Transcript:How to Make Construction Paper Candy Corn CraftsHi, I'm Bonnie Zaiss for About.com. Candy corn is not only a wonderful sweet snack for the fall, but a colorful addition to your autumn decorations. Here's an easy fun project for you and your child (or children) to enjoy together.
Supplies for Construction Paper Candy Corn CraftsHere are the supplies you'll need:
- 3 sheets of colored paper -- yellow, orange and white for the top, middle and bottom of the candy corn (we're using sturdy cardstock to make the finished product, since it's easier to display)
- A hole punch
- Glue or double-sided tape
- Chenille stems for hanging
- Any fun embellishments like glitter or stickers
Create a Template for Construction Paper Candy Corn CraftsStart off with a large drawing of a candy corn. You can draw one easily freehand or use a ruler and a curved object -- a CD works great. Draw 2 lines to separate the three sections for the top, middle and bottom. This drawing will act as a template for the three parts.
Trace and Cut Out the Pieces for Construction Paper Candy Corn CraftsNow cut out the entire candy corn and trace the whole corn onto the white, yellow and orange paper. You'll be layering all three sheets together. Start with the white candy corn drawing and cut out the entire corn. The white background will act as a base for the other two layers. Go back to the stencil and cut it into the 3 sections.
For the orange layer, trace the top and middle sections of the template onto the paper. Cut out the tracing to create the second layer of the candy corn. Do the same with the yellow paper using the top part of the stencil.
Glue and Embellish Your Construction Paper Candy Corn CraftsUse glue or double-sided tape on each layer. Start with the orange layer on top of the white base, followed by the yellow top. Trim around layers if necessary.
Keep kids busy with adding fun embellishments like glitter or stickers. Have them add their name to the finished artwork. Punch a hole through the top and attach a colorful chenille stem to hang your decoration.
