I just love your candy corns. Did you cut them out yourself? Are they the 1/2 or 1/4 inch plywood? You did a great job on those happy faces. Your candy apple is very clever too. TFS. Luvs

Very cute!! I really liked the candy corn on the left as he looks like he is saying "so long!" & might run off! Love the candied apple so cute & different.

Good for you, Missy--I guess! No way would I be wanting to have to crank out 75 of anything! LOL It is nice to know others appreciated your creations, isn't it? Hope you charge enough to be worth your time and effort. Luvs

Great yard art! I love to decorate the yard, and mine is the only decorated yard on our road - stuffy neighbors!

But I never thought to use the candy corn the way you have...what a great idea! Thank you for sharing and get busy on those candies!
