diy candy wrappers

customized candy

i made these little candy favors for a shoot recently. they ended up not blending well with the rest of the decor and props so i decided to keep them out and share them here instead. i thought they would be a fun favor, addition to your candy buffet at a party or wedding, or just something pretty to set out in your candy bowl!

i used store bought, individually packaged pieces of taffy. i wrapped each in a small sheet of wax paper that was about 1 1/2" - 2" longer than the taffy on each side. i taped them each vertically with a piece of washi tape to keep them shut, then twisted each end.

adorable right? not sure how many colors of taffy you can find, but you can go all out and customize with the washi tape to fit your needs. i love that this makes your candy look all handmade and fancy:) but it's the easiest thing.. ever.

how was everyones weekend? we spent lots of time on the water while in az. so i'll share a few pictures i took out on the lake soon!
