Sucker Holders

Today, I am going to show you how I made these adorable little sucker holders. I love these for a couple reasons. 1 – They were SOOOO easy to make. 2 – The supplies were very the Dollar Tree! 3 – I can use these for so many things!

I used these for Karsyn’s first birthday to hold the suckers that I didn’t include in the party bags. I didn’t include these because they were too cute to just stuff in a bag! I LOOVED each of their little faces and all of the different colors.

I got the suckers from Oriental Trading.

Supplies needed:

-Candlesticks {number depends on how many you want to make}
-Candle/Candy jars {not really sure what they’re called. They’re in the candle aisle. I chose square and round ones for this project.}
-Flower foam
-Glue {I used E6000}
-Something to cover the flower foam {I chose tissue paper}

{This tutorial is how I made the square ones, but just follow the applicable steps if you just have round jars.}

1000947_10201720721357676_77776630_nThe foam squares were a little bit too big for the opening of the jar, so I just trimmed them down to size.

Next, I cut the tissue paper big enough to cover the foam square.

Once it was covered, I took another piece of the tissue paper, wadded it up and stuffed it in the bottom of the jar and then shoved the covered foam square in the jar. I did this because the foam square wasn’t tall enough to fill the whole jar and the empty space looked silly. I was going to add some googly eyes in there before I put the square over the top, but I forgot. ):

I am beyond thrilled to be out of there!} And, of course, I forgot to take a picture of it at the party, so here is one of the round jars that I used! Notice that I did add the googly eyes to the round one and it was SO much cuter!! Oh, and I added ribbon to all of them, as well. You can see that in the round jar picture.

Since the party, I have set these up around the house and used them for various things like candy, cotton balls, and other small items. I also changed out the ribbon to match whatever room it was in.
