Candyland Party Centerpiece – Dum-Dums July 15, 2012

I’ve been working on decorations for Sophie’s Candyland Birthday party.  This dum-dum centerpiece turned out really cute!  Sophie and I made this together.  She was able to stick the dum-dums in the ball.  I counted the number of dum-dums we put in the ball for a game.  We used 167 suckers.  The kids at the party are going to guess how many dum-dums are on the ball.  They will win a smaller version of the centerpiece as their prize!

 

 

Supplies

– A large round styrofoam ball.

– 4 pounds of dum dums (we used 167).

– Candlestick

– Ribbon

 

Steps

1.)  You will need to cut down the dum dum sticks a little bit.  I cut off probably 2″ of each stick.

2.)  Stick the dum dum’s into the styrofoam ball, covering the ball entirely.

3.)  Place the ball on top of a candle stick.  (Hint:  make sure to use a candlestick that will hold the ball.  Mine is a little close, the ball barely balances on the candlestick).

4.)  Wrap the candlestick in a pretty ribbon.
