Candy Corn Door Wreath

Hey all! Are you ready for Halloween? I'm not but we're getting there. Since I'm basically the worst blogger when it comes to holiday decorating and crafting I thought I would at least show you a few DIY things I have laying about.

This is a super cute door wreath {does it count as a wreath if it's not round?} that my mom made for me several years ago. I love it and even if I never get any other crafts up I always have this to welcome guests.

How it's made:

3 candy corn shapes are cut from wood using a jig saw. She painted each one to resemble a candy corn and wrote "Trick or Treat". For added dimension and cuteness she used a toothbrush dipped in black paint to flick little spots of black on the candy corn. They are then attached to a piece of rope using a staple gun {see 2nd to last picture for optimal hanging technique} and then added a raffia bow to the top.

Didn't she do a great job?!? I love it! Thanks momma!

P.S. Sorry about the crazy format of the post. It's what happens when I blog from my iPod. :)

Have a Creative Day!
❤, Alicia
