Candy corn and pumpkin mug hats make spooky season extra cute


Halloween decorations and a crocheted marshmallow mug hat that looks like candy corn.

Fall has so much going for it! It’s got the great weather, the pumpkin spice everything, and so many fun holidays just around the corner. To get ready for spooky season I've got two free patterns so you can get those marshmallow mugs ready.


First up is a candy corn mug hat. Now, I know there are usually two rather strong opinions about candy corn. The first is that it is utterly disgusting. The second opinion is, of course, that it is a yummy, classic Halloween candy. I used to belong in the first camp - the one that definitely did not need the calories from a so obviously second-rate candy. But then someone introduced me to candy corn AND peanuts, together. Just pop one piece of candy corn into your mouth at the same time as two to three salted peanuts and be prepared for a new fall obsession. The salty and the sweet at the same time - mmmmmmmmm. It's now an absolute favorite in my house.

Two marshmallow mugs wearing hats that look like a pumpkin - on with a crocheted stem and one with a stem make from a stick.

The second mug hat is a pumpkin. A classic, perfect-for-fall pumpkin. I used an actual stick for the stem in one and crocheted a stem for the other. The pattern for the crocheted version is available down below. And, of course, the pumpkin could be used all fall. Or make both the candy corn and the pumpkin hats and enjoy the heck out of autumn!
