Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for my quarterly food craft! I’m not crafty very often, but when I am…I like to use candy as my medium of choice. I mean, I can’t feel guilty about eating 32,000 candy corns before the second week of September has even started if it’s for a CRAFT, right?! This DIY Candy Corn wreath was *so* easy to make, I feel like I should make another one just because I can.
Here’s everything I used to make it:
- Two bags of candy corns (could have done it in one, but…I ate 32,000, remember?)
- Craft glue (I always use the trusty E6000) or a glue gun
- 12″ Craft Ring
- Ribbon (preferably with sparkles, because, SPARKLES)
- Not pictured: black paint to paint the craft ring
- Also not pictured: super cute little letters from Michael’s that spell “BOO” – bonus that they were less than $1 each! (leave these off for something you can hang all Fall long)
- Paint the craft ring black.
- Apply a liberal amount of glue to a small section of the craft ring and start sticking on candy corns (alternating which way they’re pointing). Leave one hole in the ring uncovered for the ribbon to hang your wreath.
- Let it dry.
- Glue on your letters.
- Let it dry.
- Add your ribbon through the hole, tie a bow, and hang!
I have not sprayed it with a varnish yet, but I probably will before storing it for next year. Also, I photographed it outside because it’s so darn cute against our black door, but it’s still pretty much blistering hot in Texas…I think this is better suited to the indoors. Also, I have no real bow-making skills to speak of, so I hide this by using sparkly ribbon and pretending I like a simple bow better anyway.
