Candy Corn Project

I had an idea for a fun candy corn project, so I went to our garage, looked around, and realized that I already had what I needed to make it.  I've seen lots of cute projects done with terra cotta pots, but no candy corns yet. 

The only supplies I used were a paint brush and some acrylic paint.

And here is what I came up with:

I think it looks really cute!

I didn't want the lines to be straight since they aren't straight on real candy corns, but if you do, you could use painter's tape.

I only had a small pot, but I think I may go get two big pots tonight and paint them to create another project for tomorrow!  So excited!

You could also add a ribbon:

Here is another way to use it:

I filled a cellophane bag with candy corn and popcorn, slapped a cute tag on it and it's ready to be given as a gift!  Doesn't get much easier than that!  I love it!!  You could fill it with anything.

Hudson wanted some, but he's still too little.  Bummer!

I made this tag in less than five minutes using Word.

So I'll be back tomorrow with the addition to the candy corn pots!!

Have you made any projects using terra cotta pots?  I love to hear about them!

Here is where I'm linking up today:
