Ashley saw these on a blog and thought I should do them. They have been kind of a work in progress. We started them the last Saturday in September and I finished them today. They were a little bit of work but not too bad. I used a 2 1/2 inch ball and painted it orange, and painted my dowels white. Then we bought the candy, candy corns, jelly beans, and gum drops. You glue them on to the ball and I stuck them into a canning jar which has a piece of styrofoam inside. (glue the dowel into the ball and also the styrofoam in the jar) Added ribbon and then they were done. I don't remember what website she saw them off of.
