How to make a DIY candy corn necklace:
Start by spraying your jewelry mold with the mold release and conditioner. Allow to dry completely.
While that dries, measure and mix your resin according to the package directions. Be sure to follow the two cup mixing procedure and mix the entire time indicated. Wear protective gloves during all the steps that deal with resin. Once mixed, you can pour into your dry mold. Be sure to only fill about 2/3 full.
Drop your candy corn in about 30 minutes after pouring the resin. It will sink in but may stick out a little at the top. That is okay! We will cover that with another layer of resin later. Set this aside and allow to cure. Be sure you keep the mold level while curing.
Once cured, measure and mix the second batch of resin. This time drop in a small drop of both yellow and red transparent dye then a drop of white opaque dye. Mix well. Pour in a thin layer on top of your candy corn. This time you will want to make sure the candy corn is completely covered. Allow to cure again being sure to keep the mold level.
Then pop out of your mold.
You have now preserved candy corn in resin and it is the perfect size to make a cute necklace.
Add a necklace back to each piece using jewelry glue.
Then thread in a necklace chain and your DIY candy corn necklace is complete.
Add this project to your fall outfit or even as an accessory on Halloween.
This fun necklace is a great conversation piece and everyone will want to know how you made it! You don’t even have to tell them how easy it is!
