Zoulah's Candy Corn Wand Bouquet

 
 
 
Zoulah cackled loudly as she thought up this new craft for Halloween!  She loves candy corn, and she especially loves to craft with it.  This year, she decided to take the quintessential Halloween candy -- candy corn, and make some Candy Corn Wands.  She loves how the candy corn colors burn so brightly!  She loves how the spheres can be made up so quickly.  She loves that she can eat and craft at the same time!
 
 
Materials for Candy Corn Bouquet
 
Candy Corn -- 2 bags made the three wands
Hot Glue
Styrofoam Balls -- They came in a package of six)
Wooden Dowels -- You can find them at Wal-Mart in pack for $1.00)
Ribbon
 
Zoulah just placed a bit of hot glue on the end of the dowel and then inserted it in (about 1 inch) into the styrofoam ball.  She let it dry, then she began to glue candy corns on the styroforams in concentric circles.  After all the cany corns are glued on, then Zoulah tied on some cute ribbon, then placed the wands in a little pitcher.  She anchored them into the pitcher with a bit of oasis.
 
 
 
 
Then add some cute ribbon and arrange in a pitcher or container.
 
 
Zoulah promises you this bouquet will brighten any area.
 
Zoulah placed her wands in a little milk pitcher.
 
 
 
She thought all the candy corn looks great on the buffet.  Zoulah loves vibrant color!
 
Zoulah thanks you for dropping by Red Couch Recipes!

I love this idea. I could totally see doing it as a centerpiece too, but I think my daughters would prefer the wands.

I love that Zoulah is back! This is a great craft creation, it would make a great center piece too. I hope you don't mind, I mentioned you in my blog and included links to your blog from mine. Everyone needs to know about Zoulah! Can't wait to see what all she has in store for us this season ;-)

Joani said...

That is so cool. I'm afraid that the candy corn would not last long in my home cuz it is my most favorite candy. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

These are so awesome! This would've gone perfectly with the candy corn fairy skirt I just made for my daughter - she needs a wand. I may have to make her one of these :)

What a great pop of color! If only I could keep from eating the decor! My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
