I wanted lots of kabobs so I bought my own candy and materials and spent $20 max! So far, I’ve made 20 kabobs and still going. (Retail price for 20 would be
$200 oops, I mean $160.)
For all You DIYers Out There
Materials: wooden skewers (available in the grocery store), roll of cellophane, ribbon, Easter grass, twisties, ribbon.
Candy: I used Reese’s cups, Peeps, chocolate eggs, fondant eggs, and some gummy shapes. The candy is tricky. I found the candy wrapped in foil with soft centers (such as a mini Reese’s cup or caramel-filled eggs) work really well. Next time, I would like to find a little bigger chocolate egg wrapped in foil.
The photo tells it all – slide candy on skewers, wrap in cellophane, secure Easter grass with a twistie and finish with pretty ribbon!
The designs are endless depending on the candy, the type of Easter grass and the ribbon. Have fun!
Birds Love It!
I photographed the kabobs outside on this gorgeous spring morning. The azaleas are out, the birds are chirping, everything is coming alive again. My camera batteries died so I had to go back inside. While inside, I put on some coffee. All the while worrying about our active bird and squirrel population! I thought I better get back before the feast began. Hurrying, I went out and there was a lovely bluebird hovering perched on a branch ready to grab the Easter grass for a nest he might be contemplating. Happy Easter to you Mr. Bird. I promise to leave you some colorful Easter grass in the yard when I finish this blog.
How about kabobs for Christmas and Valentine’s Day?
