Anyone who knows me, knows I love Halloween. Some may even say I <heart> it. That’s about as far as you’ll get me using teenage internet lingo for the day… I mean, I even convinced My Main Squeeze to dress up as a Garden Gnome for Halloween a few years ago. THAT’S how much I <heart> Halloween. He’s so good to me.
Uh oh. I did the <heart> thing again.
So last Halloween, when I saw how easy this project was, I immediately headed to Joann Fabrics and scooped up the few materials I would need to put my own spin on the project. This is a very easy project and even kid friendly. (If they are old enough to use a glue gun…no lawsuits here!)
How to make Halloween Candy Corn Decorations
This is what you’ll need:
Styrofoam or foam cones
Hot glue gun
Start at the base of the cone and work your way up with the varying yarn colors. Use the glue gun at the start and end of each new color of yarn by holding it down until you can’t feel the tip of your finger anymore. Jokes. Just hold it as long as it needs to stay down on it’s own. Shouldn’t take long because, you know, you’re using glue. You can also use the glue sparingly in between sections as you feel you need it. Be careful using too much hot glue. For 1) OUCH! and 2) you can melt the foam if you use too much in one place. When you get to the top of the cone (if it is a flat-topped cone), just swirl the yarn around in a flat circle so it covers the top completely.
People think I’ve spent sooooooooo much time on making these when they see them. And while I may lead them to believe it takes hours and Martha Stewart talent. It doesn’t.
If you do this project, I would love to know or any of your Halloween projects for that matter! Let me know if you have any questions!
