Wrap Wreath With Tape
Begin by wrapping the foam wreath with the black crepe paper (you can also use paper streamers, ribbon or fabric).
For the first row, lay the candies out to check spacing, and then glue them in place with the glue gun.
Glue, Glue, Glue
Continue to glue the candy corn onto the wreath until it is completely covered. The front can have as many as a few layers of candies while the sides will only have one. Hang the completed wreath from using the crepe paper.
Step 1. Pour some glue into a disposable cup and some Epsom salt in another cup. Dip your sponge brush into the glue and coat the pumpkin.
Step 2. Put a light coat of glue on the pumpkin – you don’t want to put too much on or else you will get runs and clumps.
Step 3. Sprinkle the Epsom salt over the areas that have wet glue. I did about a quarter of the pumpkin at a time. I was working on an old pizza pan (it is my portable work space) and wish I would have used a paper plate – it would have made clean up a lot easier – so you could make a funnel and pour all of the extra Epsom salt back in the container.
Step 4. Let it dry. Hint: Try using some food coloring to tint the Epsom salt orange or any color you desire.
Pick Your Treat Tree – Find a craggy old branch or pick up some curling willow from your local craft store. Spray-paint your “tree” black and secure it inside a festive planter or pail with florist’s foam. (We hid our foam with shredded black tissue paper, but you could also use dried moss or candy corn.)
To make ghosts, fill white handkerchiefs with small candies and then tie a bow at the neck with yarn, and create faces with fabric paint or a marker.
Our pumpkins are pieces of orange tissue filled with candy, but you can also use orange plastic wrap. Tie them closed with curling ribbon and create the pumpkin faces with a marker.
Found this Great DIY project online that you can easily make. Would look great on your front porch or sidewalk or even by a bush. This calls for a lit candle, but I would use a battery operated tea light.
