My 11 year old daughter loved how super easy and cute this craft turned out. You can even experiment and try different fabrics or materials to make this candy corn banner. With the use of Glue Dots® Advanced Strength adhesive, this project easily stays cute after the season ends.
Made by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 30 minutes
Size: 45 ½" x 5 ½"
Here's what you need:
- Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Dot N Go™ or All Purpose Dots™
- White felt
- Oly*Fun Multipurpose material - Orange and Yellow
- Hole punch by We R Memory Keepers
- 3 different size circle templates (you can also use plates)
Here's what you do:
Using 3 different sized circles, trace the shape onto the Oly*Fun materials. The biggest circle should be traced onto the orange material, the medium one onto yellow and the smallest circle should be traced onto the white felt. Cut the shapes using scissors.
Adhere the smaller circles on top of the orange fabric, centering them on top of each other. Use Glue Dots Advanced Strength Dots or All Purpose Dots to attach them onto each other.
Use a ruler and pencil, mark the back side of the layered circles to create “pie” shapes.
I was able to make six pie pieces from my circle but you can make more wedges on yours. Cut the piece to make the individual triangles.
Punch holes on the top of the candy corn pieces.
Thread some thin ribbon through the holes to connect two triangles together. Tie the ribbon into a bow and trim the excess.
Thread a longer ribbon on the two edges of the banner and tie the ends.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
