My guilty pleasure at Halloween time is a mixture of candy corn and peanuts! What’s your favorite treat? 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.
Here is what you need:
Collect faux pumpkins in a variety of sizes.
I collected faux pumpkins in a variety of sizes from Dollar Tree, Target and Hobby Lobby. Here they are. Do they look like candy corn yet?
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.
- 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.
- Once you have painted them with Waverly white chalk paint, lay the skewers across containers so the pumpkins can dry.
- 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.
- If you like the distressed look, add some distressing.
- Put all the pumpkins on a skewer except the smallest one.
- 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.
- 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.
