I saw this wreath idea in a magazine and I liked how it looked and it seemed simple enough for me to try (sorry I can't remember which magazine, I just tear the pages I like out and keep those in my project binder)!
I love how it turned out and it was easy to do!!!
I got the wreath for $4 from Hobby Lobby
(ignore the balls, they are for another project... stayed tuned for that ;)
The magazine had you wrap the wreath in black duck tape, but I didn't have any of that so instead I used some black spray paint I had on hand.
Then I set myself up at the kitchen table (with Season 1 of Mad Men on Netflix) and got to gluing.
I laid the candy corn out in a couple of different patterns before I picked the one I liked best and actually started gluing.
The top layer done!
It took me 2 bags of candy corn to fill the top and sides and they cost me $1.50/bag. I was considering spraying a clear coat on to help preserve the wreath for longer, but when I tested it with a couple of extra candy corn, they just melted - so I would not recommend doing that step. :)
Then I just added some black ribbon and I was done! Again, I love how it turned out and it was pretty fun/relaxing to make. Perfect timing too, because the weather definately says "fall" today!
