You know by now that Candy Corn Crafts are some of my favorite Halloween crafts! You’d think we’d be fresh out of ideas, right? Nope, today Patty Schaffer shares her Fluffy Fabric Candy Corn Door Hanger. It’s made with the same technique she used to make yesterday’s Punched Fabric Candy Corn Cone. So, get out your fabrics, cut extra squares, and whip up both! These Candy Corn are both so easy and so dang cute.
To make a Fluffy Fabric, Candy Corn Door Hanger, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 1” x 12” x 18” sheet or 1” x 12” x 36” (finished Candy Corn is 12” wide and 16” tall)
- Fabric: 1/3 yd. white and yellow; ½ yd. orange
- Ribbon, 1″ x 18″
- Thick, white craft glue
- Tools needed: Scissors; sharp pencil; ruler; serrated knife; bar of soap or old candle; optional: newspaper; straight pins; rotary cutter and cutting mat
To make a Fluffy Fabric, Candy Corn Door Hanger:
- Using the ruler and a sharp pencil, score your candy corn shape on the foam sheet. Or, draw your pattern on newspaper first and cut it out. Pin the pattern to the foam sheet, and trace around it with the sharp pencil.
- Wax your knife blade with an old candle or a bar of soap, and cut out the candy corn. Smooth uneven edges by sanding with a scrap piece of foam.
- 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 candy corn, and position the bamboo skewer in the middle of the fabric square. Push the fabric into the foam.
- Repeat, punching in your yellow fabric squares till you’ve filled in the lower third of the candy corn. Continue filling in the orange and white sections in the same manner.
6. Oops, we don’t show the hanger! You can pin and glue the 1″ ribbon to each side of the candy corn, and adjust the height as needed.
With today’s post, I had to update the graphic for our Candy Corn Door Hangers. You’ll now find four different ways to decorate your door for Halloween, with candy corn made from fabric, duct tape, paint and glitter.
I’ll have a new candy corn craft tomorrow to wrap up this year’s Candy Corn Crafts week. It’s one of my favorites! See you then.
Happy Candy Corn Crafting!
