I LOVE that some of my crafting supplies are so versatile!! I always keep wood beads in my stash and continually find different ways to use them!! Come with me and see how I’m going to use them for the holidays by making easy wood bead faux candies!!

For this particular project I’m using 25 mm wood beads and you can find those here. These are a perfect size to replicate candy!!
First I need to paint my beads and for that I’m using Anita’s acrylic paint in Fuscia and Crimson Red.
Next up I’ll coat the painted beads with Mod Podge or glue and roll them in Diamond Dust or glitter. If you’re using Diamond Dust please be very careful as it can easily cut you.
The final step is to spray the beads with a spray glue to help hold the Diamond Dust in place.
Wrap it up…
Now I want to make these beads look like candy so I’m going to wrap each bead in a small rectangle of cellophane and secure it with hot glue.
This is all there is to it!! Faux candy fast and easy to create and display for the holidays, or any time of year!! These faux peppermints were fun to create too!!
