Halloween Crafts with Starburst Candy Corn

Confession time - I do not enjoy making crafts with my kids. I like cooking with them, doing science experiments, and art projects so I'm not a total slacker mom. You see whenever I think my kids and I should craft together I end up frustrated and someone cries, usually me. So when I'm feeling crafty it is a solo project! This is why I jumped on board to participate in an adult craft campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starburst. I received product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. No need to pretend that I had fun crafting with my kids since this is a solo project.

I love making crafts, but I'm not a crafty person. Now I know that may sound like a contradiction but hear me out, I like to make crafts that other people have created. Let to my own imagination, things don't turn out that well. Last Christmas I made a wreath I saw online made out of gumdrops. It was so easy since all I had to do was hot glue gumdrops onto a wreath. Easy and simple crafts are right up my alley.

Transform your dining room with Starburst Candy Corn

Tori Spelling and Starburst have teamed up for Halloween. Tori Spelling created several new crafts that you can make for Halloween. She also gives many tips to make your holiday amazing. My favorite is to start your theme at the door. There are several great project ideas that you can make. I choose to make some place cards since they looked like the perfect addition to my table this Halloween.

Of course I had to try the Starburst Candy Corn before I could make my craft. Who wouldn't want to eat the candy as well? A few days after my husband went out and bought two more bags. I have reviewed many products on my blog but this is the first time my husband has gone out and bought more of the product. He absolutely loves these and I have to agree with him. You should know that he also hates candy corn, which is weird but does tell you that you don't have to like candy corn to like these.

You can find the complete set of directions to all the crafts on Starburst's Facebook page. I made the place cards which are very easy to make!

Supplies needed
glue gun
heavy card stock
Starburst Candy Corn

Step 1. Cut a 2.5" X 4' rectangle out of the heavy card stock. Fold it horizontally to make a tent.
Step 2. Write each guests name in the bottom right corner of each piece.
Step 3. Using a glue gun, attach the candy pieces to the upper left hand corner with the tips pointing inward. Allow the glue to dry.

My finished product

I loved the way they turned out! I used lavender card stock since purple is a great accent color for Halloween. For an adult party I don't want to go with the standard back and orange color scheme.

Head on over to Facebook and see all the crafts that you can easily recreate. When it gets closer to party time I'm going to make the napkin rings below to add another personal touch to my table.

Do you like to make crafts out of candy? What project do you think you'll make this year for Halloween?
