  • Start by drawing the outline of a piece of candy corn on a piece of white paper using a pencil or use our free printable template!
  • Dip your sponge into yellow paint and lightly dot it on the bottom third of the candy corn.
  • Then, dip another sponge into orange and do the same in the middle of the candy corn.
  • Either leave the top portion white or dip another piece of sponge into white paint and cover the top of the candy corn.
  • Once the candy corn is dry, glue on your eyes and pink pom pom cheeks. Don't forget the little smile!
