From Funnels to Candy Corn


Funnels are one of my new collections.  

Funnels
Yesterday I found this little white enamel ware funnel for $7.  It is 3" tall and 2 7/8" across the top.  The middle sized canning funnel is 2 1/4" tall and 3 7/8" across, and the larger canning funnel is 3" tall and 5" across.



The aluminum funnels are pretty abundant, and reasonably priced so I didn't worry much about spray painting the large funnel a yellowy gold, or

Painting the middle sized funnel orange.  The middle sized funnel was also more tapered than the largest funnel making the candy corn shape more realistic.

But I drew the line on spray painting the enamel ware funnel.  Luckily it was already white!

So with all the funnel handles lined up to the rear, I have three funnels repurposed as a candy corn!  Easy!

It's cute with the handles showing too.

  1. Cute idea! I always see funnels at estate sales, but didn't think beyond the obvious uses for them.

  3. I could have looked at those funnels all day sitting right next to that container of candy corn and never come up with that idea! How do you think of these things? I've been trying to look at things with new eyes but I think I need a new brain too. I love it! I have funnels but not a one that looks like those! So cute!
