Halloween Candy Corn Wreath Tutorial

Let me first apologize for not being very diligent about taking pictures for every step of the process.  I just sorta get into this craft mode, and forget that, "duh, it's going on my blog. I should probably take pics."


Now imagine this wreath with ugly wooden hearts hanging from it with some "Home Sweet Home" crap on it and lots of raffia attached to it. Then you will know what it looked like when I picked it up from the thrift store for $1.00

I also purchased some orange spray paint ( I seriously heart spray paint) and some candy corns.

I spray painted it really good on both sides, I just love the glossy look of spray paint!


Then I took my glue gun (does anyone else have a relationship with their glue gun?) and sporadically glued candy corns onto the wreath and added some sweet Halloween fabric to the top to hang it with....

Like this...



Anyhow, that's it!  Pretty simple, and cheap to boot.
