Candy Corn Necklaces

 
 Hi there Blissful and Domestic readers!  
 
It's Jill again from Create.Craft.Love!  Last month I shared my Pottery Barn Clothespin Chandelier. Today, I am sharing a quick and easy Halloween tutorial for making Candy Corn Necklaces!

Remember as a kid, when you would get those candy necklaces?  Personally, I thought they tasted gross.  With all the candy corn tutorials floating around the Web, I did my own take on this candy store classic.
 
Warning:  You will get sticky.  So don't touch your DSLR camera with your sticky candy corn nubbins.  AND you will get a stomach ache from eating all the broken pieces.  =)
 
Here's what you need:
 
Bag of candy corn
 Needle and thread
Scissors
(Cute child model - optional)

Begin by measuring your little one's head.  {I have ever mentioned that Reed has an exceptionally large cranium.}
Once measured, thread your needle.  I chose the tiniest needle I could out of my craft needle kit (the cross stitching one).
Carefully impale the candy morsel and pull the thread through the hole.

Repeat this step about 30 times.  {I didn't make it a complete circle of candy corn because it was getting pretty heavy.}

Tie a knot at the end!
So easy and quick!  The whole project took me about 15 minutes!  
These would be great for a child's Halloween party or an extra special Mommy treat on Halloween!
