By: Sarah Saucedo
- candy corn
- foam wreath
- black tape (alternatives: paper streamers, ribbon or fabric)
- hot glue gun
Wrap Wreath With Tape
Begin by wrapping the foam wreath with the black crepe paper (you can also use paper streamers, ribbon or fabric).
For the first row, lay the candies out to check spacing, and then glue them in place with the glue gun.
Glue, Glue, Glue
Continue to glue the candy corn onto the wreath until it is completely covered. The front can have as many as a few layers of candies while the sides will only have one. Hang the completed wreath from using the crepe paper.
