Candy Corn!

This past weekend my husband was kind enough to attend a craft bazaar with me. While there, we saw the cutest little wooden candy corn decorations, and if you know me at all you know I love candy corn. It kind of borders on an obsession. I picked one up, determined to own it, but after Cory saw the price tag he said, "I can make those." To which I replied, "Yes, but you don't have the time." He pointed to the price tag and replied, "I'll make the time." And he did.
That evening we went shopping for a few paint brushes and some candy corn colored paints. Cory then cut out not just one, but three sizes of candy corns. The following day he made several more, and we proceeded to paint them and distress them with a bit of sand paper. The picture below is our project about half finished. It went really fast!
And here's the end result! It's hard to see, but if you click on the picture it will enlarge it to show detail and you will notice some of the edges are a bit sanded off, giving them a shabby chic appeal, the perfect accompaniment for all my Autumn decor!

Adorable! Isn't it nice to have such a handy handsome spouse:)
I do think of you anytime I see anything candy corn. They have candy corn flavored "dot" candy at Target, totally up your alley!

OK, you know I am not asking my husband to "make time" for those, but I don't have any problem begging you to give me just "one". It would make a nice happy and you know we all love a happy. Pleeeaaassseee, Cory? Just one? They are super cute!

See ya soon.

Tell Cory thanks a bunch! They are even cuter in "real time". I will think of you all every time I look at them.

I absolutely love that your hubby did this for you! This was definitely a large deposit into the love bank. And such cute turn outs.

Given any thought to making some and selling them yourselves?
