Candy decorations are super fun to make and bring a great sense of satisfaction once they are complete. Making life-size candy decorations are even more satisfying and can create an eye-catching display.

What You’ll Need:


    • 3D Printer Filament or Polypropylene Foam Sheet (for making the central frame)
    • Packing Tape
    • A4 Card (for making the templates)
    • Strong Scissors
    • Coloured Felt (or other similar material)
    • Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
    • Candy of your choice



    • Draw the candy shape on the A4 Card: Using your preferred candy as a still-life, draw the outline on the A4 card this will become the template for your candy shape.
    • Cut Out the Card Shape: Use the strong scissors to carefully cut out the shape from the A4 card.
    • Make the Central Frame: You can either print the frame from a 3d printer, making sure to choose a filament that is strong and pliable, or alternatively use polypropylene foam sheet to make the frame. Use the card shape as a template, if necessary.
    • Secure the Frame Together: Use packing tape to join the pieces of the frame together. This should be done firmly and securely.
    • Cover the Frame: Now cover the frame with the felt. Use a hot glue gun and glue sticks to secure the felt along the edges of the frame.
    • Add the Candy: Use the hot glue gun to attach the candy onto the felt covered frame.
    • All Done: Congratulations! You have successfully made a life-size candy decoration!
