DIY Candy Corn Candles

One of my favorite times of the year is coming up! Halloween time! I am so excited for Fall to be right around the corner and Halloween to be here. So much so that I busted out my craft supplies and made these awesome DIY Candy Corn Candles in anticipation of my fall tablescape.

Since these candles are oh-so-simple to make and pair perfectly with this cute orange candle holder I just scored at Target for $4 I figured why not get this up and posted now in case anyone else is as crazy as me about Halloween and Fall decor.

And how great do these look with my Halloween centerpiece?

DIY Candy Corn Candles Halloween Centerpiece
If you want to dress up some plane candles you have lying around they grab your mod podge and some tissue paper and start crafting! Here’s how I did it:

DIY Candy Corn Candles

What you’ll need:

  • white unscented candles, any height
  • orange and yellow tissue paper
  • mod podge (Don’t have any? Make your own!)
  • foam brush

What you do:

1. Measure out the width of yellow tissue paper by placing the candle on its side and making a mark where you want the tissue paper to go up to. Then cut off a strip of tissue paper in your desired width.

2. Apply a thin layer of mod podge to the base of the candle and attach tissue paper to the mod podge. Gently smooth out any wrinkles as you apply the paper (easier said than done!).

3. Measure out an orange piece of tissue paper smaller than the yellow (about 1/2 the size) and repeat step 2.

4. Repeat with a second candle to make a pair and let your candle(s) dry completely before setting out on display.

DIY Candy Corn Candles for Halloween

To complete this centerpiece look simply add a cute glass votive, some fake autumn leaves and pumpkins (found at your local craft store or if you’re like me, in the garage), and a nice burlap table runner to go on top of a fall colored tablecloth. To make it even more perfect for Halloween add some spiders to the mix!

Please note, however, that these are decorative only. Wouldn’t want to start any fires!
