I saw these candy cupcake toppers and knew they would be perfect for Sophie’s Candyland party. They turned out really cute and were really easy to make!
1.) Small foam balls. I got mine at Michaels. A bag of 16 balls, size 15/16″ cost $3.99. USE A COUPON to get 40% off!
2.) Tissue Paper
1.) Cut small pieces of tissue paper. I used pieces about 4″x3″.
2.) Place a dab of glue on a foam ball.
3.) Roll the tissue paper around the ball.
4.) Secure the tissue paper with a second dab of glue.
5.) Allow the glue to try for a few minutes.
6.) Twist each end of the ball.
7.) Trim the tissue paper down so it looks like a candy wrapper.
8.) Fluff the ends.
9) Insert a toothpick into the center of each ball.

Substitutions: I did tie a few pieces with thread, but then I decided I was wasting time. Also, I didn’t put glue on the toothpicks. I just pushed them into the styrofoam ball. I felt they were secure enough!
Time: One minute per ball.
