Woo hoo! The holidays are well underway at this point and we have just been crafting away! I don’t know about you guys, but we have some little friends in our life that we like to give a little something special to each year. Friends from church, school, and around our neighborhood. Today, I am sharing one of the quickest and easiest candy filled ornaments that is perfect for those occassions! Who doesn’t love an cute ornament and candy?
Wal-Mart has an amazing selection of plastic ornaments this year and they are dirt cheap. They have two different size balls, discs, but I really adored these light bulbs. They are fillable and fun… which equals a cute a nd inexpensive gift.
I picked up a few and brought them home and washed them out with warm soapy water. Once they dried, we filled them up with our favorite Mint M& M’s. You can use your choice of candy, but make sure it is small enough to fit. There were a few stray M &M’s that didn’t fit in our ornaments, but they found their place in our bellies as we worked. ;)
After you finish filling up the ornament, replace the top and tie it off with a cute bow. We also added a little twine for hanging on the tree. So incredibly easy!
I just love that I could go five minutes down the road and pick up all of the supplies for the girls and I to make these fun treats. The fact that they were inexpensive didn’t hurt either! The best part… fun with my two favorite rascals and sharing the spirit of the season… giving!
