Candy Corn Jack-o-Lantern Tutorial




Need a quick, easy, inexpensive Fall ornament? You choose whether they'll be cute or spooky.


Let's take a closer look at these guys and how to make Candy Corn Jack-o-Lantern Ornaments:



Previously I shared the quickest 
Candy Corn Ornament tutorial ever.  


Ready? 



#1. Open a bag of candy corn.

#2. Stuff pieces of candy into your mouth a clear plastic Christmas ornament.
#3. Tie a ribbon around the neck.
#4. Hang it on your Halloween Tree.


Now let's add two steps to really boost the cute factor. 


Ready?

 #5. Paint a Jack-o-Lantern face on the ornament using "enamel" acrylic paint. You can also use a Sharpie pen.



This expression is cute and friendly.




This expression starts you down the spooky path.




And the last step: 
#6. Dress them up a bit. Simply wrap florist tape around the top and secure a silk leaf with a bit of ribbon.





Now your Candy Corn Ornaments have Personality!




You can also experiment with simply adding stickers to the outside of the ornament.




I found that the dimensional stickers don't work as well on round ornaments.



Flat stickers seem to do fine.




I really like this style of ornament for the pumpkins. 
What do you think?



Do you put up a Halloween Tree?




Are you ready for Halloween?

I would be afraid to try this - most of the candy corn would end up in me. I did like those flat round ornaments though. The floral tape and the leaf added just the right touch.
