DIY Tutorial: Gummy Candy Skewers

Do you have a beach party coming up? These are oh-so-clever Gummy Candy Skewer favors for a “Preppy Beach Party”.

One of the best things about this favor idea is that it can easily be tailored to other themes too… For example: gummy tropical fruit skewers for luau theme, spiders/frogs/worms for Harry Potter or Halloween parties, butterflies for fairy parties, etc… so many options!

DIY Tutorial: Gummy Candy Skewers

YOU’LL NEED: Gummy candy (I used rainbow fish, sharks, hammer head sharks, lobsters, and starfish – all purchased at bittermancandy.com) bakers twine (purchased at Target) craft punch (Martha Stewart crab punch from Michaels) cardstock bamboo skewers clear bags (I used 4×6 bags from Hobby Lobby) scissors small hole punch

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Insert gummy candies onto the skewer, alternating from one style to the next. (Make it about an inch shorter than your clear bag so you have some room to tie the bag at the bottom.)

Tip: Only insert the skewer half way through the top gummy. This will ensure that the point of the skewer isn’t sticking out.

2. Punch out little critters with the craft punch and colored cardstock.
