Decorate for your Halloween party with a fun and easy Candy Corn kiss ball. These quick directions will show you step by step how to turn your Halloween decorations from cool to AWESOME-SAUCE.
I know that some of the Trunk or Treat and community festivals are this week, but for the most part, everything doesn't really kick off until next weekend and then it's ALL weekend. I know of at least 5 local Trunk or Treat activities going on next Saturday and Sunday.
This weekend seems to be the calm before the storm. You can sit down and enjoy the Halloween fun with your family and friends in a fun dinner party or movie watching party.
So I've been setting my table up while the kids are at school, trying to decide if I needed something "more" to take it from cool to AWESOME-SAUCE.
I definitely needed something a little more. So I ran to Walmart this morning after dropping the kids off to school and picked up a few supplies to make some Candy Corn kissing balls for my Halloween table decorations.
Once I got the hang of it, they were super easy to do and I love how cute they turned out.
To make your own Candy Corn Kissing Ball Halloween Decoration, you'll need:
- Bag of Candy Corn (I used about 2/3 of a 17 ounce Candy Corn bag from Walmart)
- Small Taper Candle Holder (found at Dollar Tree)
- 3 inch Styrofoam Ball
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Yellow or matching 3/4 inch ribbon
Use your glue gun to secure your Styrofoam ball to the top of the candle holder. This will keep the ball steady and help you keep the center of the kissing ball even and pretty.
Lay the secured candle holder and styrofoam ball down on your table and start glueing the candy corn to the bottom of the ball so it lays up next to the candle holder. It was easiest to put a large glob of melted glue on the top half of the back side of the candy corn.
Be careful because the candy corn is fragile so you want to hold it up to the ball and let the glue grab the Styrofoam and hold to secure. Don't push the candy corn up against the ball because it may break.
Once the bottom layer is secured and dry, do it again, securing the candy corn in a layer directly above the candy corn that you just glued.
Repeat the pattern until you get to the very top.
Glue one single candy corn to the top of the kissing ball to cover the center spot of Styrofoam that is showing.
Using a matching ribbon to your candy corn or Halloween party color scheme, tie a pretty bow to the base of the candle stick.
Now place your Candy Corn Kissing ball on your table. Add your other Candy Corn Halloween party elements and have a fun Halloween dinner party tonight!
