*Waverly fat quarter fabric (Wal-Mart)
*Hot glue gun-click here for my affiliate link to the cordless glue gun I use
*Raffia and ribbon-optional
The first thing I did was round up some yellow, orange, and white fabric. I found these fat quarters of fabric at Wal-Mart but you can find them anywhere that sells fabric or craft supplies. I had the poly-fil on hand but you can also find this at any store that sells craft/sewing items.
Next I took my yellow fabric and folded it in half. I then took my scissors and cut the base shape that I wanted for my candy corn. You want to make sure you have some good, sharp fabric scissors for this project.
Next, I did the same thing with my orange fabric.
Once you have your fabric cut to the correct shape you want to cut through the bottom fold as shown above. Repeat the same step with the white fabric. Don’t forget to cut through the bottom fold on the white fabric as well.
Now, it’s time to start gluing the candy corn together! Yep that’s right…it’s a no sew pillow! I first started by gluing together the sides of the yellow fabric, leaving the top open for stuffing. Next, I lined up the orange fabric to where it needed to be and then folded the bottom edge under for a more finished look and glued that down. I repeated the same step to the back of the candy corn. Remember to leave the middle seams of the front and back of the candy corn open for stuffing.
Next, you will do the same thing to the white fabric. Don’t panic if your fabric doesn’t line up perfectly as you can go back and trim it once you get your candy corn glued together. Make sure and leave the top of the white fabric open so you can put the stuffing in.
Now it’s time to stuff the candy corn. I like to use a wooden stick or dowel to help push the stuffing through. Once you have it as full as you would like then you an glue shut the top of the candy corn.
Once I had my candy corn all glued together I went around and trimmed up where I needed to and round the top a bit. It needed a little something more so I tied some raffia around the middle.
It looks adorable just like this but of course I had to add a bow to mine! I just used a few different patterns of ribbon and crisscrossed my pieces to make a quick and easy bow.
