Ice Cream Sundae
For this project, you need two dollar store bowls and some cellophane wrap. I used a glue gun to hot glue two of the bowls together and repeated this process with multiple bowls.
I cut a piece of cellophane wrap so it would wrap all the way around the two bowls. Next I cut some twine and pinched the ends so it looked like a wrapped piece of candy.
I repeated this process for all the bowls.
For this next project, I used two large bowls and a pool noodle.
I used a serrated knife to cut the pool noodle into small pieces.
I hot-glued the bottom of both large bowls together. I placed the pool noodles into the bowl to make sure I had enough, then I placed the pool noodles into a kitchen garbage bag and put that in the bowls.
I hot glued small ball ornaments on top of each one to make ice cream sundaes.
For the next project, you will need a red pool noodle and some athletic tape.
I wrapped the pool noodle with white athletic tape. I wrapped the fishing line around the pool noodle to bend it into the shape of a candy cane. The fishing line is clear, so it is not noticeable.
For this project, I used plastic plates, large wooden skewers, and paint pens in different colors.
I started by hot gluing the skewer along the middle of the plate and then gluing two plates’ right sides together
I used paint pens to make a swirl shape to create lollipop ornaments and repeated this to make several for my yard.
Last year I made this hopscotch with pavers and paint. I’m placing those in my yard now to create this Candyland display.
If you don’t want to paint pavers you could use sidewalk chalk and color your sidewalk.
For this next project, I had some candle holders and I placed broom handles into each one.
I took three pool noodles wrapped them with tape and then hot glued them all together.
I slid the pool noodles onto the broom handles to create an archway.
Let’s take a tour and see everything set up!
Now it’s time to put everything in place. I placed the lollipops alongside my walkway and the sundaes on either side of my front door on upside down flower pots.
I took my paint pens and added a few dashes as sprinkles on my ice cream.
You might remember these cones that I spray painted for some holiday games, now I’m placing them along my walkway for my Candyland.
I placed my pavers into the grass forming a walkway to my front door. I placed the candy and lollipop decorations on either side of the walkway. I staked skewers into the ground and added the candy canes to each one, all along the walkway.
Other Candyland decorations you could create or add include:
- gingerbread houses made out of cardboard boxes
- a candy tree with an artificial Christmas tree on your front porch filled with cupcake ornaments, candy cane ornaments, gumdrop ornaments
- Christmas wreaths
- ice cream cones instead of sundaes
- a gumdrop tree out of styrofoam balls
- gingerbread men
- cake pop lollipops instead of my paper plate lollipops
- candy garland
