2x4 candy corn

Made By Me Monday!
_______________________
These are SOOO fun and super easy to make! This is a perfect craft to let you kids help you with. Throughout this tutorial, you will be seeing pictures of MY candy corn and my the one my 5 year old painted. Let's see if you can tell the difference! :)
SUPPLIES NEEDED:
2x4's
paint
stain
sandpaper
5 year old helper
cut your 2x4's into triangles, AKA candy corn shapes!
By the way... next time I do this project, I will cut my candy corn a little skinnier at the top.
sand them down
paint your first layer white 
paint the second layer orange
final color, yellow
he's so proud!
let dry and then distress it a bit
add some stain to make it look better aged 
or if you don't want to add stain, you can draw on a Sharpie face!
... and always, always, always add bling!
add some ribbon if you'd like
can you guess which one is done by the 5 year old?
This was such a fun project to do! I am thinking of making a bunch of them and wrap them in clear bags for Halloween gifts for teachers and visiting teachers. Perfect!!
TOTAL TIME SPENT: 30 minutes
TOTAL MONEY SPENT: $3.00
