I started early making my 31 Days of Halloween projects. Mostly that meant I did a lot of shopping. I had plans for making a display with my "candy corn" pieces. I kept eating the props. (At least the candy corn and chocolate eyeballs.) I had every intention of using "stuff" I had at home. It worked for about 5 minutes. I hit the road and headed to the local Dollar Tree. Don't buy your candy corn there. It's "generic", and while many things generic aren't different, diet colas and candy corn seem to fall into that category where you need to buy name brand. Disappointing I know.
My skeleton prop came from Dollar Tree, as well as the martini glass.The candy corn, Brach's, came from the local grocer! Now I have all these bags of candy corn. ( Well, at least as I write this I do.) I found this recipe for Candy Corn Cordials from the food network. You'll find other Candy Corn recipes there as well!
I used some decorative paper for a background and an ATC sized black scrap. Stamp the candy corn images on scraps of white paper, color with your Copic markers, then stamp with the cute pumpkin face cut out from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. I found the cute candy corn stamp in the Michael's $1 bin. ( It's been lurking in my stash for awhile and is happy to be out and about!)
