Favorite Candy Corn Crafts for Halloween – and a sweet little giveaway

I just might need a candy corn intervention! After I posted the Candy Corn Eggs & Minis earlier this week, I thought about all of the colorful, candy corn crafts I’ve shared through the years. And there have been a lot! So, I’ve gathered them all together in this post for a colorful, DIY Candy Corn Craft round up. Paint glitter, paper, fabric, paper clay, ribbon, it’s all here – except for the carbs and the calories! And I have a fun, mini giveaway, too, in celebration of this colorful, iconic, Halloween candy.

  13. Robyn Gist says:

    I made a tiny 6 inch pine tree for Christmas into a Halloween tree. Used a lot of Halloween miniatures, jack-o-lantern bells, tiny polymer clay owls to decorate it. It has mini orange tinsel garland and even added miniature battery operated string of lights. Filled it all in with orange, yellow, and purple pom-poms. Topped it off with an old scarecrow lapel pin I’ve had for years. It turned out cute and was fun to make.

    I’ve been crafting a lot of indoor and outdoor Halloween decor. I try to come up with new things each year. We don’t have a lot of money this year, so I’ve been using Dollar Tree items and trying to adjust/combine them to make something unique and spooky.

  19. Pat says:

    I love the Glittered Candy Corn Garland! Glitter = GOOD! Right now, I’m sewing costumes for a Haunted Ghost Train. When I finish that, I’ll be making some Halloween wreathes. I see a Candy Corn wreath in the near future… Thanks for all the great ideas! You’re better than Pinterest!!

  22. Angie Dyer says:

    Love all the candy corn great ideas! I have a very simple Halloween craft. I am saving tin cans that fruits and veggies come in. Safety tip: when opening the cans with a can opener, make certain that it leaves the smooth edges, not sharp ones. Remove the label and wash well. My hubby will poke 2 holes near the top of the can across from each other. I paint the outsides of the can orange. Let dry. I then place a piece of either wire or ribbon in the two holes for a handle. Add a pumpkin face with black paint. Or tie raffia for a cute bow. These are very inexpensive. I think they are cute as can be. Everyone adores them. You have the very best ideas, Sharon!

    • Sharon says:

      How adorable! I think YOU have the best ideas, Angie, and thank you for always taking the time to share with us. Now, you know what I would do with those cans, right? Paint them to look like candy corn! Enjoy, Angie! Sharon

  23. Lorrie Koenig says:

    I am getting ready for craft show season and plan to make a couple Halloween wreaths and a couple spooky centerpieces…may light up as well.
    Fall is my favorite time of year.
    Thanks for all the great inspiration.

  24. CraftyMom says:

    I am participating in my organizations Trunk or Treat this year and I will be featuring a very spectacular Nightmare Before Christmas scene.

  25. Becca Christensen says:

    Halloween is my all time favorite holiday!! I am going to make the candy corn topiary, the wreath and help my sister with 4 costumes for her kids.

  26. Kathy Ferguson says:

  35. My favorites are the Ruffled Candy Corn Wreath and the Punched Fabric Candy Corn Cone!!
