DIY Barbie Candy Centerpiece -Witch for Halloween

Ma was doing a little purging and asked if I'd like a Wilton Barbie Cake Topper... Yes please! While I do have a couple fun cake ideas, the first thing I wanted to try was a Barbie Candy Centerpiece, and since it's Halloween, I made her a witch! This is a cute idea if you're having a girl's Halloween party or birthday around Halloween. I'd say this is more of a ~sweet~ witch, rather than a wicked one... I strive to keep the 'Happy' in Halloween, but you decorate yours as you wish:@)

If you Google or look on Pinterest, there are several ways to do this, I'll show how I made mine.  
I started with the Wilton doll cake topper: 

  Picked up a plastic cup at Walmart, twisted scissors back and forth in the bottom to make a small hole.
Then pushed the point on the bottom of the doll through the hole. 

I used a little orange streamer for her top. 

Some folks use double sided tape to attach the candy, some use glue dots, I just used hot glue.
Start with the bottom row and overlap the candy a little as you work upwards for each row.

I glued a few toy rings here and there for looks and an extra treat.
Add a black cape if desired, I simply used a holiday hair band I had on-hand (see top pic).
This project comes together pretty quickly once you decide what candy to use
and how you want to decorate the doll.
 I could even see this as a cake topper.

  Make something just for fun and have a happy day😊
