Candy Corn-ucopia

These  candy corn glass beads have been sitting around forever!  I used some of them in my Candy Corn Queen crown but still have a pile left.

Supplies:  2 silver seed beads, 2 candy corn shaped beads, 2 rhinestone rondelle beads, 2 round orange beads, 2 antique silver rondelle spacer beads, 2 two inch silver head pins, 2 silver fish hook earring findings.

Step ONE: Assemble each earring with silver seed bead, candy corn bead, rhinestone rondelle, orange bead and finish with the silver rondelle spacer bead at the top.

Step TWO: After assembling the beads, bend the wire and snip so less than 1/2″ is left to bend into a loop.

Step THREE: Bend the wire into a loop but before you close it with needlenose pliers, hook on the fish hook earring finding.

I have never been fond of candy corn, if it was sitting around in a bowl, it wouldn’t tempt me.  But it is so cute and whimsical and I did a Pinterest search and found all kinds of fun and kooky candy corn ideas:
