INSIDE: How to make a spooky sweet DIY candy corn Halloween wreath using cardboard and Halloween tulle ribbon.

Decorate your front door for Halloween with DIY candy corn wreath made with orange, yellow and white tulle ribbon.

I have a confession. I’ve never tried a candy corn. There, I said it. Out loud and to the whole blogosphere. I have nothing against the triangle-shaped, tri-colored candy; they’ve just never looked like they were worth a run around my neighborhood the next day!

But, that doesn’t mean I can’t decorate in all things white, orange and yellow.

Armed with a piece of cardboard, some packing tape and lots of tulle ribbon, I hung a large candy corn on my door instead of popping a handful into my mouth!
