Candy Corn Bunting...

Recently, I came across this post from Cake & Cotton!
I fell in love with this paper candy corn bunting project...

So cute!!!

I thought I'd give it a try with felt so that I could reuse it year to year...
 and it was maybe a $6 project!
The key is to buy the cheap felt by the yard at Joann's and use a coupon!
(score.)




I didn't to a full tutorial for this...oops.
But basically I followed the tutorial for the paper version with a little variation.
I cut three yellow circles at 12 inches in diameter,
three orange circles at 8 inches in diameter,
and three white circles at 4 inches in diameter.

Then, I layered the circles from biggest to smallest like a bullseye.
I pinned the center and then machine stitched around the orange and white circles
to bind them all together.

Then I got out my rotary cutter and ruler to cut each circle into
8 equal pieces (like a pizza! HA!)



Then I stitched around the entire candy corn to finish it off...
poke holes in the corners and string with ribbon,
twin, yarn, whatever!!

I LOVE IT!!!


Gavin talks about how much he wants to eat it! HA!
Candy corn is his favorite!! : )

I wanted to show you this amazing shelf I got for a ridiculously good deal at
Hobby Lobby, too!! I love it!


It was 50% off and then it was missing a couple of screws (that I knew Chris could replace)
and so they gave it to me for 66% off....what?! So awesome!
Thankful for some shop sales money!

I'm excited to change it out seasonally and also to have a place to hang stockings
(see the little hooks on the bar?).
We don't have a mantle so this is great!!!

I want to start a little "O" collection!

Gotta love little 50% off finds at HL!! Love the little bird!!

I'm still deciding what would look cute in the drawers!!!

So, that's about it! Hope you liked the project!

Have a great weekend!
We're going to enjoy the nice weather and go for a bike ride!

Blessings!
