Happy Thursday everyone!
Today I want to share with you this fun Candy Corn Bunting Banner.
It is really easy and doesn’t cost a lot of money.
In fact most of the supplies you can probably find around your house.
If your a craft supply hoarder like me! 😉
Do you remember that Pinterest Party I went to in September?
Well this is the craft that I started at that party.
Here is how I made it.
I used cereal boxes!
Mr. C had fun helping me cut up all of our empty cereal boxes.
Maybe you don’t have a lot of boxes like we do. 🙂
But these were a great “canvas” to work with.
Don’t forget to cut out the box tops first! 😉
The first thing I did was free hand the shape of my candy corn. I simply used a straight edge to make a triangle and then rounded the corners. I traced my pattern onto my cereal boxes and cut out all my candy corn shapes.
Using acrylic paint, I first painted the orange. I did a light coat because I liked that you could kind of see the card board behind the paint. (It gives it an antiquey feel.) I was going to tape off the sections for the white and yellow paint, but I really liked the free hand look.
Once they were dry, I punch holes in the top corners of the candy corns.
Then I tied them together with some Halloween ribbon.
If you want to see this banner in all it’s hanging glory, come back tomorrow and see my Candy Corn Faux Mantel.
