What You’ll Need to Make Felt Candy Corn

How to Make Felt Candy Corn (Tutorial)

Step 1

Using the printable candy corn pattern, trace and cut out the felt pieces:

  • 2 base pieces (white)
  • 1 bottom layer (yellow)
  • 1 middle layer (orange)
  • 2 arms and 2 legs (yellow)

Step 2

On the orange piece of felt (middle layer), draw eyes and a mouth for the candy corn. Use a black thread to stitch along the lines.

Step 3

Take one of the base cutouts and the yellow layer (bottom layer). Place the yellow layer on top of the lower part of the base.

Using yellow thread, stitch the yellow layer to the base layer along the bottom and both sides. (You don’t need to stitch along the top side.)

Step 4

Place the orange layer (middle layer) above the yellow layer, slightly overlapping the orange layer over the top edge of the yellow layer.

Step 7

Place the stitched candy corn felt piece on the top of the second base cutout, keeping the arm and leg cutouts between the 2 base layers.

Step 8

Stitch around the side to join the 2 base cutouts, securing the arm and leg cutouts between the layers. Repeat for the right arm and leg, leaving a small opening at the top to stuff the felt candy corn. (You can use scraps of felt or Poly-fil for stuffing.)

Step 9

After stuffing the candy corn, stitch the opening shut. Tie a knot and cut off extra thread if necessary.

To turn the candy corn plush into an ornament:

Cut a small piece of ribbon and form a loop. Attach the ends of the ribbon to the back of the candy corn plush to complete the ornament.
