Whether you make a candy corn wreath, or a wreath for the winter season, they are a decoration that is used all year.
We change them for each season and holiday and use them for almost any occasion. You can say that decorated wreaths have gone mainstream. We use a vast array of elements to create a mood for the occasion.
Making a candy corn wreath with your children is fun and it's a great craft project that can be embellished with your own special style.
Start With A Form -- Styrofoam, Grapevine . . .
There are several commercial wreath forms you can use to create your wreath, and for the most part, they are all very affordable.
There are natural materials such as boughs, tree branches and grapevine. These are good choices for an outdoor wreath.
Other wreath forms made from wire, styrofoam, or straw can be found in your local craft store. Choose the form that you will be comfortable using.
TIPS:#1. Check out your local "dollar" or "99 cent" store when shopping for craft materials. You may find them for a lot less than the craft store.
#2. Lay out the candy corn on a large cookie sheet and let it dry out for 24 hours. This will remove the moisture from the candy so the wreath will not become sticky.
This candy corn wreath is a fun craft project that you can do with your children. We used a hot glue gun so if your children are young, you can have them separate the candy and arrange them in rows for you to glue onto the form.
Materials You Will Need
10 inch wreath form
3 to 4 bags of candy corn
hot glue gun
5 or 6 Halloween foamie shapes (optional)
Halloween ribbon (for extra decoration)
poly sealer spray or mod podge
Safety Note: Give the children the "special task" of sorting out the candy and handing you each piece since you will be using hot glue. They will be thrilled!|
#1. Open the bags of candy and have the children make sure all of the candy corn are basically the same size. Then ask them to make 2 piles of corn. Each pile should have the corn facing in the opposite direction.
#2. Dab a bit of hot glue to the styrofoam and place one piece of candy corn on it. Continue the process placing each piece of candy corn in opposite directions.
Try to work in straight rows covering the entire form. You can make a second layer which will cover any spaces. You'll need to be careful moving the wreath.
#3. For the finishing take the wreath outdoors and spray the wreath with a sealer. Leave outside until dry. This will also help to keep the candy corn stabilized on the form.
#4. Attach the Halloween foamie shapes to a toothpick and place them at random into the wreath. Then add the ribbon.
Your wreath is ready to be displayed indoors.
