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.  


#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. 


 #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.
