{DIY} Easy Sucker Stand

Don't know about you but sometimes I find displaying suckers for a party a challenge.  When helping my friend with her son's graduation party she asked for ideas on how to display suckers.  I simply said in a glass jar or use a covered styrofoam form/block. And when I said that I was thinking  covered in wrapping paper like a wrapped box.  Well my friend had seen an idea she kept in her head using tulle squares and straight pins.  I was extremely pleased with the outcome and see more sucker stands in my future! Ha!

Easy Sucker Stand
styrofoam block
scrapbook paper (1 12x12 piece)
thumb tacks
straight pins

Make it:
I started out covering all sides of the block except the top with scrapbook paper.  The paper was the exact length of the block. I then trimmed the excess and used it to cut rectangles to fit the ends (the smaller pieces). I simply secured the paper to the block with thumb tacks.
Next I cut small rectangles of tulle( I eyeballed it!) and folded it up like you do a piece of tissue paper for a gift sack. Then I put a straight pin down the center of the tulle and into the styrofoam block. Wallah!  I do think I could have done it a bit 'looser', it was pretty full! When I pushed in the suckers basically they were in between rows of tulle. Hope that makes sense!! 

It really was very easy just a little time consuming!
But totally worth it, don't you think?

Happy Thursday lovelies!!

This is so cute. I made something similar for cake pops and it was so popular.

Today, I am starting a social media blog hop with 5 other ladies I met at Snap Conference. Each week features a new social media link up starting with Facebook today. I hope you will come over to link up at Just Us Four!
