Candy Corn Necklace

Today, I am sharing a quick and easy Halloween tutorial for making Candy Corn Necklaces! I shared this post at Blissful & Domestic last week.

Remember as a kid, when you would get those candy necklaces?  Personally, I thought they tasted gross.  With all the candy corn tutorials floating around the Web, I did my own take on this candy store classic.
Warning:  You will get sticky.  So don’t touch your DSLR camera with your sticky candy corn nubbins.  AND you will get a stomach ache from eating all the broken pieces.  =)
Here’s what you need:
Bag of candy corn
 Needle and thread
(Cute child model – optional)

Begin by measuring your little one’s head.  {I have ever mentioned that Reed has an exceptionally large cranium.}
Once measured, thread your needle.  I chose the tiniest needle I could out of my craft needle kit (the cross stitching one).
Carefully impale the candy morsel and pull the thread through the hole.

Repeat this step about 30 times.  {I didn’t make it a complete circle of candy corn because it was getting pretty heavy.}

Tie a knot at the end!
So easy and quick!  The whole project took me about 15 minutes!  
These would be great for a child’s Halloween party or an extra special Mommy treat on Halloween!

  3. This is such a cute idea, Jill!

  8. He’s totally going to eat that thing…I’m sure he already did actually!! Very cute idea!

  9. Just too cute:) We string cranberries and popcorn so why not candy corn? I have never thought about it, love it:)

  10. What a fun idea for the kids. My only problem is I love eating candy corn too much… i don’t think it would last long enough to string together. I’d be munching while I was making them. haha.

  11. I think I might be able to scrounge up a bracelet or a ring but I’d probably eat too many to make a necklace!

  12. Cute and fun idea! I love candy corn!!

  13. My daughter would LOVE this (she’s such a candy corn queen). Thanks for coming to party with us at Whimsy Wednesday!
