Recycling Candy Wrappers and Gum

Hope your Halloween night was fantastic! I’m guessing by now your little ones have eagerly examined their candy stash, taken inventory, and are slowly eating their way through it. Here are a couple of ideas from the past to help you make use of your Halloween garbage:

Too many candy wrappers? Candy Wrapper Collage is a fun way to transform those wrappers into art.

Not sure what to do with all that used gum? Gum Art provides you with possibilities beyond the garbage can. And while you’re at it, have a look at what they did in San Luis Obispo, California, home of Bubble Gum Alley. This rather bizarre tourist attraction boasts a sticky stretch of wall 15 feet high and 20 feet long, covered with chewed gum. Cool or disgusting? Maybe a little of both.

    • Hi Michelle, I was wondering if you could remove me from your email list. I love your parties and will definitely continue to participate, but I get so many emails, I thought I would try and reduce the numbers. Thanks so much!bella

  4. Oh, how fun!! And you didn’t even mention the gum wrapper chains we made as kids. Thank you so much for sharing at Sharing Saturday!

  5. Hi! Thanks so much for stopping in at Cranberry Morning. I think you should brave the peeling of the pomegranate and make those scones. 🙂 I’ll have to admit that my laptop monitor was spattered with pomegranate juice by the time I was done. (I keep my laptop on the counter and use the recipe I had written.)

    Cute candy wrapper ideas. 🙂 I like the collage.
