I really love when I can make my own home decor. Not only does it save me money, but also gives me a sense of accomplishment that I made those pretty things myself! Seasonal decor is a ton of fun to make, because there’s so many possibilities. I really enjoyed making these Candy Corn Fall Decor pieces!
What’s great about these Candy Corn Fall Decor pieces is that they don’t take any skill or a lot of brain power, so I can do it when I’ve got an extra ten minutes and they turn out great! You can make these in any color combination, but I kept with the classic candy corn white, orange, and yellow. Didn’t they turn out cute?
Other cute fall decorating ideas:
Hot Glue Gun
To begin, glue a line of hot glue around the bottom of your cone. Wrap a strand of yellow yarn (without cutting it) around the glue and let it dry before continuing. After it’s dry, just start wrapping the yellow yarn along the bottom third of the cone. You don’t need to keep the strands straight, or line them up, just wrap around and around, and overlap the other stands.
Once it looks like this, then glue the yarn down at the top of the yellow portion. Wait for it to dry, and the snip the yarn.
Glue down about an inch of the end of the orange yarn right above the yellow yarn. Allow to dry and then wrap in the same way. Repeat to add white to the top.
The white is a little trickier because of the tip of the cone. Just keep your wrap slow and tight when you get near the tip of the cone, so keep the yarn from slipping off. Use plenty of hot glue to hold down the end of the white yarn when you’re finished. If you want extra reinforcement as you’re wrapping, just put some glue on the tip of the cone, wrap some of the yarn, and then let it dry before you continue wrapping again. This will make sure if you bump it while wrapping, that it won’t come unraveled.
Once you do one of these Candy Corn Fall Decor they will be a breeze to keep doing! They’re cute in multiple sizes and even in different colors!
