Have you seen those party decorations that have a ton of lollipops stuck into a Styrofoam ball? So cute right? Well, I wanted to put a little bit of a twist on it. It probably helped that I couldn’t find a giant bag of lollipops for a good price, and refused to pay a lot to make a party decoration. Lol. Starburst were on sale at my local grocery store, and when I saw the “Fav Reds” pack, I KNEW that’d be perfect.
I just need to throw a little disclaimer out there. I had a WHOLE bunch of shots. Every picture was turning out blurry. I’m not the photographer in our family that knows how to use the fancy settings on the fancy camera. My husband is the one in charge of the camera and he leaves it on the right setting for me to do pictures. Well, we got a new lens and I had no idea how to use it or what I was doing wrong. Anyways, we figured out what I was doing wrong once I was all done making this awesome ball. So I have so few pictures that actually turned out. So sorry!
Starburst Party Ball Materials:
Pot (or bowl or whatever)
Spray Paint (if you want to color your pot)
Styrofoam ball (mine was 6 inches. It was signification cheaper than the 8 inch)
2 Packages of Starburst (if you’re going to be picky about how you do the colors, if not then whatever works)
Alright, so I took my ball and divided it into 4 parts. This isn’t totally necessary, but then you can see more or less where to put the candy. I also have tissue paper in the bottom of my pot so prop my ball up. Once the candy was on, I no longer needed to do that.
