Everybody knows about stringing popcorn or cranberries at Christmas time, but is there anything similar that can be done for Halloween? What about candy corn? I’ve been wondering aloud to Jo since last Halloween whether or not candy corn would survive being strung, and finally I decided to try it out. It wasn’t an easy task, but it did work well enough to make a candy corn bracelet for my niece to wear on Halloween.
This is one of those projects that you probably know how to do as soon as I mention what it is, but I’m going to go through the steps anyway so you can see just how I did it.
Thread the cord through your needle and poke it right into the candy corn. Aim for the middle of one of the colors, as the points where two colors meet tend to be a little weaker and will lead to more breakage. Push the needle through and slide the candy down the line.
For the first piece, tie a knot so that they don’t all fall off the end of the line as you continue to work.
By they way, some of them will break. Okay, a LOT of them will break. I had about half of them work and half fell to pieces. Hey, it just meant more to snack on!
Eventually I had enough to make a nice bracelet. I tied the ends in a knot and that was it!
I just love the simple yet quirky look of the finished bracelet. I’ll definitely need to make one for Jo’s daughter to wear with her candy corn costume on Halloween.
