Candy Corn Crafts Week: Make a Punched Fabric Candy Corn

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.

Halloween craft stash buster -- use your fabric scraps and make this Candy Corn Cone.

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
Candy Corn Fabric craft!

You can use solids, prints, or mix and match for your Candy Corn Cone. You can also use brown fabric instead of yellow and make a chocolate Candy Corn Cone.

To make a Punched Fabric Candy Corn:

  1. Cut fabric into 2” squares. Optional: If you have a rotary cutter and cutting mat, you’ll whip right through this step.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
So cute for Halloween, and this Candy Corn Cone uses up your fabric scraps, too.

This is an easy technique — great for a night of movie watching, or one that the kids can DIY, too.

I hope you have a few fabric scraps left for tomorrow’s Candy Corn Craft . . .

    Would also be cute in a wreath for autumn too!

      Great idea, Angie. You could perch this Candy Corn Cone in the center of the wreath, nestled in the bottom. That would be so pretty! Let me know if you DIY it. Craft on! Sharon

    Very cute!

  8. I absolutely love this one!!! Only problem is, I can’t remember which box in my basement holds my fabric scraps!!! There are only around 125-150 boxes to look through!! Maybe I can convince hubby he needs to find something in the boxes and I can ask him to let me know if he sees my fabric while he is looking!! I think I just might do that!! LOL TFS!
