Candy Corn Craft Ideas

Candy corn craft ideas for kids
Ghosts, goblins and things that go bump are fun for the older kids but here are SIX (6) SUPER FUN candy corn craft ideas that little kids and mom will enjoy! The first candy corn craft comes in a bucket with enough supplies for 16 children to each make one of these cute little guys. All mom has to supply is glue! The finished product makes a great Halloween party favor!

Candy corn theme lollipop labels
Buy as many cheap lollipops at the store and then personalize them with candy corn theme party circles. Pick your favorite candy corn clipart and use one of the free printable downloads to make your own labels. Or you could take the easy route and just buy the ones in the picture already personalized with the wording of your choice.

Cute candy corn party favor ideas.  Personalized candy corn mint tins.
One of my favorite candy corn craft ideas is to take all those breath mint tins that you've been saving and re-purpose them with a fresh, new label and a refill of candy for the kids. You can also buy them already personalized and filled with candy with the label in place! But I have to say that my favorite is the cute candy corn candles made from flower pots. They are so cheap to make and absolutely precious. The only drawback with this craft is that some painting skills and supplies are required. But since you get cute
table decorations for a baby shower
or a Halloween party that you can use over and over, you may find that it's worth breaking out the paints and brushes.

Here's a cheap craft idea with a tutorial that is nothing more than orange, yellow, and white yarn glued onto styrofoam cones with a hot glue gun! Sounds silly, right? But three of them as a group make a great table top display!

If you have no yarn but have lots of orange, yellow and white tissue paper, here's instructions on how to make candy corn decorations out of tissue paper.

And I saved the BEST for last! Why is this the best of ALL the candy corn craft ideas? Because you can EAT this one! Yeah! Anything you can eat is top notch in my book! Go HERE to get the recipe and instructions for how to make (drumroll please) candy corn cheesecake! Just so you know, the recipe doesn't actually have candy in it so that's a good thing!
