Halloween / Fall Wreath Tutorial

It has been so long since I've had a decent DIY to share with you guys! I am so excited to show you guys how to make this beautiful fall wreath!
This wreath cost me a total of $7.00 to make, and only took one evening (about two hours total). It's ridiculously easy, and turned out really cute! It was only on my door for about a day when a neighbor asked where I bought it from. 

To make this wreath you'll need to pick up a few things:
Styrofoam wreath  - Hobby lobby $4.00)
Candy Corn - 2 bags $2.00 (dollar tree)
Hot glue Sticks -$1.00 (for a package of 31 at Wal-Mart)
Ribbon - $1.00 (either purchased at Hobby Lobby or Wal-Mart, I can't remember, I had it on hand)

How to do it:
1. Finding the ends (usually the part where you can tell it was glued together), start there, gluing down your candy corn as you go. You will want your ends to face each other. Do not go completely around the Styrofoam! This is my secret, but it helps the wreath lie flat if you don't. 
2. Continue to glue your candy corn down in the same pattern as before, ends touching ends, and white tops facing white tops. After a time or two around, it will start to twist a little bit. This is totally fine. Continue until you finish the wreath.
3. You may or may not have the ends all meet up. If not, great, because you get to cover that up with the ribbon! Using your hot glue, glue the ribbon down first. Then, separately, make your loop to hang the wreath with. Lastly, make your bow and hot glue that down as well. Let dry, and test out the loop to make sure it holds - this wreath gets HEAVY! I was surprised how heavy it got!
4. Display your wreath proudly and enjoy the leftover candy corn! You deserve it!
