Candy Corn Banner

Candy Corn Burlap Banner

So you know about my love affair with candy corn. Has there ever been a cuter candy?  I don’t think so!

A few weeks ago my friend Meg and I got together to get a little crafty.  Look at the cute candy corn banner we made!

Candy Corn

The candy corn are cut out of natural color burlap (burlap now comes in all kinds of fun colors).  We used acrylic paint and a sponge brush to paint on the yellow, orange and white paint.

I used some jute twine to string them all together.

I then added a little orange and yellow ribbon I had in my Halloween ribbon stash.  Yes, I even had ribbon with candy corn on it – are you surprised!?

The banner cost next to nothing to make since burlap is so inexpensive – just a couple dollars a yard!

We cut out a candy corn template from some thin cardboard and using a pencil traced the shape onto the burlap.  The individual candy corn measures about 7 inches across at the top and is about 9 inches tall.

Candy corn just makes me smile!

    Jessica, The earrings are darling. Thanks for sharing the link. I totally agree with you about the Halloween decorating – don’t do the scary or gory stuff either. Do love the cute and whimsical though!

    How funny that you posted this today! I was debating whether or not to de-lurk to tell you I found Candy corn flavored Dots today at the grocery store! Haven’t tasted them yet but they look cute :)

    I love your banner. I just saw the CUTEST candy corn banner on Martha Stewart yesterday. It is made from foam cones that you sand down to the shape of candy corn than paint. Look it up. You will love it. We are having our annual halloween party much of our food table is coming from all your fun Halloween treats.

    It’s Divine paint from Miller Paint and it is called Shore but I know they have renamed it since I bought it. Miller Paint should be able to tell you the new name.

    Oh my gosh! I made this Wednesday morning before a youth event at our home that night. Everyone loved it! Soooo easy to do! The hardest part of the whole project was waiting for the paint to dry! Thanks so much Leigh Anne for such a cute and sweet idea!
