Imitation

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"...I hope!

I saw this adorable candy corn at Chapman Place:

I have a candy-corn-loving sister, so I knew I had to try to make some for her. My version is considerably more "rustic" looking; obviously I haven't mastered the use of the jigsaw yet! But they still turned out pretty cute.

I hope she likes them!

The beadboard I had on hand from another project. The 2x6 board was from the cull bin at Home Depot. I had to buy three new colors of craft paint ($1/each), but the other stuff I had on hand!

I think you did a wonderful job recreating my candycorn. Love it! I like that you used bigger nails... Cute, cute, cute!

These are so cute! I love how bright and vibrant your colors are! Also, I don't think I've ever actually had candy corn!

Thanks for linking up!
