Easy Candy Corn Treat Plate

I am so excited to be joining some other amazing bloggers today to share Halloween crafts that you can make in 15 minutes or less! I'm sharing this candy corn treat plate that literally took me just minutes to make, and those are the kinds of crafts I like best.

Easy Candy Corn Treat Plate from playpartypin.com, literally takes less than 15 minutes to make

Okay, so confession, I love candy corn. It's one of my secret obsessions in the fall, and I buy it pretty much the first time, and every time, I see it. And I know candy corn isn't really Halloween as much as it is fall, but I'm planning to use this treat plate for my Halloween party, so I think it counts. And if you don't think so, then you can make this as a fall decoration and skip over to the other 15 minute Halloween craft ideas instead!

Supplies:
  • Styrofoam Cone - any size, but I used 7 7/8 inches x 11 7/8 inches 
  • White, orange, and yellow yarn
  • Small white plate
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Candy Corn 
Instructions:

Step 1 - Make one styrofoam candy corn using this tutorial that I posted last year. It took me about 5-10 minutes to make one candy corn.


Step 2 - Cut the white portion of the candy corn you just made off the top of the candy corn.


Step 3 - Hot glue the bottom half of the candy corn to the bottom of the white plate, making sure to center it as much as possible.




Step 4 - Hot glue the white portion of the yarn candy corn to the top of the plate, making sure to line it up with the bottom half of the candy corn.


Step 5 - Add candy corn and display in a fun area for all to see! And make sure you have plenty of candy corn on hand because with this cute display, it's sure to get eaten quickly.

Birthday Giveaway Week: Pick Your Plum

This post may contain affiliate links where I may pennies if you buy something, but I promise that I love all of the things that I'm promoting! 

I'm starting a new tradition this year and celebrating my birthday all week long! And when I say celebrating, I really mean giving away my favorite things all week long! The party started yesterday with the first giveaway, going on right now on Facebook for your chance to win an Amazon gift card. Hurry over to enter now because you can only win until 8PM EST on Monday, September 22nd!


If you have seen any of my recent parties or read many of my posts, you'll know that I am pretty much obsessed and addicted to all things Pick Your Plum. Whether it be the awesome patterned leggings I posted on Instagram this weekend or some random party supply, Pick Your Plum seriously has the best stuff. And I'm so happy to tell you that they are sponsoring today's giveaway!


Not familiar with Pick Your Plum? Start here. Basically they offer daily deals on craft stuff, party supplies, home decor, clothes, jewelry, accessories, etc. There's a new deal (or three) that go up every day at 9AM EST, and I may or may not have my alarm set to that time so I remember to check out the new deal. The catch is that you have to buy the deal before they sell out, and there's typically a limited supply. So you have to pick your plum before the next person does... makes sense right? Check out all of the awesome ways I've used Pick Your Plum in my parties!

Candy tubes in my Captain America party 



Daisy cut lids and baskets in my apple party 



Treat boxes and striped straws in my chocolate + football party 



All sorts of misc containers in my Lovely in Lavender DIY spa party 


And last but not least, personalized thank you tags for K's 1st birthday party


One lucky winner will receive an incredible grab box full of all sorts of Pick Your Plum goodies valued at $25. I've received a couple of grab boxes from Pick Your Plum and can tell you right now, they are one of my favorite things ever. The only thing that you know about what you're going to get is that it's going to be awesome and full of things perfect for the crafter, baker, party planner, and fashionista in you! 

To enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below. Giveaway ends on Monday, September 29th at 11:59 PM EST. Winner must have a U.S. mailing address and will be contacted via email. If they do not respond to claim their prize within 48 hours, they will forfeit their prize and another winner will be chosen.

Girl Pirate Party Ideas

This post may contain affiliate links where I make pennies if you buy something, but that compensation did not influence these ideas in any way. 

Happy national talk like a pirate day! Arr matey and all that. Pretty sure I don't know how to speak pirate, so it's a good thing that K doesn't mind being dressed up like a pirate today to get us a dozen free donuts at Krispy Kreme!

In honor of national talk like a pirate day, I thought it would be fun to put together some of my favorite pirate party inspiration, specifically girl pirate party ideas per the request of my friend Mandi whose little girl is turning 4 and loves pirates. I looked at a lot of different party sets and the pink skull set from Birthday Express is my absolute favorite. Maybe it's because it uses a darker pink than most or because it is dirt cheap right now, either way it was my favorite out of all of the designs I looked at.

A party isn't complete without festive party decor, and Birthday Express has some great options that match the Pink Skull set.

And of course, every pirate birthday girl needs a great pirate costume. Okay really, I think everyone needs one of these awesome pirate hats and an inflatable sword.
