 PopCorn Ball Ornaments

Recipe For homemade popcorn ball Ornaments

Ingredients
•I prefer to use the already made store bought popcorn balls
You will need one for each guest
•Mini candy canes
•Colored sugar
•Frosting
•Mini M&Ms

Instructions
You'll need a small popcorn ball for each person .
 Use a skewer to poke a small hole in the top, then snap the end off of a mini candy cane to create a point, and gently press the sharp end of the cane into the popcorn ball far enough to make a loop.
For the sugar dots and lines, pour colored sugar onto a paper plate . Fill a pastry bag with frosting, or scoop frosting into a quart-size plastic bag and cut off one corner. Working on one dot or line at a time, pipe frosting thickly onto the ball, then press the ball gently into the sugar so that only the frosting touches it.
Use the frosting to glue mini M&Ms to the ball.

And there you have it. A fun project for you and the kids, a delightful ornament to hang anywhere and a favor to give to guest who have come to your holiday party. Hope you find this fun, easy, and a delight to do with the kids.
