We love crafts at our house, and the holidays bring out the craftiness in full force! I was recently selected to work on a very exciting craft project using White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s. Don’t they sound mouth watering good? Here is a confession, when I first heard about these I thought that they would be tri-colored M&M’s, but instead it is a bag filled with yellow, orange, and white candies. This is such a fun twist! The possibilities for baking and crafting are virtually endless.
Finding the White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s was not an easy task. My third hunting mission to Walmart was a success and I found a big display of them at the end of the Halloween Candy aisle. I went back a week later and found them on the candy aisle shelving, but not near the other M&M’s. So, if you are looking for these this Halloween be sure to check high and low (literally).
Crafting has so many possibilities and I had many different ideas run through my mind, but I ultimately settled on creating a Candy Corn Wreath using the Candy Corn M&M’s. The only material needed for this craft project were Candy Corn M&M’s, a styrofoam wreath, low temp glue gun with low temp glue sticks, and ribbon. I used 2 bags of candies on this project which left plenty to munch on while making it! There are even a few leftovers.
To recreate this project simply glue the Candy Corn M&M’s to the styrofoam wreath using a low temp glue gun. Initially I tried to create the wreath not using a pattern, but I just couldn’t do it. It would look absolutely cute being totally random, but I guess I love patterns a little too much. The patterns will never match since the circles get larger as you go around the circle, but you can get pretty close. In a box of Halloween decorations I found a circular “Happy Halloween” wooden sign which was the perfect accessory to this wreath!
If you love these new M&M’s and you love crafts or cooking then you will definitely want to take a peek at the M&M’s Get Corny site. There are some amazing ideas over there. Plus, you can vote for your favorite between October 7th and 21st.
