Burlap Candy Corn Decoration

3 Materials
1 Hour

Here is a cute last minute candy corn decoration you can make for the Fall. All you're going to need for this project is wire, burlap, and paint!

Before the season gets away from us I've got a quick, inexpensive candy corn project for you...

I began with a piece of rebar wire that I shaped into a large candy corn. 

Next, I grabbed a piece of burlap.

I hot glued the wire to the burlap, be careful not to burn your fingers on this one!

After gluing, I cut the burlap about 1/4" around the edge of the wire.

I folded the burlap around the back of the wire and glued it down.

At this point you may want to add a ribbon to cover the raw edge of the burlap.

I attached the ribbon after I painted the candy corn.

Now all that is left to do is to paint my burlap shape like a candy corn.

I just eyeballed a straight line and painted 2 coats of each color onto the burlap.

I painted 3 wooden beads with white, orange and yellow as well and added them to a ribbon to hang the candy corn.

On the bottom of the candy corn I made a tassel using orange jute twine and attached it with hot glue.

This cute candy corn can be added to a wreath or hung by itself on the door!

I decided to hang it from my very fancy Fall decorated mailbox, it holds up to the elements very well!
