I think crafting brings our family closer together. We all enjoy working on an exciting new project especially holiday-themed crafts.
When I saw an episode of the Martha Stewart show with the cutest little girl helping Martha make Halloween candy people, I just knew we had to try it as a family.
lollipops for the heads,
boxed candies for the bodies,
and long skinny candies like tootsie rolls, twizzlers, or sweet-tarts for the arms & legs.
Everything is glued together with a low temp. melt hot glue gun.
On the show, they also used halloween stickers to stick onto the lollipops for faces...but I was lucky to find Halloween lollys with the faces on them.
My girl took 20 of these 'candy people' to her school's Halloween party and they were a big hit with her friends.
