Candy Corn 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!

    Absolutely positively adorable!!!!

    Did you cut the candy corns out first and then paint them? That seems to make the most sense. :-)

    Super cute! What a fun idea for decorating. I tend to ignore Halloween decorating because I don’t do scare/gory stuff. But this is cute – and it’s something I could totally do!
    Oh, I also wanted to share a link with you that I just found. I know you love candy corn and this is a tutorial for homemade candy corn earrings and necklace. Also really 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.
