For the Love of CANDY CORN!

With four little girls and Halloween falling on a Sunday this year, I was itching to make something adorable for them to wear that wasn't too Halloween-y, I don't think they should be wearing witches and monsters to church, but still fun and festive.

I must admit, I HATE to eat candy corn.  I think it is nasty stuff.  But it is so adorable for decorating and crafting.
So, I put my love of Candy Corn to work, and came up with this:
First of all, I know that her face is hideously blotched green.
We were having a family party and she had just finished eating a Halloween candy necklace that my mom gave her.  I tried to get her to let me wash it off, but that would have meant a screaming child instead of a sticky child.  So I went with sticky!

I only used fabric and ribbon that I had on hand.
 I'm a little obsessed with raw edges right now.
It is so much easier than finishing it off cute!
The bottom was my mom's adorable idea.
I had just the ruffle and thought it needed something but couldn't figure out what.

Now I just have to do 3 more!
Not to mention:
  • Finish the Halloween wreath I started 3 weeks ago
  • Finish my mom's birthday present
  • Come up with something to make for my soon to be 14 year old sister in law
  • Make a hat to go with the baby's costume
  • Prepare for a trip up the canyon this weekend with the in-laws
Do the laundry that I have been putting off for WAY too long!

I should really get to work!


  1. How cute! I don't much care to eat it either, but it looks adorable on your daughter. It looks like you have quite a bit of projects to do--have fun at the canyon.
