Ever since I made our gumball machine Christmas ornament display, I’ve had candy on my mind. I decided to add some sweet decorations to our holiday decor mix, so I made a these fun felt candy ornaments. They’re super quick and easy to make – it only took me around 30 minutes to make six candy ornaments.
What You’ll Need:
- Craft Felt, cut into 1″ wide strips (cut lengthwise so that they are as long as possible)
- Low Temperature Glue Gun
- Lollipop Sticks, cut in half
- Embroidery Floss & Needle
The ribbon candy is the easiest to make! Take your layered stack of felt and fold it to create the ribbon shape. Cut a 14″ long piece of embroidery floss, and thread it on to the needle. Insert the needle through the entire candy ribbon (from the bottom to the top) and then back down again, leaving a large loop of embroidery floss at the top for hanging. Tie the ends together in a knot at the bottom and trim any excess floss. Alternately, you could also use the glue gun to secure each ripple of the candy ribbon, but I find the embroidery floss method to be much faster and less messy!
