When it comes to decorating for Halloween, I prefer fun decorations over scary and gory Halloween decorations. This candy corn Halloween party banner is so cute and super simple to make. It's as easy as painting and cutting paper plates. This would be a fun craft for kids to do, too. (Can I just mention here how much I miss having little kids around to do these kinds of projects!)
Yellow and orange paint
ribbon or twine
First, paint the outside of the plate orange. The pattern on the plate makes a good guide and helps to make nice even circles. Let the orange paint dry before painting the inside circle yellow. That way the paint won't smear or run together. Leave the center of the plate white.
When the paint is dry, cut the plate in half. Then cut the halves in half again. You should have eight equal pieces that look like candy corn.
I tried using a paper hole punch and threading the twine though the candy corn, but I didn't like the way it looked. I ended up just taping the paper plate pieces to the twine. I used twine for the banner, but ribbon would look good too.
There you go! A super simple and fun candy corn banner for Halloween!
