1. Classic Hard Giant Candy Discs (Paper Plates)
Materials used: large paper plates, ribbon, scissors, cellophane sheet, glue gun with hot glue, rubber band, paint, and paintbrushes, tulle
Procedure: Glue two plates and paint both the outer sides. Let it dry. Then paint it anything you like in the middle. Even if the painting is not up to the mark, it will look amazing after wrapping. Wrap it with tulle and tie tightly with the rubber band. Finally, cover it with the cellophane paper and tie it with a colorful ribbon.
2. Sour Fruit Balls And Sixlets
Materials used: Plastic toy balls, ribbon, rubber band, scissors, cellophane sheet.
Procedure: Wrap the plastic balls with cellophane and tie with ribbon. If you have some identical balls, you can take four or five together to make six let packets. Even there are balls with prints and designs, you still can use them for decoration.
3. Spiral Lollipops (Pool noodles)
Materials used: Pool noodles, giant rubber bands, wooden dowel, colored tape, and duct tape, hot glue, glue gun, ribbon, ribbon, string, scissors, white paint, and paintbrush
Procedure: Wrap any tape, colored, or duct around the pool noodles in a spiral pattern. The next step is a little complicated. Make the spirals and secure them with hot glue. Be extra careful while doing this. It needs some force and patience. Wrap it continuously and secure it with large rubber bands till it gets dried.
Next, insert a wooden dowel such that it pokes right. Either before or after entering the dowel, color it white. Finally, wrap it up with tulle and cellophane and tie it with the ribbon in bow pattern.
4. Ginger Breadman
Materials used: Cardboard, pencil, puffy paint, brown paint, and paintbrush, scissors
Procedure: You can use the leftover cardboard for it if you have. Draw a gingerbread man and cut it out from the board. You will get hundreds on the internet. Then paint it with brown color and wait till dry. Use puffy-paint to decorate. This will enhance the effect. Puffy paint takes longer to dry. Don’t be in a hurry.
5. Old Fashioned Stick Candy (Giant Candy)
Materials used: Cardboard carpet tube, ribbon, rubber bands, cellophane, hand saw, colorful tape
Procedure: First, cut the cardboard tube with a hand saw. Decide the measurement of the pieces on the availability of the tube. It could be 2-3 feet long. Color it brightly. Wrap around the tube with tape in a spiral pattern and then wrap again with cellophane and tie with ribbon.
