Graduation Cap Candy for Decor

Thanks to Pinterest I came across this adorable candy grad hat idea, and several similar ones using different types of candy, marshmallows dipped in chocolate, all kinds of things!

(Please see my Pinterest - Graduation Idea's   Board to see where I found this inspiring idea)

I decided it was time to get started on my decorations and first up..

Graduation Cap Candy.

So I got my bag of Reeses mini size candies, colored scrapbook paper, my hot glue gun,
paper punch, and some yarn.

I started by cutting out small squares, punched some tiny circles, and cut small pieces of white yarn.

Then simply assembled them by gluing the paper square onto the bottom of the candy piece,
then the piece of yarn, and lastly the little punched circle.

Cute! (and simple)

I like how they are decorative and also a fun treat for the graduation parties coming up.

I think they will look neat displayed in a jar on a table, or even scattered around laying on the buffet table.
I haven't decided yet. :0)

Rolo candy would work well for this project as well, and I like that you can make a bunch of these in a short amount of time.
