Candy Corn Toss

We’re having a Fall Festival thingie (for lack of a better term) at our church on Sunday evening, and I was asked to make a sign for the Greeter Ministry booth.  The Greeter booth is going to be a Candy Corn Toss.

I got out all my supplies, ribbon, chalk, cotton, glue, etc.  I had NO idea what I was going to do, only that I wanted to be creative and make a cute sign.

I started with a piece of white posterboard (Which by the way, did y’all know posterboard is now $1.19?  It was like .50c when I was in school!  This is highway robbery!)

Then I cut some letters using my Cricut machine.  I happened to have in my inventory, some paper that looked like candy corn, so I used that!

Chalk and paints….still at this point, not sure what of these supplies I was going to use, ha-ha.

I decided I wanted my poster to look somewhat “old” or “antique”, which meant I needed to chalk the edges in brown.

Then, I set my letters.

Added some ribbon to the board and tied a piece of ribbon to the “o” in corn.  You can NEVER have too much ribbon.  I’m convinced.

I’m excited to see all the other signs too and can’t wait for the festival!

  8. It turned out so cute! Our church used to have a fall festival for the kiddos but the past two years haven't done one. It's sad because I think D would love all of the fun booths...especially a candy corn toss. :)
