Candy Corn

After Owen's party I have a TON of candy corn leftover. I had bought a bunch thinking I would use more in the table centerpieces, but I ended up going with the pumpkin candies instead. So the result? A couple of huge bags filled with candy corn that I have to tell myself I just should not eat (really, it will make me sick)...repeat to myself so that I believe it....

While in all honesty I will likely end up just tossing the candy, here's a cute idea if I got the crafting urge in this last week of pregnancy. A candy corn wreath! Super cute, right? Fun to dress up an interior door.

All you need is a styrofoam wreath form, black duck tape, ribbon a glue gun, and of course candy corn! Find full directions here.

With candy corn on the brain I wanted to check out some other fun candy corn projects. Here are a few from Etsy...

Having a Halloween party this week? Print Your Party has a printable candy corn favor treat bag. Fun and easy!

Or feeling more ambitious? Here's a pattern to make your very own candy corn knit hat for baby from Sugar Lane. Awwww, now that's pretty cute. Especially for a baby who doesn't really need to be dressed up on the big night out. A cozy outfit and this hat would be perfect!

This weekend I was over at a friend's house and we were discussing the upcoming Halloween festivities. We're heading to their house for a little get together followed by trick or treating (assuming I'm not in the hospital that is)! But anyway, she mentioned making Candy Corn Pizza. First thought, yucko. And then she explained it's just made to look like candy corn with the cheese. Cute idea! A quick google search pulled up this recipe from Taste Buds.

And how about these for dessert? I don't think I in the bakers world that could attempt macaroons (I hear they are notoriously difficult to make), but I sure do love to eat them and thought these were super cute. From Barbara Bakes.

Hope you enjoyed this candy corn overload! Happy Monday!
