Candy Corn is probably one of the most iconic types of candy ever made and sold in the United States. It’s triangular shape and classic colors of white, orange and yellow that mimic the appearance of actual kernels of corn are regular staples during the Halloween season. And it’s estimated that over 20 MILLION pounds of candy corn is sold every year! Now that’s a lot of candy! If you find yourself a huge lover of this special and seasonal candy, you may want to consider making it a part of your Halloween decor. Even if you don’t use the actual candy, there are plenty of ways to create the candy corn look and incorporate it into your home this holiday season.

This muslin covered wreath is made complete by pinning a few hundred folded pieces of canvas in oranges, reds and whites. It may not be a quick craft, but it’s definitely a show stopper.
