Making your own Scarecrow Candy Corn Centerpiece using dollar store supplies and items from your craft stash!

My Scarecrow Candy Corn Centerpiece was created for a Dollar Store Craft Challenge I participated in. It was the craft which inspired me to get in touch with my crafty side.

First I went through my craft stash and pulled out anything with a fall flair that I might be able to use. I really wanted to incorporate that pretty Raffia bow but it just wouldn’t work.  

This Scarecrow Candy Corn Centerpiece was the very first craft I made for a Dollar Store Craft Challenge. I already had a small craft stash since crafting was a passion for me anyway. That stash has grown! See my Craft Space Makover!

Let’s begin by cutting the card stock to fit around the inside walls of the square vase. It doesn’t look perfect but it works to trap the candy corn between the makeshift wall and the open center.

Use Scotch tape to hold the card stock in place. 

Place the candy corn between the glass and the cardstock. How To Make A Scarecrow Centerpiece. This fun centerpiece or tabletop Scarecrow is made completely with dollar store supplies.

Next, add the candy corn. I simply taped the card stock into place with a small gap to be able to create a ‘wall’ for the candy corn to fit into. Place the candy corn into the ‘wall’ space all the way around. Carefully shake the candy down to pack it close together.

Now, add the floral foam then the scarecrow. I did not glue in the floral foam into place because I want to be able to reuse this pretty vase in the future.

Then begin placing the leaf steams and floral picks. I wanted my Scarecrow to look like he was standing in a pile of leaves so I selected mostly leaf picks for this centerpiece.

Needle nose pliers are great for cutting the stems to your desired length.

How do you store your hot glue gun while in use? I like using a pie pan to catch the glue drip. My glue gun is probably about 20 years old but it still works and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right!

Just before finishing adding the leaf stems, I hot glued the loose leaves around the top edge to create a finished look. I decided against using the ribbon you see in this photo. Trial and error will always help you decide.

Our brand new Scarecrow Candy Corn Centerpiece has found his way into a pumpkin patch!

The total cost of the project was $13.00.  The only item not purchased was the vase and card stock which were in my stash.
