Candy corn is one of the all-time favorite treats of the fall season. Now you can surround yourself with them (and not feel guilty), by making these fun and tasty-looking decorations!

For this project, you'll need the following items:
empty mason jars or wine bottles
orange, yellow, and white paint
spray glitter (optional)

Using painter's tape or free-hand, you'll now paint the jar or bottle to look like candy corn! Follow the pattern white, yellow, then orange - in either direction. Make sure each color is dry before starting the next. Finally, use spray glitter to give it extra pizzazz!

Paint half of a bag of lima beans yellow, and the other half orange. The other beans you'll keep white. Then, begin gluing them on your wreath starting from the outside - all the way to the inside.

The last step is to tie a ribbon on your wreath to use as a hanger. See how phenomenal it looks?

Start by painting a Styrofoam wreath black (it'll make the candy corn pop!). Once it's dry, hot glue pieces of the candy all around the wreath. Consider planning your arrangement before you even start.
