{How to Make Candy Corn Decor}

Perfect for fall, this candy corn craft is a super cute and simple decor idea that makes its debut in time for Halloween! That’s right. October doesn’t have to be the only month you display this yarn-wrapped styrofoam craft, but it may only take you about 30 minutes to make this giant candy corn yarn centerpiece in time for an All Hallows’ Eve party!

While I bet you could figure out how to make these candy corn yarn cones without instructions, below is the list of supplies and instructions.

SUPPLIES:

Styrofoam cone(s) – can find them at Dollar Tree
Yarn in white, orange and yellow – thick yarn recommended if crafting with kids
Spray adhesive or hot glue/glue gun
HOW-TO:

Wrap three different colors of yarn around a foam cone stopping at the break points you establish.
Hot glue the ends of the yarn to secure each section OR use spray adhesive on the cone to secure the yarn before wrapping OR tuck the yarn tails in and keep wrapping sans adhesive.
For the tip of the cone, make a spiral circle of yarn and hot glue it to the top or use spray adhesive.
OPTIONS FOR FINISHING TOUCHES:

Nestle the faux giant candy corn in actual candy corns in a low-edge bowl (pictured) or in a glass hurricane. – OR –
Spray paint glass candlestick holders (from the dollar store) either black or white and adhere your candy corn craft on top! – OR –
Take a chopstick/cookie stick and push it through the bottom of the base and insert your candy-corn-on-a-stick into a small terra cotta pot, then fill the pot with faux moss.
And there you have it: a spooktacular DIY Halloween decoration! Whether you make it large or small or with a white button on top, this corn’s sure to be cream of the crop! [Sorry, a little corn humor there. Had to be a little corny for this post.]

My Toddler’s The Lorax Inspired Birthday Party

When I started pulling the elements together for my toddler’s Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax inspired birthday party, I knew that I wanted to focus in on The Lorax’s theme around the environment. Therefore, I used a bunch of natural elements such as bamboo plates, serving bowls, spoons and matching serving tray, slices of birch trunks, faux grass/moss and real plants, fallen tree branches, and upcycled glass bottles. And any party supplies that I didn’t reuse in the process of this party will be reused in the future!

I had so much fun planning for this party, but I learned something about myself in the process this time…I realized during my party planning this time is that one of my favorite parts of party prep is the curation of ideas! To check out all of my inspiration, here is a link to my Pinterest board entitled, {“Oh, the Places He’ll Go!”}

The Lorax theme for this party actually evolved from my search on the world-renowned Dr. Seuss book; in fact, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an adaptation of Oh, The Places You’ll Go. To quote a blog post I referenced when learning about the story and movie background, “Although the story was written back in the seventies, it is still on time…[it] is spreading [a] sadly very true ecological message and warning […]
