Candy Corn Wreath
Autumn is officially here in Pennsylvania! That means it's time to start to get ready for HALLOWEEN! I just love, love, love Halloween! I've started to bring out my Halloween and Fall decorations from storage. For me it is a two step decorating process; I decorate for Halloween as well as putting out a few items that are a general Fall theme; I leave those general items out until the day after Thanksgiving (November 22 this year) and then switch the others on November 1st, the day after Halloween.
I decided to take a page from my Easter decorating and attempt to make a wreath out of some type of candy. I picked candy corn to be my choice of edible goodness to highlight. I purchased a 16 inch Styrofoam wreath from Michael's (using a coupon, of course) and used Duck tape this time to cover the form versus ribbon. I love the way the Duck tape turned out and it was super easy to cover (and much less expensive than ribbon).
Thought I'd share with you the view I had making my wreath! This is Piper, my 7 year old Yorkie and my crafting buddy.
