My First Tutorial

Let's Begin...
With this Halloween Candy Tutorial.
Since this is quite a long tutorial...
I am dividing this up into parts.

Also to better show how I make these,
I will be using a green tick fabric.
Material List
Muslin (Halloween) or Ticking material (Christmas)
Flat Styrofoam 1 inch in height (I buy mine at Joann's or Hobby Lobby)
Black and Terra Cotta Paint (Folk Art brand is what I used)
Instant Coffee (Cheaper the better)
Cinnamon (Dollar Store Brand)
Butter Knife (Serrated Edge if you have)
Paint Brush
White Embroidery Floss and Needle

Only two patterns required
Candy (round piece 1 3/16 inch in diameter)
Wrapper ( 4 1/2 inches by 5 inches)

Take candy piece and place on styrofoam.

Take your knife and insert straight down.
Saw around the entire circle making sure your knife is straight down.

This is what your candy piece will look like once cut.
Do not worry about it not being a perfect circle.
Remember this prim candy!

Cut your wrapper pattern.

Stay tuned....
more to come....

Candy Blessings to all!
