Candy Corn Paper Sculpture

Hands down, my favorite Halloween treat is candy corn and the girls tend to agree with me on this point. 

So, to pay homage to our favorite treat, Miss Preschool and I made this fun candy corn paper sculpture.

Disclosure: provided some of the supplies for this project. The ideas are all my own.

Supplies Needed:
Paper plate
Clear tape
Orange paint
Yellow paint

Before we began, I cut a pie-shaped wedge from the paper plate. 

I made sure the point of my pie shape was in the center of my plate.

I curled the paper plate until it resembled a cone. 

I used tape to secure the cone. Try not to use tape on the outside of the cone, since you will be painting it. (If you need tape on the outside, wait until the paint on your candy corn is dry.)

To help our candy cane sparkle, I added glitter to the paint. Add as much or as little as you want. I used a toothpick to mix it together. 

The glitter will add texture and sparkle to the candy corn sculpture. Plus, once it's mixed into the paint it won't scatter all over your house!

Miss Preschool got to work painting her candy corn. It was fun to paint something in 3-D form instead of laying flat on the table. 

She twisted and turned it; painted it; and got plenty of paint all over our table cloth. (But that's the point of our paint-splattered table cloth!)

This was a fun and easy project to do. I'd love to have a whole pile of them! Do you like candy corn?
