Candy Wrapper Beads

OK, I'm sure these aren't the most original beads out there (I didn't look around, but I'm sure someone out there has done something on this level...), but they are super easy to make and super fun.

Candy Wrapper Beads


Have I mentioned how much I love candy?  Well, I do.  So it should come as no surprise that I have a ziploc bag full of candy wrappers.  Mmm-hmmm.  Dum-dum lollipops, Tootsie Pops, Mary Janes... my collection keeps growing.

So these are super simple to make. Here's what you need:

  • Mod Podge (of course!!!)
  • candy wrappers of your choice
  • wooden beads
  • small paintbrush
  • wooden skewer/chopstick/straw/etc.
Start by cutting a piece of wrapper that is long enough to wrap around your bead, and has extra at the top and bottom:

Making Candy Wrapper Beads

Brush some Mod Podge on the wrong side of the wrapper, and wrap it around the bead.

Making Candy Wrapper Beads

Apply some more Mod Podge to the ends, and use a thin object (I used the opposite end of the paintbrush) to press the ends of the wrapper into the holes of the bead.  Make sure to press the ends carefully so that they don't rip.  Then once you've got the ends all tucked in, use your fingers and press the wrapper down to smooth out the bumps and wrinkles.


Making Candy Wrapper Beads

To finish the bead, stick it on the end of a chopstick, or something similar, and give it a coat or two of some more Mod Podge.

Making Candy Wrapper Beads

Make a bunch, let 'em dry, and you've got some cute little candy beads!  I haven't made anything with mine yet... but I'll come up with something!

Michelle L. said...

Cute! Wow, I haven't had a dum-dum in years. Love the retro feel of these.

Kymberly said...

I love this craft, I eat dum dums and I too keep every wrapper in a ziplock bag, I thought of decoupaging the wrappers to a medium or large button and making a ring out of it by gluing it to a ring setting but I also love the idea of using the wrappers for beads, THANKS FOR THE TIP!
