I had to borrow our youngest son, Caleb’s, Cherry Sour Balls for the project. He had a tragic incident involving spilled candy at our daughter Cora’s basketball game. Oh, the quiet, disappointed tears that fell when Caleb accidentally spilled his candy when he was trying to help me by picking up my camera lens. He loves to help and when the candy hit the sticky, disgusting gym bleachers, I couldn’t help by cringe. No way, son, no way.
After making sure I effectively blurred out everyone else in this pic, Cora is #15. So fun to watch! 🙂
I mean, this mom could NOT let her son eat candy off the bleacher floor. So I did what any mom would do, I promised him a bag of candy of his choice at Walmart. He chose cherry sour balls. Oh, yum.
Well, I came up with an idea for those cherry sour balls. (With his permission, of course.) I thought making Rudolph’s Spares (easy DIY teacher gift) would be helpful for all of you this coming season. We all like to give teacher’s gifts and sometimes trying to come up with a creative one is not easy.
Rudolph’s Spares Item List
Cherry Sour Balls
Regular Elmer’s Glue
By the way, if you ever wondered if buying a hot glue gun would be worth it, just get one. I don’t use mine often, as I am not the craftiest gal around, but when I do get in the mood to make something, it is so handy. And for only $4.00+, it is worth having around!
Simply cut out eyes and antlers from the construction paper. (For the antlers, I just free hand cut an antler shape. That’s the beauty of it, it can look like anything!) Hot glue them on a canning jar. Glue a cherry sour ball on the jar for Rudolph’s Nose.
You can also hot glue fabric (any decoration) on top of the canning lid, if desired. It isn’t necessary but it does add a little more decoration. I put together a video of this, you can see it on my Facebook page. (Be sure to Like my page if you haven’t already! Love to have you follow along!) 🙂
