Candy Corn Tussie Mussie

I saw the cutest thing ever yesterday. 
I received my Oriental Trading Handmade Autumn catalog and devoured it up in 15 minutes.  On page 4, I feasted my eyes on a delightful sight.

A Candy Corn Tussie Mussie

On-line you can see the page if my reference goes thru above.  They'll sell that set of templates just based off of the 2 projects they show on the page (there is a coffin too).

Box Template II is a set of 12 templates for $10 and 1 of them is a "Cone Treat Hanger Template"  A customer below says this is the only place she's seen them and they are really good, thick quality.  I may have to order a set myself.

Cuteness  It looks like they used a coffee filter to stuff into the cone to put the candy canes into.  They used ribbon and rick-rack yumminess.  I love the ruffled affect at the top of the cone.

I may make 2 for my boys and stuff with candy and surprise them closer to Halloween season.  I'm certainly gonna keep the tussie mussie idea for all the colored candy corns that come out at Christmas, Valentines, Easter and the Fall season.  How sweet to color coordinate the candy to the mussie!!

Also...Crafters be aware that the catalog is chock full of gorgeous beads to do your jewelry.  I even saw a John Deere Tractor bead. :0)

I'm playing along today at some memes:

    I haven't seen you in a while. I love those tussie mussies!
    I didn't know they had a different catalog for home made things! I have to go check that out!
