Candy Corn is iconic for fall! Everyone has a strong opinion about it (love it, or maybe not so much), but one thing we can all agree on it is that it is SUPER CUTE for CRAFTING! Yea for a Candy Corn Craft! I thought it would be fun to try to make a candy bracelet out of it – and it worked! So then of course we needed matching earrings 😉 . I have all the how-to tutorial details for you today.
Candy Corn Craft Tutorial
Candy Corn 😉
Stretch Magic (for the bracelet)
Hoop blanks (for the earrings)
Drill, small drill bit
Clear Mod Podge if sealing the earrings
Drilling Candy Corn
Whether you are making the bracelet or the earrings, you’ll need to drill holes in the Candy Corn – this does take patience! I found that it worked best to set the drill up and then hold the candy corn as you drill through it. Let the drill dig out the hole instead of trying to push the candy corn onto the drill bit. Know that some will break – it’s ok! My kiddos were right there hoping for the broken ones so they could snatch them up for snacking, ha!
For the earrings, I placed the hole about 1/3 the way down from the point of the candy corn. For the bracelet, I placed the hole in the middle of the candy corn.
Candy Corn Earrings
After drilling Candy Corn that is about the same size/shape, you’re ready to assemble your earrings.
You’ll want to spray those candy corn with a coat of sealer to protect them from getting wet and/or sticky.
Next simply thread the candy corn onto the open hoop. With the hole being closer to the top of the candy corn, it allows the thicker bottom of the candy to fit nicely.
Voila! That’s all there is to it! way fun!! you might want to make a couple of extra candy corn with holes in case you need to swap out for any that may break. We haven’t had one break yet, but you never know.
Candy Corn Bracelet
Next up, the bracelet!! I wanted to treat this one as you would a candy necklace, where you can eat the candy from it. Because of that, I DID NOT spray the candy with a sealer.
Line up your candies in similar size/shape, alternating up and down, as shown:
Using the Stretch Magic cording, thread the candy corn onto the cording.
Keep threading them on until you have enough to go all the way around the wrist.
Tie the ends of the stretch magic according to the package instructions (tie in a square knot and then tie another knot on top of that, pulling tight each time).
Wear and enjoy!
