Candy corn. It’s that too-sweet treat that’s hard to stop eating even when it stings your teeth a little bit. Even if you don’t eat it, you see it everywhere during the Halloween season, and you can’t help but notice its sticky, yummy goodness because of the bright pops of color it exudes. That’s why candy corn is great inspiration for crochet. In this post you’ll find photos of candy corn crochet to inspire your autumn crafting.
