Decorating Solution!

A couple of months ago, I thought it would be SO cute to put some Candy Corn in a hurricane w/ a candle!  And I thought I was SO smart coming up with that idea . . . and about a week after I "came up" with the idea, I started seeing these Candy Corn/hurricanes pop up all over blogland and Pinterest.

Guess I wasn't as original as I thought!!!  Great minds think alike, right?  And there are lots of ladies out there with great minds :)

Anyways, so I made my little Candy Cane/Hurricane display, put a plain white candle in it and decided it needed a little more "oomph".

 {See?  So plain}

So here's what I did.
I took some twine.  I LOVE twine.
And I put a little dab of hot glue on the back of the candle and stuck the end of the twine to it:

Then I wrapped to my little hearts content!
And here's what I ended up with:

SO easy!!!  I put another little dab of glue to stick the other end of the twine to the candle.

I love it when that "oomph" that you need is so easy!

And I love the color that this super easy, super cheap Fall/Halloween decoration adds to my home.

The twine really spices it up! I thought I would do the same thing until my candy corn mysteriously disappeared between Wal Mart and my home. Oh well.

Cute, cute idea! Maybe with a burning candle on top of the candy corn, I won't try to eat it....LOL! Also just printed your cute little "Happy Halloween " to place in a frame. Thank you so much for sharing.

Wow...that was a great idea! It really added a lot! I have some twine and some candles....looks like I'll be busy! I agree with everyone else...it would be so hard not to eat them all!!!
