Candy Corn Carnival. I have to confess, I love candy corn candies…actually, I kind of love almost all candies. But, something about Candy Corn candies, the smell, the super syrupy taste, the look, it’s like I am instantly a little kid again. So, when I partnered with Oriental Trading Company to create a few blog posts for them this season, and I saw the Candy Corn Bowling on their website, I KNEW what I was going to do!
Since I am totally in love with the barn wood backdrop lately, I used it (again), and accented it with a DIY painted “trick or treat” wooden banner from Michaels. I used DecoArt paints to paint the banner to look like Candy Corn candies. I also found a cute sign at HomeGoods to hang on the backdrop. I also made some cute little scrap wood Candy Corn decorative pieces for the table with my yellow, orange, and white DecoArt Paint.
I went with all store bought treats for our carnival, and the more sugar, the better. Candy Corn Jet Puffed Marshmallows were guest favorite. Candy Corn candies, Candy Corn flavored chocolates, and cake were also on the table.
The kids guessed how many Candy Corns were in the jar, played Candy Corn bowling, and even played ring toss on Candy Corn style painted root beer bottles. Candy Corn bowling was set up on a wooden surface with a giant wooden painted pumpkin as the stopper. The ring toss bottles were super easy to make, in fact, I even made them the day of our carnival! I sprayed the empty bottles with primer paint, and then painted more DecoArt paint on them, yellow on the bottom, orange in the middle, and white on top. We used a glow stick bracelet as the rings.
It was a great time…and I am not sure how I am going to top October’s after school activities next month. 🙂
