It’s Candy Corn Crafts week on Crafts ‘n Coffee. It’s the annual week of sweet & colorful Halloween crafts with a candy corn theme. The Candy Corn Wreath I was going to share today was a total fail, yikes! But, the good news is that Patty Schaffer just had a beautiful Candy Corn Wreath published in the magazine Halloween Tricks & Treats. I have five extra copies of this frighteningly fun magazine that I’m giving away, too. First, here’s Patty’s Candy Corn Wreath.
It’s the iconic Candy Corn Wreath, don’t you think?
You can look for this issue on newsstands or read on for your chance to win one of the five copies I’m giving away.
My Candy Corn Wreath is a lesson learned in using the right adhesive. Once I finished the top of the wreath, I thought it looked great and I was moving right along. Then, as I started to cover the sides, the glue never set up and it started to soften on top as the candy melted. Lesson learned – do not use a water based glue for candy! The weather was hot and humid that week, too, which I’m sure that aggravated the situation.
I wish I’d used a low-temp glue gun instead of a water-based glue. I ran out of time to make a second wreath, so I can’t report back on whether or not the low-temp glue would have held up better. If you want to try making this Candy Corn Wreath, I would encourage you to test the technique and adhesive first. If you’ve had any experience with making a Candy Corn Wreath, please let me know how you made yours.
In the meantime, here are some of the more successful Candy Corn Crafts featured on Crafts ‘n Coffee.
If you’d like a chance to win the magazine Halloween Tricks & Treats, leave a comment every day this week, Monday through Friday. I’ll choose five names at random from those who left daily comments on Monday, September 28, and announce the winners on Tuesday, September 29. You have till midnight on Sunday, September 27, to leave your comments.
I’ll have a new Candy Corn Craft everyday this week, and I hope you’ll follow along.
Happy Candy Corn Crafting!
