out when they are good. The boys were not happy with mom yesterday.
