{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.


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

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.

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 Former Master Bedroom Retreat}

While I continue to wait in anticipatory delight for my next haven, I thought I’d give you a tour of my prior master bedroom sanctuary! Along with showcasing our DIY projects, below I share pictures as well as where I purchased some of the items. Down the road I’ll share the instructions for making {My Faux DIY Floating Shelf} that my husband built and stained to match the headboard as well as {My DIY Aluminum Lanterns} shown on the side table next to the chevron slipper chair below. And if you haven’t seen {My Geometric Print DIY Canvas Wall Art} project, it’s not to late!
