Candy Corn Candlesticks

This is such a quick, easy project!
 Here's what you'll need: 
  • Elmer's glue
  • orange, white, and yellow paint
  • paint brush
  • wooden candle cups (I got a package of 6 at Michaels for $3)
  • black candles
  • sand paper
 First, paint the cups - 2 orange, 2 white, and 2 yellow.

 Let them dry, then glue the orange and yellow together with regular old school glue, like this:
 Now glue the white one on top, like this:
 Use sand paper to give a distressed look.
 I sprayed mine with top coat to give it a little shine and finish it off.
 Stick in some black candles, and you have candy corn candlesticks to add to your Halloween decor!
You can make them larger or smaller, depending on how many you stack.  It would be fun to make red and white ones for Valentine's day, or change them up for any holiday.  You could also tie ribbon around them.  The possibilities are endless!  This would be a great project for kids, too!
