Candy Corn Cones for Halloween with The Twinery

Hey friends!!  Today I get to share a new project over on The Twinery blog for the current challenge.  This week we are challenging you to use bakers twine and create something with a Halloween theme.  CLICK HERE for all the details and to get linked up.

Nothing reminds me more of Halloween than Candy Corn and today I am going to share a fun decorative project with you that uses foam cones, some clear drying tacky glue, and some yummy bakers twine from The Twinery.

For my project, I used some Aleene's Original Tacky Glue, 6 inch foam cones, and the Solid Natural bakers twine, Solid Mandarin bakers twine, and Solid Marigold bakers twine.

Starting at the top of the cone with the Solid Natural bakers twine, wind a spiral at the middle of the top of the cone and continue out and then down the cone about 1 1/4 inches.  Switch over to the Solid Mandarin bakers twine and continue to wrap down to about 2 inches up from the bottom (about 3 inches of the Solid Mandarin bakers twine).  

Wrap the rest of the cone in the Solid Marigold bakers twine.  When making this project, you will want to start at the top because as you wind it, it will pull a little bit tight on the cone and when it does, it has a tendency to slide to the smaller area, but if you have the twine you already wrapped in the smaller area, it will just roll against that (I am speaking from experience here).
  

Now I need to find a place on my fireplace mantle for these cuties.  Hop on over and join us for this fun Halloween themed challenge.....click on the picture below to get linked up!!
