Materials Bought: Project Cost: $4ish
Yellow, Orange, and White Acrylic Paint $3ish at Hobby Lobby
Animation Face Stickers $1 at Walmart
Step 1: Use template to cut out desired amount of Candy Corn. My box yielded 11.Optional: Spray paint white.
Step Two:Paint. I used two coats, even with the white spray paint covering up the cardboard.
Step Three (optional): Since this is a Halloween decoration I opted to spray the twine black. I'm sure black cord or yarn would also work but I didn't have any on hand.
Place Face Stickers on Candy Corns. My 4 1/2 year old and 3 year old helped with this. (Just look for the Candy Corns with off-centered mouths or overlapping eyes.) I wish I'd gotten a picture of this! It was a fun time taking turns. They were just as excited about the project as I am!
Coat with Modge Podge or other sealant. These stickers were cheap and threatened to fall off easily. Plus they'll be outside prior to Halloween...and snow on Halloween is almost a guarantee!
Use Glue Gun to attach Candy Corns to twine. Tacky glue could work, too, but the glue gun dries faster.
Step Seven: Hang up!
