Pin It now!
I heard about this Monthly Craft Challenge over at Blue Eyed Blessings from my friend at Three A's and a C. At first I wasn't planning on participating, but I changed my mind! It sounds like a lot of fun and I am excited to see what everybody else comes up with!
I decided to make a candy ornament for our tree. (I actually made two just for fun) It was really easy and they turned out really cute!
What you need to make this ornament:
- 5 pack of gum (I couldn't find the 5 pack of Wrigley's gum anywhere, until after I had already made them of course. So I just used 5 individual sticks of gum and taped them together)
- red or green mints
- pack of lifesavers
- Hershey's kiss
I re-wrapped my mints and carmels in saran wrap because the original wrappers had writing all over them and it was bothering me. *lol*
I'm looking forward to making this ornament again when Dawson is older and he can make one too. I think it would be a fun project to do after reading him The Polar Express and while we sip on hot chocolate. (Speaking of The Polar Express, the movie is going to be on ABC Family tonight! I am so excited because I have never seen it before...crazy, I know!)
Also, I posted about another Christmas decoration that I made with my son's handprints earlier in the week. I love how it turned out and I am pretty proud of it so I'll post a picture of it here too! :-)
