Candy Corn

I love this time of year! I think Fall has the best decorations. A few days ago I came across this adorable picture HERE: So cute. I knew I had to have my own wood candy corn. So me and my sister made a small, medium, and large candy corn pattern, traced it on wood and on beadboard and sweetly asked my husband to cut them out for us. I painted the wood and beadboard like a candy corn.


Then distressed both the wood and beadboard.
Next, I covered all pieces in stain to give it a old weathered look.

Display for all to see!!

Instead of using wood glue to attach the two together, I used a nail in each corner. I think it added some real cuteness to them!
I added some raffia and berries to the large candy corn.
I wrapped some jute string around the medium sized candy corn and added one red leaf.
