Here are 7 cool things to do with candy corn in honor of Thanksgiving being right around the corner! Nothing says “fall” or “Thanksgiving” quite like candy corn does! It’s so bright and colorful, and there are so many inventive and creative ways to use it! Some of the things to do with candy corn are actually more fun than eating it, if you can believe that! So please see my list below for 7 things to do with candy corn, and then jump in on these fabulous ideas and get started!

1 Gift It

Gift ItOne of the sweetest things to do with candy corn is to make it into a thoughtful Thanksgiving gift for a sweet friend! Put it into a pretty container and finish it with fall inspired ribbon! Or grab an old frame and some burlap, and hot glue the candy corn on in the shape of words for a unique and pretty fall decoration you can gift!

2 Make a Cute Craft

Make a Cute CraftIf you’re having a fall party, these little crafts will make cute favors! Use hot glue to attach candy corn to picture frames, all the way around, or in cute little designs. Get creative! You can also do fun candy corn crafts with little kids. An idea I saw on Pinterest was to draw monsters on paper and then use candy corn as their “teeth”!

3 Use It as a Fall Centerpiece

Use It as a Fall CenterpieceCandy corn makes such a perfect centerpiece! You can fill up a glass bowl with candy corn, then stick a candle, flowers, or whatever else strikes your fancy in there! Candy corn also looks nice spread out on a tray with various other Thanksgiving and fall-themed decorations, such as pumpkins, scarecrows, or turkeys.

4 Decorate Cupcakes with It

Decorate Cupcakes with ItForget about sprinkles, instead use candy corn as a topper for your fall cupcakes and cookies. You can even use candy corn as decorations for a cake, just spread on the icing and add the candy corn in pretty little designs!

5 Make a Fun Fall Garland

Make a Fun Fall GarlandFor this craft, you will need a needle and monofilament fishing line. Thread the candy corn onto the fishing line carefully. Don’t stick the needle in where the colors change, since the candy corn breaks easily at that point. Now string up your new fall garland and enjoy!

6 Spice up a Candle for Thanksgiving

Spice up a Candle for ThanksgivingWe all have a couple of those pillar candles sitting around, and I just read this idea on Pinterest that I can’t wait to try! Using a hot glue gun, put your candy corn on the candles in cute patterns and creative designs! It will make the candles look more festive and spruce them up if they are starting to look sad after a few years of being in storage!

7 Mix up a Batch of Trail Mix in Mason Jars

Mix up a Batch of Trail Mix in Mason JarsI love this idea for a gift or for a yummy snack to bring to fall parties. Mix up a batch of trail mix with popcorn, pretzels, M&M's, raisins, and candy corn! It will look lovely in mason jars with fall ribbon tied around the top and a lovely handwritten note to complete the gesture!

I hope this list of ideas for things to do with candy corn has been inspiring! I’m really in the Thanksgiving spirit this week, and I’m excited to try out some of these ideas for myself! What are some of your favorite ways to use candy corn? Thanks for reading!
