Who said Halloween candy was for eating?!

So who really did say that Halloween candy was ONLY for eating!? Not I, so why not make a cute craft out of it? This craft was really fun to make, and I have to say mostly because I got to have an excuse to pop a "few" candy's in my mouth :) Love this craft because it's inexpensive, easy to make and makes great fall/Halloween decor!
To Make:

Things you need
Styrofoam cone
Candy Corn
Hot Glue and Gun
Ribbon (optional)
Needle Nose Pliers (optional)

First start by hot gluing the candy corns from the bottom of the Styrofoam cone. I used needle nose pliers to place the candy corn in place after the first couple rows because I found out the hard way that the candy is actually quite slippery and when you have hot glue on the back of them it results in blistered burnt fingers (ouch).
Just work your way up the cone until its covered. I used different colored candy corns to give it a different look, but you can do whatever you want.

Then to add a little extra decor I added a orange and black bow at the top! Super easy, just be careful with the hot glue!
