As I walked around my local craft store last week, I noticed little Halloween displays all over the store. Almost all of them had candy corn.
I spent the rest of that trip repeating to myself, “You do not need candy corn! You do not need candy corn!”
I guess you can see why I jokingly refer to candy corn as Halloween Crack!
One bag of those + me = sugar coma. Danger, danger, danger!
I created an homage to those last year with my Mellowcreme Pumpkin Earrings.
To continue the homage to my favorite Halloween candies, how about a candy corn hat? It’s easier on your teeth, works up in a jiffy and isn’t particularly hard on your yarn stash, either!
It sure as heck is easier than taking candy from a crafter baby!
