Candy Corn Invitations

So I created a DIY pink candy corn banner, and decided I loved the idea of pink candy corn, so I decided to create some matching invitations.

Here is an example of one completed; You can download a blank version and edit it in Pic Monkey, that's where I created them and you can find the matching fonts.

Here is a blank version, you could also print it and fill it out by hand if you don't have a photo editing program.

And just in case you wanted to use the invitations for a birthday or another kind of party I made more generic ones

candy corn banner

I love all the pink and black Halloween decorations so I decided to create a pink candy corn banner.

You can really choose any colours you desire the traditional white, yellow and orange, shades of purple, personally I chose white, light pink and dark pink.

For this craft I honestly just went to the dollar store and purchased whatever I thought would work. They had pink felt which I thought would give the banner some texture, parachute cord in pink although you could use a lighter string and black alphabet stickers, you could print out letters from your computer and glue them on although that seemed like to much effort for me personally.

Materials required:
- white cardstock
- free candy corn template
- felt (light pink)
- card stock (darker pink)
- scissors
- marker or pencil
- glue stick
- string, I used pink para cord
- alphabet stickers

I cut out the white cardstock first enough for the phrase I chose: Happy Haunting

Then I glued the pink felt on, followed by the dark pink card stock and lastly I attached the black alphabet stickers. 

I then punched holes in either side of each candy corn (using a small screw driver thing I found in the junk drawer, I'm quite lucky I didn't stab myself in the process) and strung the cord through it. 

And then I hung it up using scotch tape.

This craft is super simple as my crafting skills are about a negative ten so anyone can do it and you it's versatile so you can use the materials you have on hand. 


Here is the template I used, not pretty as I traced the ones I used but functional. I just printed out one sheet and used it as a template to cut them all.

And here is the template I saved 4 to a page. Sorry its a little cut off I tried to draw and scan it.  But i let the kids colour and decorate their own candy corns

So I would love to see how yours turns out please leave a link in the comments or posit it on my FB.

Pink and Black Halloween Cupcake Toppers

I don't know what it is but I love pastel pink and Black Halloween decorations. Maybe it's because I look terrible at orange or that it's not one of my favourite colours. So I created some pastel pink and Black cupckae toppers for you to add to your own Halloween treats.

I created two different sheets, the first one a little darker and the second one a little cuter, as I am indecisive  love options.
