Candy Globes

Here is a modern variation on the Candy Trees I posted previously.  They are just as creative and simple to make.  For a centerpiece you could try a grouping in different sizes and heights.  These aren't just for Halloween either.  A gum drop or peppermint one would be great for Christmas!

Candy Globes



  • Styrofoam balls
  • Black spray paint
  • Low-temperature glue gun
  • Assorted candy such as Reese's Pieces, candy corn, black gumdrops, jelly rings and Skittles


1. Spray balls with black paint. Let dry.

2. Glue candy to balls in a uniform pattern, working in concentric circles around the entire ball. Let dry completely before displaying on cake stands, vases or glasses.
