Sugar Rush

A perfect example of what to do with that extra stash of Halloween sweets. Just one thing: Please don’t eat the props.

Supplies:

  • Dry erase marker in a light color
  • Candy: black and white licorice pinwheels; coconut jelly beans; black licorice jelly beans
  • Hot glue gun


Instructions:
1. Using your marker, first create a design. This marker allows you to draw, rinse, and repeat as many times as you'd like. We picked one floral pattern to repeat across the pumpkin.

2. Once you’re happy with your pattern, use your glue gun and adhere the candy to the pumpkin’s surface. Set aside to dry for at least 24 hours so that the candy can set in place.
