Minecraft Birthday Party ... Creeper & Pig Candy Tubes (Can be Gumballs)

Next on my list for the party was a pretty easy one.  I saw on Pinterest these really cool Gumball Tubes, of course it was a picture only so no one to credit or to find out what they did.  So I went on search to make my own.  I first went to Amazon to see how much they were.  The Tubes were almost $2 a piece and then the gumballs came in bags so I would have to buy 2 bags (one green and one pink, if I wanted to do the TNT then red too).  Well I added it up and that was like $35 - $40.  So I went to Michael's and Hobby Lobby hoping to find the stuff I wanted no luck.  So Plan B came into plan, Hobby Lobby had these Jewelry plastic tubes a 4pk for $2.49.  No luck on the gumballs so I hit up Winco Bulk Section.  I found Green Gumdrops and then they had the Easter Candy left so I found the bright Pink Malt Balls (shaped like an oval but I'm not being choosy). 


What you Need:
Candy Tubes (Or Jewelry Tubes)
Pink Round Candy (or 1" Gumballs)
Green Round Candy (or 1" Gumballs)
White Card Stock
Circle Cutter
Hot Glue Gun

I took the Clear tube and added 4 pieces of candy (one color per tube), then I put the cap back on.  For the Faces (I used just the Pig and the Creeper) I found these Cupcake Tags, I copied into a word doc and Edited it by cropping out just the characters I wanted and enlarging to the size I wanted.  I then took my circle cutter (cheap and best investment) and cut the circles out.  I took my , then with my glue gun I added a dab of glue to the back of the circle.  You can either add to the top of the cap or to the front of the tube, I did both.  I must say I like it on to so it shows off the whole tube.  Simple and Easy but they look so freaking cool!



Any Themed Parties planned?
