Hey guys! It’s Holly and Nat from My Sister’s Suitcase, and we’re excited to join in the festivities today and share our Halloween Gumball Letters! I mean, who wouldn’t want a Halloween decoration made from candy, right??
These cardboard letters have been used for a ton of DIY decor ideas, but so far I haven’t seen any embellished with candy! It’s amazing how many different colors of gumballs and you can find, (check your local party supply or candy store) so it would be fun to customize these for any party or holiday. For my Halloween gumball letters, here’s what I used:
12″ Cardboard Letters
Black craft paint
4 lbs of large gumballs (1 orange, 1 white, 2 black)
I painted the letters with black craft paint, let them dry completely, and then started attaching the gumballs one at a time with my hi-temp hot glue gun.
Here’s what the letters looked like as I was gluing… I didn’t really follow a pattern, but tried to use more blacks than the other two colors. **Make sure to add a row of gumballs at the bottom of each letter that sticks over the edge of the letter.** This will provide a solid base, and balance the weight of the gumballs so the letters won’t tip over when you stand them up! They’re actually really sturdy. I just love how they turned out:
