Surprised? It’s inexpensive, brightly colored, and is a universal fall favorite; all of which make it the perfect crafting ingredient. We made some fun bracelets and earrings, and it was surprisingly easy! Let me show you how:

How to Drill Holes in the Candy Corn

For all of these projects, you’ll need to drill holes in the Candy Corn – be patient as it’s harder than you think! I found that it worked best to set the drill up and then carefully hold the candy corn as you drill a hole through it. Use a small bit, around 1/16” and let the drill dig out the hole instead of trying to push the candy corn onto the drill bit. Use SLOW speeds! Know that some will break – it’s ok! Just eat the broken pieces…win, win, right?!

For the earrings, I placed the hole about 1/3 the way down from the point of the candy corn. For the bracelet, I placed the hole in the middle of the candy corn.

How to Make Candy Corn Earrings

After drilling small holes in the Candy Corn that is about the same size/shape, you’re ready to assemble your earrings.

You’ll want to spray those candy corn with a coat of sealer to protect them from getting wet and/or sticky. It goes without saying, but after you spray them, you shouldn’t eat them! Keep them away from little kiddos.

Next thread the candy corn onto the open hoop. With the hole being closer to the top of the candy corn, it allows the thicker bottom of the candy to fit nicely.

Voila! That’s all there is to it! way fun!! you might want to make a couple of extra candy corn with holes in case you need to swap out for any that may break. We haven’t had one break yet, but you never know.

How to Make a Candy Corn Bracelet

Next up, the bracelet!! I wanted to treat this one as you would a candy necklace, where you can eat the candy from it. Because of that, I DID NOT spray the candy with a sealer.

Line up your candies in similar size/shape, alternating up and down, as shown:

Using the Stretch Magic cording, thread the candy corn onto the cording.

Keep threading them on until you have enough to go all the way around the wrist.

Tie the ends of the stretch magic according to the package instructions (tie in a square knot and then tie another knot on top of that, pulling tight each time).

Wear and enjoy!
