Cotton Candy Valentine


Cotton candy is my most favorite sugary snack in the world. I just love that fluffy, sweet stuff.

Last week, when I was trying to decide which treats to include on my Valentine's Day dessert table, I came up with a fun way to serve and display cotton candy - Love Ewe cups. They're clear plastic dishes, with white cotton candy inside. I printed out little sheep illustrations on cardstock and cut out the wooly bodies so the cotton candy could peek through the holes. Then I just placed the paper circles on top, and used a fork to fluff and fill the wooly areas with cotton candy.

Really simple. Really cute.



They'd be fun at a school party. I used little plastic dishes I found at Hobby Lobby, but you could also use clear plastic cups. I think those Solo drinking cups are about the same width, plus they might hold more cotton candy. 

Here's a couple of Love Ewe sheep circles in blue, pink and red if you'd like to try making some. Just print them out on 8.5"x11" cardstock and cut them out. I used an exacto knife, but you don't have to be very precise. A rough circle will do too.

Super cute - definitely pinning this and would love for you to link it to my Craftastic party: http://www.sewcando.com/2013/02/craftastic-monday-link-party-is-on.html

Also, where did you find the white cotton candy? I always see the pastels but never the white.

Thanks Cheryl. I got the white cotton candy at Walmart. I've also seen it at Walgreens occasionally. Now that I think about it, you could probably use popcorn too. ;)

I was totally inspired by your cute cup. I work with cookies and thought it would be a fun cookie idea.
