These Cement candy corns are fun to make and will be a great addition to your fall decor. Because they are made out of cement they are durable enough to use both inside and outside. I have made 4 of these and plan on using mine randomly outside in amongst my flowers.
- Cement ( I like to use a fast setting underlayment, It’s a little more expensive but I like that it sets within minutes of pouring.)
- cheap plastic bowl
- cheap wooden spoon
- Traffic cones from the dollar tree
- cooking spray
- paper towel
- paint ( white, orange, and yellow)
- paint brush
Step 1: Add cement to a cheap plastic bowl. Then slowly add water and mix until the cement is a slushy-like consistency.
Step 3: Pour cement into a traffic cone until even with the top. Using a paper towel dab off any excess cement. Allow drying overnight. As soon as you are finished pouring the cement, rinse bowl and spoon right away, unless you plan to throw them away. And whatever you do, DO NOT rinse in an indoor sink or down any drains. Rinse outside using a hose only… Unless you want a visit from the plumber.
Step 4: When the traffic cone is dry push edges of the traffic cone down to help release cement from traffic cone. Flip upside down and give a few taps till the cement pops out. You will have something that looks like this:
