Zoulah was peeking in the Women's Day Magazine the other day and she saw these spheres. She featured them in her Candy Corn Tablescape this week. Zoulah wants to tell you that they are so easy to make. It took Zoolah about 30 minutes to make each sphere. They provide an extra punch of color during the Halloween season.
2 Large bags of candy corn (26 ounce) per sphere -- You won't use all of it.
Two 4-inch spheres -- Wal-Mart sells them in a double package for about $3.50
Low temperature glue gun
Candle holders or urns or anything to display the spheres. Zoulah found her candle holders at a garage sale.
Toothpicks to pick out stray hot glue threads.
Take your sphere and position it on top of a small bowl; Zoulah used a ramekin. Begin gluing candy corns on the sphere in a circle around the sphere horizontally; make sure that you do not leave any space inbetween the candy corns. When you start the next row, try to position the first candy corn in the row inbetween two of the candy corns from the first row --- brick laying fashion. Now, Zoulah wants to caution you to not be a perfectionist on this. If the row of candy corns is not straight that's okay.
Zoulah found that you should apply hot glue to the bottom of each candy corn and not run a row of glue on the styrofoam sphere. By gluing each sphere, you will get less of the hot glue threads. Use a toothpick to remove any stray glue threads. When finished, place on candy holder or on top of the opening of an urn.
