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. And 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.
