A few weeks ago I began to wonder if it was possible to thread candy corn like popcorn garland. I did some research online and saw that it has been done. I set my sights on making a bitchin' Halloween wreath.
With a grapevine wreath, spooky ribbon, candy corn, a witch ornament, and spiders from the dollar store, I created this:
Pretty dang spooky, huh?
If you want to make candy corn garland, my advice to you is:
Buy the candy corn from the dollar store. It was twice as much in the grocery store.
Open the bag and let the candy corn sit overnight to harden.
Using a small needle, work it like a corkscrew through the candy corn, just below the white portion.
Buy a little bit more than you need because they will break in half sometimes. (My wreath required two 11 oz. bags of candy corn--I bought seven bags. Ooops.)
Spray clear glaze to keep the candy corn from getting too sticky and to keep bugs away after it is threaded. (Be careful if there are kids around... you don't want them trying to eat it after you spray it, obviously.)
