Anyone who knows me, knows I love Halloween. Â Some may even say I <heart> it. Â That’s about as far as you’ll get me using teenage internet lingo for the day… Â I mean, I even convinced My Main Squeeze to dress up as a Garden Gnome for Halloween a few years ago. Â THAT’S how much I <heart> Halloween. Â He’s so good to me.
Uh oh. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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. Â Jokes. Â Just hold it as long as it needs to stay down on it’s own. Â Shouldn’t take long because, you know, you’re using glue. Â You can also use the glue sparingly in between sections as you feel you need it. Â Be careful using too much hot glue. Â For 1) OUCH! and 2) you can melt the foam if you use too much in one place. Â 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. Â And while I may lead them to believe it takes hours and Martha Stewart talent. Â 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!
