Today's Guest: Young and Crafty

I am so excited to be guest posting today for Karen during Monster Bash! My name is Hannah and I blog over at Young and Crafty.

I'm going to show you how to make these giant candy corn.
Here are the supplies you will need:
Something bigger than a 2x4
Wood glue
Ok, let's get started!
Stack your blocks together and draw your lines. I just free handed this part. Your wider wood will be a pointer version of the candy corn.
Cut out your corn. I used a miter saw but you could easily use a miter box and some elbow grease! I sanded them down and rounded the tops and corners.
Take a generous amount of wood glue.
Clamp them together. I let them sit for about an hour or so.
Then paint each block the color of candy corn. I decided they were way to pretty.
So I sanded them a bit by roughing up the edges and lightly sanding over all of the paint.
Then I decided that they weren't distressed enough. I whipped out the stain and got this hot mess of a candy corn. It turned the white an awful shade of purple.
That corn got a redo. Obviously I couldn't put that on display!
And now I've got two beautiful candy corn!
I could just eat em' up. I looooveee me some candy corn. Even better is candy corn and peanuts!
They are hanging out on my floating shelves.
And here is how the whole wall looks!
I hope you have time to whip some of these up before Halloween! I'd love for you to come visit Young and Crafty sometime when you are bored :)
Thanks so much for letting me show off my giant candy corn Karen!
