The fun part is adding the candy. I bought tooth picks to anchor the candies and found it easier to cut the tooth picks in half and stabbing them into the end of each one with the pointed end out. This also takes some time but well worth it. Two kinds of candy you can use are the small spice drops that are sugar coated and in the shape of bells. For some reason I was not able to find these anywhere but Walmart and they only had 3 tubs. Each tub only covered 3 styrofoam balls and with 40 ornaments to make that wasn't cutting it, so I chose multi colored jelly beans to pick up the rest of my project. A regular size bag covered 2 1/2 ornaments. At $1 a bag, you can't beat it!
I surrounded the ribbon first, before proceeding to cover the rest. The finished project looks like this. One is shown with spice drops and one is shown with jelly beans. When I finished, I placed each ornament in a clear cellophane bag and tied with a pretty bow.
