Let’s make a DIY Candy Corn Shirt. I love candy corn! It is so yummy and pretty much the cutest candy- especially when little miss is the one wearing the shirt:) Really though- doesn’t it just get you in the mood
It goes along with a few of my other Halloween makes like the DIY Pumpkin Shirt.

Candy Corn Shirt Materials:
- T-shirt (mine is from the Dollar Tree)
- Fabric scraps in brown, yellow, orange, and white
- Black embroidery floss (optional)
- Sewing supplies
Candy Corn Shirt Instructions
Candy Corn Shirt Step 1: Cut out your pieces. You can really do them any size you want- the amount of ruffle will just change slightly. Make the pieces short than mine for less ruffles, longer for more ruffles.
- Candy Corn- 6″ wide x 5″ tall
- Yellow- 8″x3″
- Orange- 7″x3″
- White- 5″x4″
Candy Corn Shirt Step 2: Fold each strip in half right sides together and sew around 3 of the edges
Candy Corn Shirt Step 3: Turn each strip right side out, tuck in the ends and top stitch shut
Candy Corn Shirt Step 4: Add a row of basting stitches to each strip about 1/2″ from the top. Gather until each strip is the correct width to fit your candy corn piece.
Candy Corn Shirt Step 5: Pin the gathered white section to the candy corn and sew the sides and top (right over your basting stitches) to the candy corn- make sure you leave enough room around the edge to sew your candy corn to the shirt. Repeat with the orange and yellow sections.
Candy Corn Shirt Step 6: Stitch your candy corn to the shirt using a zig-zag or applique stitch. (Make sure you only sew onto the top layer of the shirt!) Sorry the stitches don’t really show up in that picture, but I promise it’s pretty easy.
Candy Corn Shirt Step 7: If you want to add a little extra something- you know I did:) then use your embroidery floss to add “Trick or Treat” below the candy corn.
I really love how this turned out! I wasn’t too sure when I started making it up(there were a few rough patches along the way as usual),but now little miss and I are set for Halloween and can’t wait:)

Adorable! Now if only there were a boy version, because I’m not having another baby for a while…I don’t think my son would thank me for putting him in ruffles!
