I have a stash busting Candy Corn Craft today. It uses a favorite technique in which you punch a square of fabric into your foam shape. You’ve seen this technique used to make Christmas ornaments, like the Peppermint Stripe Christmas Ornament, right? (We also used this technique for the Ice Cream Cone Door Decor and Patriotic Bandanna Wreath.) Patty Schaffer used this punched fabric technique to make her Punched Fabric Candy Corn Cone. Isn’t it pretty? Patty used the same fabrics for each section, but you can mix and match, too, and use up some of your fabric scraps.
To make a Punched Fabric Candy Corn, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 9” cone (or other size of your choice)
- Fabric: ¼ yd each white, yellow and orange
- Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; bamboo skewer; optional: rotary cutter and cutting mat
To make a Punched Fabric Candy Corn:
- Cut fabric into 2” squares. Optional: If you have a rotary cutter and cutting mat, you’ll whip right through this step.
- Place a yellow fabric square on lower portion of the foam cone, and position the bamboo skewer in the middle of the fabric square. Push the fabric into the foam cone.
- Repeat, punching in your yellow fabric squares till you’ve filled in the lower third of the cone. Continue filling in the orange and white sections in the same manner.
I hope you have a few fabric scraps left for tomorrow’s Candy Corn Craft . . .
Happy Candy Corn Crafting!
