By the way, did you know that October 30 is National Candy Corn Day? A quick google search also estimated that each year, over 9 billion candy corns are eaten each year!
When people think about candy corn, most will think about traditional candy corn – yellow, orange and white. But did you know that candy corn comes in different colors depending on the holiday?
Reindeer corn for Christmas – green, white, and red, Cupid corn for Valentine’s Day – pink, red and white, Bunny corn for Easter – pastel yellow, pink, green, and lavender. You can adopt my crochet candy corn heart applique to any of these holidays!
This crochet candy corn made in the shape of a heart is another addition to my heart-shaped appliques.
