This DIY is a tribute to my beloved candy corn (LOL!).   DIY a candy corn pumpkin stack that will complement your other fall decorations.  They look great on a mantel or shelf and could even be used as part of a table scape or centerpiece.

Paint in colors from your candy corn color pallet – you decide what colors work for you! Candy corn comes in lots of different colors.  I am using:

Optional: White chalk paint to use as “primer”, other colors of paint for distressing

Here is how to DIY A Candy Corn Pumpkin Stack

The first thing I did was to paint all the pumpkins with Waverly white chalk paint. This made it so I had a fresh color free surface to work with.

  1. Remove the stems from the pumpkins and put the pumpkins on the skewers in order to paint them. You have probably seen creators paint beads the same way.
  2. Once you have painted them with Waverly white chalk paint, lay the skewers across containers so the pumpkins can dry.

  1. Paint your pumpkins the various colors you chose. Let them dry, setting the skewers across the bins again. While your paint is drying, check out more Fall DIYs, click here.
  2. If you like the distressed look, add some distressing.
  3. Put all the pumpkins on a skewer except the smallest one.
  4. Put the stem back on the smallest pumpkin.  Stick it on the tip of the skewer and slide the other pumpkins up close to it.
  5. Trim the skewer at the bottom of the largest pumpkin and your finished.

Next, find a place in your home to display your new creation.
