Last week I went to the candy store looking for something sweet and fun to add to my Candy Corn Halloween table. I thought of making a big candy corn with some Styrofoam cones that I had on hand, and then suddenly while browsing for ideas I saw some gumdrops and had a an Eureka moment! I was so excited with this amazing and what I thought it was an original idea (who I was kidding, something so easy to make and nobody had thought about it?!) that I even made a step by step tutorial. Intrigued that I had never seen anyone done it before, I made a Google search and found out that I was wrong because someone had done it before but with a Christmas tree (duh!). So, even though is not an original idea, at least is the first Gumdrop Candy Corn I have seen. That’s why we are sharing with you our tutorial and also including the link of another place you can find a good explanation and great photos about decoration with Gumdrops, the website is called Make andTakes and also is a great place to find kid’s crafts and home projects. Here is our tutorial and today’s craft. Happy Crafting day!
MATERIALS / MATERIALES
1. Styrofoam cone (cono de foam)
2. Toothpicks (palillos de madera)
3. Orange, Yellow and White Gumdrops (gomitas de dulce color anaranjado, amarillo y blanco)
Simple STEP by STEP Tutorial / Tutorial simple paso a paso
1. Cut your toothpick in half (Cortas tus palillos a la mitad).
2. Place the cut end into the Gumdrop, you need the pointy end facing out to press it into the Styrofoam.
(Introduce tu gomita de dulce a parte cortada del palillo, necesitas la parte puntiaguda hacia afuera del dulce para presionarla al foam).
3. Make three lines of orange gumdrops all around the Styrofoam. (Haz tres lineas de gomitas anaranjadas alrededor de todo el foam).
4. Do the same with the yellow ans the white gumdrops. (Haz lo mismo para las gomitas de color amarillo y las blancas).
5. At the top, place a whole toothpick living out just a small part facing out the Styrofoam. (En la parte de arriba introduce un palillo entero dejando solo una pequeña parte hacia afuera del foam).
6. Place the last White Gumdrop at the top. (Coloca la última gomita blanca en la parte de arriba del cono)
