Candy Corn Centerpiece

Candy Corn Centerpiece

Supplies:

  • Wine bottle (or bottle of choice)
  • White, orange and yellow spray paint
  • Ribbon for embellishment (if desired)
  • Lazy Susan (to make rotating bottle easier)

Instructions:

  1. To spray the candy corn bottle, place bottle on Lazy Susan, start with white paint at the top. Remember, with spray paint it is better to use several light coats to avoid drips. This is especially true on glass.
  2. Once the white covers the bottle and has dried about 10 minutes spray the orange, being careful not to spray over all the white but leaving an area of partial coverage to provide the gradation.
  3. Once that covers and dries repeat with the yellow around the base. Having the bottle elevated on a Lazy Susan and being able to spin them makes this project very easy.
  4. Allow it to dry well before moving or adding embellishments.
