Candy Corn Crafts Week: DIY a sweet Candy Corn Wreath

Some days, I feel like I’m living in the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. After I made the Glittered Candy Corn, I had extra candy corn leftover and decided to DIY a Glittered Candy Corn Garland. After I made the Glittered Candy Corn Garland, I had fabric strips leftover and I couldn’t let them go to waste. And so, I made my Glittered Candy Corn Wreath. I really love it, and hope you do, too.

Cute Halloween wreath! Love the sparkling, glittered candy corn, too. DIY on CraftsnCoffee.com. To make a Glittered Candy Corn Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” x 18” x 1” sheet; 16” wreath
  • Scrap paper (for pattern)
  • Acrylic craft paints in orange, white and yellow
  • Glitter, crystalline
  • Fabrics, 5 – 7 assorted prints, ¼ yd each
  • Ribbon for hanging wreath
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; straight pins; sharp pencil; Exacto® knife; wood skewers; stiff paintbrushes, 1” and ½” wide; newspaper; optional: iron

To make a Glittered Candy Corn Wreath:

1. Follow the instructions for making Glittered Candy Corn. I used two candy corn on my wreath, but you could use as many as you like. You could even cover the entire wreath in glittered candy corn.

Glittering Candy Corn Wreath. Sweet! And there are so many other ways to decorate with these glittered candy corn, too. CraftsnCoffee.com. #NonScaryHalloween

Arrange as many glittered candy corn as you like on your wreath. You could even cover your wreath in glittered candy corn.

2. Tear your fabrics into 1” and 1-1/2” wide strips. If strips are too curled, press with an iron.

3. Wrap a fabric strip around the wreath, pinning and gluing the ends to the back of the wreath. Continue to wrap the wreath in fabric strips till it’s covered.

4. Position two glittered candy corn onto the wreath and glue in place.

5. Loop a length of ribbon through the wreath for hanging.

Love this colorful Halloween wreath! The glittered candy corn is so sweet. Tutorial on CraftsnCoffee.com.

These bright, sparkling colors really say “Happy Halloween” — in a non-scary way.

And that’s it! It’s an easy Halloween wreath. And I’m all about making it easy. Last year, I made a Duct Tape Candy Corn Wreath. While it’s a completely different style, it’s also a super-easy Halloween wreath to DIY.

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