Candy Corn Decoration...


Today was a good day. I found the lovely dutch oven I have been wanted for a steal at TJMAXX, and I got all kinds of fun stuff at the dollar store for our pumpkin decorating party we are going to have...While at the dollar store I decided I also wanted to make a candy corn craft, so I bought one Styrofoam ball, two bags of candy corn, and a tinsel spider.....

Later this evening I hot glued candy corn to the ball. It went pretty fast, but my goodness... that ball weighs a good 5lbs when all is said and done.... I shoved the ball on a wood dowel that I painted Orange, and then put it through the tinsel spider, (the head part of it is Styrofoam as well) and then shoved the whole thing into a Styrofoam block and put it all in a basket. I added some black tulle to hide the Styrofoam. I think it's fun, and the girls think it's really cool looking.
