Burlap Candy Corn

In case you missed my post at Naptime Crafters, here is my tutorial for burlap candy corn!
I LOVE burlap and LOVE candy corn, so I knew the combination had to be great!  Come along, and I'll show you how I made these two beauties!
I started out by cutting a rough candy corn shape out of burlap.  You will need a front and back for each candy corn.  I decided to make a large candy corn and a smaller candy corn.  
Next, I painted each piece of burlap--fronts and backs--with acrylic paint.  I just eyeballed where I wanted to paint, and it turned out fine! I decided to leave the top part plain instead of painting it white.  I let these dry overnight. 
Next, I pinned the candy corn together, wrong sides together.  
I left more than an inch in seam allowance.  I sewed almost all the way around the candy corn, but I left a large opening in the bottom.
I stuffed the candy corn, using a pencil to help punch out the corners completely.  Then I sewed up the opening!
I decided to use pinking shears to cut around the seams.  I love the effect!
I looked at these for a solid week, knowing that they needed something to jazz them up!  I decided on some ricrac!  I just hot-glued the ricrac around the candy corn right in between paint layers.
Don't they make a nice back drop for my spider topiary? (Even before the ricrac!)  You can check out my spider topiary tutorial today at Moo Moo's & Tutus, where I am guest posting for the talented Daphne's blogiversary bash! 
 I love Halloween crafts!  I am having way too much fun with fall decor.  I think I now have more decorations than my tiny apartment can handle!
