Make some clay candy corn earrings for Halloween.
Every year, the first appearance of candy corn in the grocery store signals the true beginning of fall, which means it’s time to start seriously planning our Halloween costumes. My personal favorite from childhood was the year I was a superhero, complete with shiny handmade cape and nifty boots. Of course, I kept having to tell people that, no, I was not Superman; I was Super Jessie. For this project we’ll create a piece of candy corn a bit smaller than the real kind.
Yield: 1 piece

Decide which side of your candy corn is your favorite, and place it facedown on your baking tile.
This side will be the front of your earrings. If you have fingerprints on the surface, don’t worry—they
will be mostly eliminated when you press the flat pad of your ear post into the back of the corn to
create an indentation
Bake for 15 minutes at 275° F (135° C).
To Make Candy Corn Stud Earrings
1. Make two matching candy corns.
2. Rub the front of each earring post pad over sandpaper to rough it up.
3. Rub the indentation in the back of each candy corn and the pad of each ear post with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to remove any residual surface oils and metal flecks.
4. Add a drop of cyanoacrylate glue to the front of each ear post pad, then press the pad into the
indentation in the candy corn. Wipe off any extra glue using a toothpick (not your fingers!). Let set
overnight, or for at least 6 hours.
5. If you’d like to glaze the candy corn, glaze them after they have been glued onto the posts.
