You will Need: Styrofoam balls...you can find them in a bag in different sizes in the Dollar Tree or one size packs at Hobby Lobby. Of course the Dollar Tree has the right price and also the different sizes in one bag. I also found long "tubes" of styrofoam at Hobby Lobby to make the flat "candies" with. If you are making a wreath or garland or the candies will be where someone might try to eat one, you will need shrink wrap..(.you can find a shrink wrap for baskets at the Dollar Tree)... some strong string and you'll need a heat gun or hair dryer to shrink the wrap.
|If you're making the flat "candies" with the tubes you will need a styrofoam cutter or a finely serrated knife to slice pieces about 1/4" thick . .|
|Place the styrofoam on skewers and apply a thin coat of mod podge or white glue. Once that's dry paint in the color of your choice. You can use regular paint or enamel paint. For the flat pieces I just copied the design from a real candy.|
