Christmas Trees and Candy Corn

Do you remember these ? The Small Object had a tutorial in 2007 on these adorable tree's. I found the tutorial last year and made a few for my tree.

Well, those cute little tree's inspired these....Simple too! Here's a quick tutorial. 3 fabric scraps...
Ironed a medium weight Interfacing to the wrong side
Printed out the pattern from The Small Object and cut the half circles out...
Fold them to make the cone shape. I made a short little straight stitch to keep the cone secure.
Do all three and stack em up. I tied a bit of string to a button, forming a loop. Insert the loop through the top of the cone, button on the inside.
Way cute Candy Corn!

I went crazy making these little trees last year for my friends. They were so fun and easy to make; a really quick project that I needed after doing so much quilting (which takes a long time, as you know).

I love them as candy corn! How cute!!! I would have never thought of doing that. Thanks for the idea!

By the way, I have candy corn on my blog today. I think you will like it. It's a tutorial, too! :)

They are so cute in orange. You could do black and call them witches hats. I made a bunch of them last year. They were so fun.
