DIY Candy Corn Shirt | Halloween Shirt for Baby


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
for Halloween?
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

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"
Step 2: Fold each strip in half right sides together and sew around 3 of the edges
Step 3: Turn each strip right side out, tuck in the ends and top stitch shut
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.
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.
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.
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:)
