Don’t get us wrong. We love binging on a whole bag of candy corn in one sitting while we’re DIYing costumes, menus and decor. But at some point, our dentist appears on our shoulders and reminds us that we only get one set of teeth for life. Sigh. FINE! Rather than swearing off the stuff entirely, we’re getting inspired by the classic white, orange and yellow combo, forgoing the sugar coma and making 15 non-edible DIYs that we promise won’t give you a toothache.

1. Balloon-Dipped Mason Jars: Spruce up a set of mason jars with white, yellow and orange balloons. Then serve a candy corn cocktail in them. Cheers! (via Brit + Co)

2. Candy Corn Pumpkins: In case you carved too many jack-o-lanterns — or want a no-carve festive pumpkin — paint your Halloween spirit directly onto your gourds. (via The Cottage Market)

3. Piñata:. We recommend a candy corn piñata (filled with candy corn, of course) for your Halloween party. (via Brit + Co)

4. Nail Art: Is subtlety more your speed? Bring some candy corn flair to your Halloween ensemble with a manicure of orange, yellow and white. (via Pretty Prudent)

5. Candy Corn Tie Dye: If you’re looking for a simple way to get into the Halloween spirit, here’s a little tie dye action. You could even get away with wearing this ombre tee in the “off” season. (via We Can Re-Do It)

6. Treat Jars: Looking for a clever favor? Or maybe you’re attending a boo bash and want to bring a hostess gift. Just upgrade an empty glass jar with a few stripes of paint and a handful of candy. (via Tatertots and Jello)

7. Pom Poms: By now you can make pom poms in your sleep, right? So taking on this project would be NBD. (via Live Laugh Rowe)

8. Ombre Bottles: DIY a Halloween centerpiece with a few cans of spray paint and some empty wine or beer bottles. (via Brit + Co)

9. Candy Bag: Some people might be making this for their kids, but we’re making a little sack for ourselves. So don’t be surprised when we show up on your doorstep on the 31st. (via A Lemon Squeezy Home)

10. Canvas Shoes: Pick up a pair of white Tom’s (or more wallet-friendly knock-offs) and paint each panel a different candy corn color. Digging this idea? We have no doubt that with a little brainstorming on your end, you can translate it into any holiday. (via Dream A Little Bigger)

11. Topiary: Create a sugary garden with this candy corn topiary DIY that will also double as a centerpiece. (via Southern Yankee Mix)

12. Halloween Nails: If Ellsworth Kelly was painting his nails for Halloween, we have no doubt this is what they’d look like. (via My Awesome Beauty)

13. Onesie: Remember that candy corn tie-dye tee you made earlier? Create a matching onesie for your mini-me. (via The Swell Designer)

14. Candy Corn Garland: This garland is more than candy-corn inspired. It is made with candy corn. Think of it as a massive candy necklace. (via Make and Takes)

15. Popcorn Cones: So we know we said these were all non-edible DIYs, but we just couldn’t resist this candy corn take on popcorn AND ice cream cones. (via Brit + Co)
