I made 50 of these little felt candy corns for Meals on Wheels. I thinks they would make an awesome banner on a long ribbon or tied onto a gift box for an October birthday gift.

Cut out all of the pieces using the Halloween template from Felt with Love Designs. She actually sewed a happy face onto her candy corns. Since I was making 50 candy corns I had to delete that step.
Using the orange thread sew the orange piece onto the front piece of the candy corn using a running stitch.
The sides of the orange don't need to be sewn - just the top and bottom.
Sew the yellow piece overlapping the orange piece. Just sew the top of the yellow piece using the yellow thread and a running stitch.
Since I was making 50 of these little candy corns - I worked in batches.
Once the front piece is sewn with both the yellow and orange - you will need a solid pice of white triangle felt, a 8-inch piece of ribbon and a little stuffing or cotton ball.
Sew the front piece to the back piece using white thread and a blanket stitch- before sewing the candy corn shut sew the ribbon into a loop and add a little stuffing or a cotton ball.
I feel so organized that I completed the Meals on Wheels Halloween treat in September!
