DIY: Candy Sticks

Party favors or Easter basket treats!
When your budget doesn't allow for purchases of those beautiful, often times costly candy sticks you sometimes
see on your favorite party blogs, what do you do!? No need for concern, I am here to tell you, you can still have great candy sticks when you do~it~yourself! These are super easy and inexpensive to make yourself .With grocery store candy and items you have on hand, you too can present fabulous candy sticks at your party!...

We found cute gummy rabbits at the grocery store, and used left over green mint leaf gummy candy, treat bags, skewer sticks and scrap material.
 This is what we did.
We cut the long skewer stick down some, so they were a petite version, skewered on the green gummy mint leaf and then the gummy rabbit{careful not to poke yourself}. Placed the candy stick inside the treat bag and tied it up with a scrap piece of material.

These make fun, inexpensive Easter basket treats and, the perfect little party favor!

You can make these with just a few pieces of candy like we did, or you can load them up anyway you like!
With a little creativity, and a few supplies, you can make a big impression on a little budget!

Have we inspired you to come up with some of your own ideas!?
We hope we have! And, we would love for you to show us what you come up with!
 Send us your pictures please!
