Dentist's Beware: Halloween candy garland tutorial

I hope you're craving something sweet today because I have a fun and sugary inspired Halloween garland for you guys that you can easily make yourself. It is inexpensive and takes an hour to make. It will make you one step closer to rocking your candy socks off this Halloween. True story.


 You will need: a pair of scissors, Styrofoam glitter balls (which can be found in the floral section of Michaels) Spray adhesive, Cellophane wrap, black and white felt, a needle and string. 



In order to make the black and white candies you simply cut your felt into strips and roll them up sushi style (I used a little bit of spray adhesive to make the layers stick together) and then you simply wrap them in the cellophane wrap.


I then wrapped up silver and orange Styrofoam glitter balls in the same cellophane wrap to create smaller pieces of candy.



I laid out the order in which I wanted to string them and used my needle and string to connect them. I also used a bit of washi tape in between the candy to give it an extra bit of personality.




It's so much fun and it resembles the candy garland I purchased years ago from the Department 56 collection which cost me $40. This garland only cost me $10 because I used coupons. Not a bad price for some extra Halloween spirit.

So what do you guys think? Does it make you want to jump up and down on a sugar rush? You can thank me for that image later.

Have a fantastic day! See you lovelies on Friday with a contest winner.

  1. get outta here with these! I have 2 pumpkins and garland made out of fake leaves on my front porch, that's the extent of my decorating this year and then you have to go and do this (and look smokin' hot in every.single.one. of your Instagram pics) NO FAIR! but I still really love you. xo
