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
