Candy Corn Table Topper is a Quick and Easy Project
This Will be Lovely in Your Favorite Colors and for Other Seasons!
Welcome autumn with this quick-to-make table topper. Select autumn-themed fabrics, such as the candy corn prints used here. Or, dig into your stash and choose a combination of fall colors. Before you know it you’ll have a lovely topper to display all autumn long.
This classic topper pattern will be charming made up in fabrics for other seasons, too. We can easily imagine it in Christmas colors and in spring pastels. It will also be lovely in fabrics that match your decor.
While the following examples are slightly different, with 4 rows instead of 5, they show how pretty this will be made up for other seasons and the holidays. They also show how you can play with color placement for different effects.

Simple strip piecing makes construction a breeze. Once you have sets of fabric strips sewn together, use the 60 degree line on your ruler to cut them into triangles. Everything is clearly illustrated in the tutorial from Karen Meyer of Sister of the Divide.
The finished size is about 23″ in diameter. You can easily make it larger or smaller by adding more fabric strips to the strip set or by altering the width of the strips used.

Did the Candy Corn Table Topper featured on September 3rd issue. It was easy and fun! Used Christmas prints and it came out wonderfully well! Thank you for the feature!
Made the candy corn table topper today using Halloween prints. Very quick and pretty. However, I’m having difficulty with the binding. How should the 6 “points” of the hexagon be done–Nothing looks right! Any tips most welcome!
