Candy corn speaks fall and autumn loud and clear, and what’s better than candy corn for home décor? I love fall decorations that are classy and can be used year after year, and these candy corn wooden blocks will find a place in your home season after season! Use them to complement a fall mantle or as a kitchen table centerpiece.
These white, orange, and yellow candy corn blocks are super easy to make and budget-friendly. The tutorial below will have you sporting your fall home décor in record time. Make one, three, or as many as you need for your home and also give them as gifts to welcome the fall season!
Supplies to Make Candy Corn Wooden Blocks:
* I purchased a 2” x 4’ piece of wood and had it cut into the proper dimensions at a local home improvement store.
3 wooden blocks (sizes—6” x 2”, 5” x 2”, 4 x 2”)
decorative orange and yellow paper
white card stock
How to Make Candy Corn Wooden Blocks:
1. Sand any rough edges on the blocks. Paint the smallest block white, the medium-sized block orange, and the largest block yellow. Allow the paint to dry. If you like a distressed style, use sandpaper to create the look. When painting each block, it is best to paint three sides first. Once the paint dries, paint the three additional sides. This will keep the wet paint on the blocks from sticking to the surface where they are drying. I painted each block with two coats of paint.
2. Using a ruler and scissors, measure and cut the orange and yellow paper into strips. You will need two orange and two yellow. Glue the strips to their corresponding blocks on the front and back sides using decoupage. I painted two coats of the sealer on each side.
3. Stack the blocks and glue all three blocks together using wood glue. Allow to dry.
4. Tie the raffia ribbon around the blocks and attach the candy corn label (optional). Please use my free candy corn printable label or create your own design.
