Martha Stewart for Halloween

A few months ago I saw something in a magazine I knew I needed to try (and forgive me for now but I forget which magazine it was in- I get a bunchI dont know) A CANDY CORN WREATH! It worked out that I was in need of a Halloween wreath, because the pumpkin I hang by the door just was not cutting it anymore, and I knew this wreath would be perfect (especially when candy corn went on sale for $1). A few weeks ago I got my wreath at the fabric store and painted it with black paint (the magazine said to use black tape but I liked this idea better).

So here I was all ready to go. Basically you just hot glue the candy corn onto the wreath. I did one row along the top for spacing then glued those and just grabbed corn and went for the rest of it. You place the corn in a tip to bottom pattern then switch the direction as you add each layer going out.

When I was finished I added some black ribbon and here is my wreath!

This was so simple and I really love it! So now that you know what I did on Halloween, how about you?
