If there’s one candy that typifies Halloween it’s the familiar orange, yellow and white candy corn. Give your sweet tooth a break by using your candy corn for other purposes: decorating! Deck the halls with this sugary sweet that promises no cavities or belly aches. Here are three ideas.

Who Needs Flowers?
Instead of flowers decorate your tables with vases filled with candy corn. Stick a few branches or other frighteningly cool decor in the candy-filled vase for a spooktacular look. Get the scoop and more party ideas over at Wants and Wishes Design blog.

Amp Up Your Centerpiece
We love this idea from Crafty Teacher Lady for its simplicity. Place votive candles on a white platter and sprinkle candy corn on the plate. The candy will add a dash of color to your centerpiece and doubles as a candy tray in case your guests get hungry before the meal arrives.
