I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starburst. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Now that it’s Fall, it’s time to decorate the house for the holidays! First comes spooky stuff, then harvest colors and finally a month of the holly jolly, but slow down… I’m just starting level one.
I was inspired to make a Halloween craft with Starburst Candy Corn which incidentally is nothing like its nasty predecessor. It tastes like Starburst fruit chews, just as fruity but not as chewy.
So the whole Starburst candy corn crafts idea comes from Tori Spelling, and everyone loves Tori Spelling!
Seriously, the gal is a crafting whiz-bang. Look at her Fall candy craft projects!
Wait, there’s more. She’s outta control with ideas!
So I looked at her wonderful Halloween craft project ideas and decided to make something too: a Halloween mixed media collage of sorts. I don’t know what to call it!
It’s a Halloween shadow box, I guess??
There’s no right and wrong with this craft, so just kinda go where you go with it. I’ll just tell you what I did and you take it from there. Be simple, be elaborate, be whimsical, be terrifying… it’s completely up to you.

Wood letters (B-O-O)
Miscellaneous Halloween trinkets and decor
Starburst Candy Corn
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
I sprayed the frame and the B-O-O letters with two coats of black spray paint and let them dry completely.
Then I took my sheet of heavyweight scrapbook paper and hot glued it to the center of the frame for a background. I fell in love with this pretty chevron-patterned paper the moment I saw it in the store.
Candy time! Hot glue the candy corn pieces onto the B-O-O letters in any way you’d like. I just glued whatever I grabbed.
Then hot glue those letters onto your paper background. Don’t burn your fingers like I did, mmmkay?
Now it’s time to be creative. Use the hot glue to attach your Halloween embellishments any which-a-way you’d like in, on and around your shadow box display.
I am so in love with this black crow I found. He attaches with a clip to the frame edge, so I can move his perching spot on a whim.
Hang your spooky shadow box on a wall and start the haunting!
