A New Twist On An Old Favorite

Good afternoon sweet friends.
Yesterday was a lazy Saturday for me.
After Bob and I went to an estate sale, 
I went grocery shopping, did the laundry
and caught up on tv shows I had on our DVR.

It was a relaxing day for sure,
but my mind wandered again to Halloween.

So I once again took pencil and paper,
and drew up a candy corn, and sewed a few up.

A sweet confection of white, orange and yellow.

Created black jack-o-lanterns out of wool.

Stuffed the candy corns.

Stitched the jack on the candy corn.

Attached the brown flecked wool stem using 
both a blanket stitch and running stitch.

For a twist on an old favorite.
Do you like candy corns?
What is your favorite Halloween candy?
Mine are Mallow Cups.
A chocolate coconut treat my sister and I loved.
We kept the little square card which had points on it.
We saved those cards to use for prizes in the catalog.
Today if you purchase these candies,
the goal is to save 500 points and receive
$2.00 back in the mail.

Candy Corn and Mallow Cup Blessings To All!


  1. I used to save those point cards, too. What a memory!
    Hugs :)

  2. Yep! Love Mallow cups and used to save the point cards, too! M-mm, so glad Mallow cups still being made and sold, yummy!

  3. I don't think we had them in Wisconsin when I was growing up - the first time I had one was at Lookout Mountain, TN when I was six or seven (can't remember my grocery list, but candy from youth - no problem! Lol). Your candy corn is adorable. Favorite Halloween candy? Those peanut butter taffies that come in black and orange wrappers. And the little boxes of milk duds!

  4. Hi Janice, love your cute Candycorn. We don't have the Mallow cups here but I do love Rockets still, yummy.Blessings Francine.

  5. Love your candy corn with the pumpkin! So cute...hope you're gathering stuff for the Holly show! I haven't even begun to start making things.....gathered a few things to's always last minute for me!!
