Last week, I spent the entire week in zombie land. Ryan was out of town Tuesday – Saturday and the kids being a little under the weather/teething meant that neither of them slept. Needless to say, I didn’t get a whole lot done, and the time I did have to get stuff done, I just couldn’t seem to think or be able to get anything productive done. Have you ever been so bone tired? I’m so happy that it is a new week.
During nap time one day, I grabbed some gum drops and decided to play around with them a little bit. Again, I wasn’t very productive. I had some candy corn sitting out, so the idea struck me to make candy corns with gum drops and toothpicks! Because I used toothpicks, I definitely do not recommend this craft for kids unless they are older. I stuck myself a couple of times making these. I thought they turned out cute and they would make a fun little Halloween party decoration or activity.
Orange, Yellow and White Gum Drops
Using 6 toothpicks, make a 3D shaped triangle and hold them together with the gum drops.
That’s it! It is so easy, but it was fun. I’m always looking for cheap decor or easy DIYs to make our home festive. Bonus points when you can eat your craft!
