Candy Corn Crafts Week starts today with a Candy Corn Wreath

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! Published in Halloween Tricks & Treats.

It’s the iconic Candy Corn Wreath, don’t you think?

I love this Halloween magazine! It's packed with great ideas for parties and for the house, too. Look for it on newsstands.

Look for the magazine on newsstands now! And I’m giving away five copies, too.

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.

How NOT to make a Candy Corn Wreath!

Don’t do what I did and use a water-based adhesive for your Candy Corn Wreath. I was making fast progress on my wreath, till the water-based glue started to melt the candy corn. Try a low-temp glue gun instead.

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.

    Okay, well, obviously it works now.
    I wonder why I couldn’t comment as I usually do, but had to log into my account. So strange…

    Anyway, hi Sharon!

    Greetings from Germany,

    • Sharon says:

      Hi Birgit, I did see one comment from you last week, did you leave more? I hope I didn’t miss any. Arch, tech can be baffling! I hope you’ll be back for your Halloween fix! Happy crafting, Sharon

  2. Donna Baker says:

    Thanks for sharing all these great ideas.

  3. Diane Adams says:

    Fall, harvest and candy corns all go together as far as I am concerned. I love everything in candy corn colors and have found your ideas SPECTACULAR!!!

  4. Judy D. says:

    I will certainly remember to get out the glue gun. And still not melt the candy corn 😝 The magazine wreath gave me the idea to use pizza shaped Styrofoam pieces. The folk art was great.

    • Sharon says:

      🙂 Lessons learned, right? You could absolutely cut a sheet of STYROFOAM Brand Foam into wedges for your candy corn — sort of like the Glittered Candy Corn. My wheels are turning now, thanks for the idea! Happy crafting! Sharon

  5. Jessica Weyrowske says:

    Love both of these wreaths – even if yours didn’t turn out quite as expected the first time around, I’ve certainly been there before! Always looking for new fun ideas to use at my kids’ classroom Halloween parties and this blog is my favorite place to look 🙂

  6. Sar Tann says:

    Cute, Cute and cute!!! These projects are so charming, they make me love candy corn even more. 🙂

  7. Alissa says:

    What a cool idea to make a candy corn wreath! I think we all have been there at one point in time when things have melted using candy. The paper alternative is what I will be trying.

  8. LisaM6 says:

    What fun. Love these. I even bought some candy corns.. the kids ate them all. 😦
    Great ideas.

    • Sharon says:

      ‘Tis the season for a sugar rush, isn’t it? I guess you need a secret little stash just for yourself :-). Thanks for stopping in, and see you again soon. Sharon

  9. Donna O'Neil says:

    I love that super sized candy corn wreath! I don’t think my door is big enough for it, though. Those duck tape topiaries are right up our alley!

    • Sharon says:

      I know you and your daughter love a good duct tape craft. Check out the Candy Corn Cuties, too — so fun and easy. I’ve planned a few more duct tape Halloween crafts for later in October . . . Happy crafting, Donna. Sharon

  10. Donna Baker says:

    The candy corn wreath would be hard for me to make because I would probably eat the candy corn.

  11. Sally says:

    I cant wait to try this Halloween is the best I love thanksgiving and Christmas cant wait to see what is next

    • Sharon says:

      I’m with you — Halloween is the best time to craft! What are you planning to craft for Halloween? Maybe you’ll be inspired this week! Thanks for stopping in. Sharon

  12. These are all so cool! I absolutely love candy corn so I couldn’t make anything with the real candy corn because I would eat it all up before I had time to actually use it!! LOL I really love the Duct Tape Candy Corn Topiary and the Glittered Candy Corn!! I am going to have to get a few pots so I can try the topiaries!! Thanks for the inspiration!! That magazine looks AWESOME!! Fingers crossed!
