The Pin Junkie: Halloween Party Candy Corn Banner

Halloween Party Candy Corn Banner

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!)

Supplies Needed:
Paper plates
Yellow and orange paint
paint brush
scissors
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!

  7. I don't like the gore of Halloween, either. We don't really decorate for Halloween- just Fall in general, but I love the candy corn banner! My boys would love putting this together :) Visiting from Whimsy Wednesdays!

  14. Great idea! My kiddos would love to do this project. Anything with paint really... (I'm with you though candy corn is much prettier than it tastes. We'll just use it for decorations.)
