These are a Little Candy Corny

It’s October, so I’ve decided to devote the next few weeks worth of Pinterest craft projects to Halloween…  The first one I chose was for Candy Corn Wine Bottle Vases.

This was a really straight forward project.  First I gathered my supplies.  I used 3 empty wine bottles, yellow spray paint, orange spray paint, white spray paint, clear glaze, and some clearance silk flowers.

I cleaned the wine bottles and removed all of the stickers and glue from the exterior of the bottles.  Then I coated all 3 bottles in white spray paint.

Then I let them dry completely.  Once they were totally dry I covered all 3 bottles 2/3 of the way up with yellow.

Once the yellow was dry I came back and covered the bottom 1/3 with the orange paint.

When all 3 colors were completely dry I sprayed them with a clear glaze to prevent chipping.

When the glaze was dry, I cut down and added the silk flowers.

If you’ve read any of my other posts, you know that I’m not so good at following directions exactly.  So, my final product is slightly different than the one I found on Pinterest.  The bottom color on Pinterest was yellow, I made it orange.  Can anyone tell me which is correct?  Is candy corn white-yellow- orange or white-orange-yellow?


I’m not the best at following directions exactly, so my final product looks different than the ones I found on Pinterest.  (I put the orange on the bottom, they had the yellow.)
