Rock Candy Chandy Tute

Roses are red.
Rock candy is cute.
I should be cleaning,
But I am eating lots of sugar + writing this tute:)

Enjoy this sweet + simple tutorial.
Disclaimer: The candy is for adorable presentation. Don't eat it-it has glue on it:)

Stuff you need:
Rock candy on strings
Assorted ribbon
Floral wire picks
Purple Hot Glue Gun
Display stand or tree

Homegoods purchase that I spray painted silver

cut rock candy strings into desired lengths 

cut wire picks into 2-3 inch pieces bend a hook at end

make sure glue gun is very hot, it should burn/melt the candy
I add glue until the candy cracks and melts a tiny bit, then insert hook
let cool for about 15 minutes

add ribbon and hang

Another option-just use rock candy sticks and hang with ribbon

Another candy chandelier idea courtesy
of the sparkling Shawna Brockmeier

Love the tute and epic poem!

Such a cute little tute. Those rock candy chandys are quite eye catching.

What a great idea for a dessert table! I love how you can just take the ornaments right off and eat them.

Great party idea! And come to think of it, rock candy does kinda glitter, right???
