How to Make a Candy Corn Topiary
I made this candy corn topiary as a video tutorial for my TikTok page, so I don’t have complete step-by-step photos for you, but I do have all the information you need in video form, and also written form for added help! (PS I LOVE TikTok and am praying that it isn’t banished from the U.S.!)

Candy Corn Topiary Written Instructions
Step one: cut yellow flowers short so that only a small part of the stem remains. Press yellow flowers into the base of the floral cone, about 1/3 of the way up the cone.
Step two: repeat this process with the orange flowers, and then with the white flowers. (Note: if any of the flowers don’t have stems that easily push into the floral foam, simply hot glue them to the cone like I did for the white flowers.)
Step three: push a dowel into the bottom of the floral foam cone. Then, press the other end of the dowel into another piece of floral foam, which will rest inside the pot or container.
Step four: tie a bow on the dowel, just underneath the floral foam cone.
Step five: hot glue floral moss on top of the floral foam in the pot or container.
