We shared this project over at The Ribbon Retreat last week and really love how it turned out! It is a no sew Candy Corn Banner! Yep–NO SEW! It’s made of felt, so it will never fray, it will last forever and it’s inexpensive too! And who can resist those cute fall colored candies? Whether you like to eat them or just decorate with them, candy corns are kind of a must have for Halloween. 😉
Let’s get started!
Here’s what you need:
- Orange, yellow, and white felt
- Iron and ironing board
- Rotary cutter and mat
Now place the adhesive side of the Heat’n’Bond to one side of the felt (the paper liner should face up). Place and hold hot iron (no steam) on the paper for 2 seconds, repeat until the whole surface is bonded.
While that cools, make a candy corn template out of light cardboard, or card stock. Make the triangle using the same technique we used as kids making hearts, remember? — Fold the cardboard in half and draw the triangle line away from the fold, then cut to get a perfectly symmetrical triangle.
Now use the template to make the colored candy corn pieces. Draw a straight line and cut according to the size you want of each color. We made the white (top) a little smaller than the orange and yellow.
Be sure to hop over to The Ribbon Retreat and check all their awesome craft supplies!
We hope you are having a spooktacular Halloween month!!
