Stack up wooden boards into the shape of candy corn for a fall-themed accent piece.


  • water container
  • paper towels
  • sandpaper
  • pencil
  • 1" foam brush
  • twine
  • wooden board
  • E6000 Glue
  • wood stain
  • jigsaw



Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Cut the wood board to the following measurements: one each of 2" x 8" x 16"; 2" x 4" x 9"; 2" x 4" x 8"; 2" x 4" x 6"; and 2" x 4" x 5"; and two each of 2" x 6" x 12".
  2. Set up each candy corn and stand them up to make sure they balance. (Turn them around until they do balance.) The large candy corn uses the 2"x 8" as the bottom, a 2"x 6" as a middle; and a 2" x 4" x 7" as the top. The medium candy corn uses the other 2"x 6" as the bottom, a 2" x 4" x 9" as a middle, and a 2"x 4"x 6" at the top. From the bottom up, the small candy corn uses the 8" x 2" x 4", the 7" x 2" x 4" and the 5"x 2" x 4".
