Trend Alert: Candy Art!

I’ve been seeing a lot of art made from candy popping up just like in this sweet design board. I love the bold, fresh and modern feel it adds to the decor. I also think it is a fun project to do with the kids, but beware of the consumption of candy—very tempting!

With candy art, a simple design can create a big statement. You can use any candy to create your design, but using candies uniform in shape, like sixlets or gumdrops, will help make the pattern stand out.

Pick a frame that won’t compete with the design. I love how a simple frame was used for the candy heart above, for Dylan Lauren’s bridal shower, but for the ice cream cone below, a more elaborate frame works great because it blends with the white candy.

I am dying to try this out for my next party and create a memorable piece of art good enough to eat!

    What do you usually use to put the candies together? Just glue? What if you plan to eat them candies? What’s an edible substitute for glue?

    I’m not very sure about candy art. I’d rather use watercolor or acrylic, or crayons for arts, while I’d prefer the candies inside my mouth. LOL.
