Christmas Treat Pops

Christmas Treat Pops

MATERIALS USED: 

  1. Plastic Fill- able Ornaments (I would recommend checking for food safe ones) find some like the ones I used –> HERE
  2. Green M&M’s
  3. Red M&M’s
  4. Jumbo Craft Sticks HERE
  5. Construction paper
  6. Hot glue and glue gun
  7. scissors
  8. Chenille stems- brown & Gold
  9. Red pom pom
  10. Dollar store child size sock
  11. Green Feathers
  12. Wiggle Eyes
  13. Ribbon (Christmas and black)
  14. Small Buttons
  15. black sharpie
  16. Marshmallows and Malt balls

DIRECTIONS:

Start off by filling half of your (cleaned food safe) Ornament with candy filler, once filled place a sheet of construction paper over top and flip ornament with candy in it over. Run a bead of hot glue along the edge of the ornament and construction paper. Once glue is cooled cut the excess paper away from the ornament. Hot glue on craft stick and other items to each ornament as desired, use a sharpie to finish the Grinch face and the Snowman face.

(Note- I recommend checking for ornaments that are food safe. The backing used was construction paper but for health purposes you may consider checking for other food safe materials or putting a liner between the candy and paper, such as wax paper)

NOTE- for the video I used 100mm ornaments but if you are doing this for a classroom party I would recommend going with slightly smaller ornaments to keep your candy cost down 😉 and they still turn out super cute

    How does the glue hold the paper on??

      Hi there, when you run a bead of glue along the side of the paper and ornament it secures the 2 together (without leaking on to the food items) then when you go to cut it out, you cut just on the outside of the glue bead (which leaves about a 1/8″ of glue/paper section on the outside edge of the ornament)

    That would be so much fun, but none of the schools let us bring in any edible treats any more!!

    I cannot find Christmas socks or even solid red/green socks. What else can be used instead of socks?

      Hi there, I found the socks used at my local dollar store, you might also look for a small doll hat or if you are unable to find what you are needing- Amazon has some socks on their cite as well here http://amzn.to/2fFHEjA
      I hope that helps a bit, I am unsure what would be simple to use if not socks.

    Hello I’m getting ready to order my question is did you use acrylic or plastic Im afraid the plastic would melt from the hot glue??

    1. Sheena (Post author)

      Hi there, I believe the ones I used said acrylic on them- if you use a low temp hot glue gun either should work. 🙂

    Do you have any ideas that are not candy or food to fill them with? All I could come up with is cotton balls for the snowman!

      hi there, you might try beads, socks, pom poms, fake snow (the glittery stuff), shredded paper or cellophane?

    I love this idea. Do you use only half of the plastic ornament? Or do you repeat the process on the other side and then glue both sections together? I wonder how there is room for the craft stick? Thank you

      Hi there, you just use one half of the ornament for each treat pop, you want to lay the ornament with candy down onto the paper and glue all the way around the ornament to secure the candy inside, Hot glue the craft stick to the back side of the ornament (attaching it to the construction paper). 🙂 You can see how I created them in more detail on you tube here—> https://youtu.be/ag_8dfkaIUc

    How did you get the nose for the snowman?

      Hi there,
      I just cut a small nose from some orange felt, you could also use construction paper or craft foam as well.
