I began with a piece of rebar wire that I shaped into a large candy corn.

Next, I grabbed a piece of burlap

I hot glued the wire to the burlap, be careful not to burn your fingers on this one!

After gluing, I cut the burlap about 1/4" around the edge of the wire.

I folded the burlap around the back of the wire and glued it down.

At this point you may want to add a ribbon to cover the raw edge of the burlap. 

I attached the ribbon after I painted the candy corn.

Now all that is left to do is to paint my burlap shape like a candy corn.

I just eyeballed a straight line and painted 2 coats of each color onto the burlap.

I painted 3 wooden beads with white, orange and yellow as well and added them to a ribbon to hang the candy corn.

On the bottom of the candy corn I made a tassel using orange jute twine and attached it with hot glue.

This cute candy corn can be added to a wreath or hung by itself on the door!
