Pumpkin Candy Guys



I spent today making these little candy men for Kaylee to take to her first grade class closer to Halloween. The pumpkin is cut from the Mini Monsters cart. I then cut a blackout of the shape for the back of these guys. I stapled the candy to the back part and then glued the top pumpkin over that so it would cover the staples and secure it. The candy is called sixlets and you get 20 pouches in a bag at the dollar store. I think these guys are really cute, but it took a while to put them all together. I made 23 of them. I am sure Kaylee will love them.

Update: 9/26: I am linking this up to the Craft-O-Maniac Monday Link Party. You can visit the blog here: http://craftomaniac.blogspot.com/
