Candy corn is one of the best things about fall. Not only is it delicious, it’s also super-easy to decorate with. Creating a candy corn box is a great way to make a cute, functional decoration as well as reuse material that would have ended up in the trash. All you need is a handful of materials and you can make a little box that’s perfect to hold anything from wrapped candy to car keys.
What you need:
- Cut an empty box apart so you have approximately three inches in height left to the bottom of the box.
- When you’re adhering the candy corn, do only one side at a time. Put on a thin layer of Mod Podge, attach the candy corn haphazardly or methodically, then flip the box over onto a vinyl placemat with the candy corn face down so it’ll hold the candy in place while it dries. Let it sit to dry for a couple of hours.
- Repeat Step 2 for each side of the box until it’s completely covered in candy corn.
- Wrap a ribbon around the box and tie it in a bow at the front of the box.
Optional: While I chose to leave the box in its original state, you can also line the inside of the box with decorative paper.
