Guess what everybody?! Its September, the beginning of my favorite season, FALL! The cool breeze, natural colors, and last but not least, Halloween! As a mom, Halloween has a whole new meaning to me now. It means dressing my little guy up in something adorable and showing him off door to door to all my neighbors all whilst receiving free candy that mommy and daddy get to enjoy later. (;
So in my desire to get ready for Halloween I have begun to create small little crochet decor items I can place in random areas around my house. I was never really into decorating before, but Jude makes everything more fun, so I have to. Plus it gives us something new to look at. And since all I see in the stores are fall/halloween (and even some Christmas?!) decorations, I decided to make some of my own!
You can expect a lot more holiday themed patterns coming your way over the next few months, and I am SUPER excited about it! I have plenty of ideas, and feel free to leave me a comment with an idea you have for something I should make!
So in my fall inspired daze I came home from Michaels with these, and then created this adorable little candy corn decoration!
This cute sized Candy Corn is the perfect small decoration for any home! I have mine sitting on my kitchen table next to some other fall/halloween inspired things. Get creative and use different sized hooks and yarn for different sized candy corn!

Switch to White for next row.
Row 17: ch 1, sc in each st around
Row 18: ch 1, *sc in next 3, sc dec.* repeat
Row 19: ch 1, sc in each st around
Row 20: ch 1, *sc in next 2, sc dec.*

Row 22: sc dec around
The top should be fairly tight now, finish off leaving a long tail, and use a yarn needle to thread the yarn around, closing the hole, and hiding it in the middle of your work. It should look a little something like this:
