INSIDE: How to make a spooky sweet DIY candy corn Halloween wreath using cardboard and Halloween tulle ribbon.
I have a confession. I’ve never tried a candy corn. There, I said it. Out loud and to the whole blogosphere. I have nothing against the triangle-shaped, tri-colored candy; they’ve just never looked like they were worth a run around my neighborhood the next day!
But, that doesn’t mean I can’t decorate in all things white, orange and yellow. Armed with a piece of cardboard, some packing tape and lots of tulle ribbon, I hung a large candy corn on my door instead of popping a handful into my mouth!

how to make a candy corn door hanger with cardboard
Cut TWO large triangles from a piece of cardboard. Place the two pieces together and secure the sides with packing tape. Leave the large end of the triangle open so that it mimics a pocket.
Start wrapping the white tulle around the bottom of the triangle. Next wrap the orange tulle followed by the yellow tulle at the largest part of the triangle. The sections will become wider as you move up the triangle.
You may need to double wrap to fully cover the cardboard from peeking through the tulle ribbon.
