*Candy Corn Wreath*


 I have been seeing all of these wreath ideas for Halloween and I wanted to make my own version. At first I wanted to make something very scary but decided against it because I wanted color on my wreath. I saw pictures of the candy corn wreaths yet I did not want the actual candy glued on. So I figured I would use yellow, white and orange yarn and make my own candy corn wreath. Making this did not take long at all and I love the end result!

Instead of gluing, I used pins to stick the yarn into the wreath. It worked wonderful and the yarn did not budge as I was wrapping it.

I alternated between colors and this is how it looked after I was done wrapping the yarn

I could have left it just like this but I wanted a little something extra to give it character

At Michael’s, they had wooden Halloween creatures for $0.99 so I bought three to apply to the wreath

The Happy Halloween sign has blue trim which would not go with the candy corn theme so I took my acrylic black paint and covered the blue

Using my hot glue gun, I applied the wooden characters to the wreath and pressed firmly

I then tied a yellow ribbon around the wreath to hang. I inserted an orange flower but not sure if I like it with or without
