{Holiday 2017} My Pink Bubblegum Candy House

My Holiday Pink Bubblegum Candy House - Hello Lovely Studio

If you saw my post about choosing our holiday cards from Minted, you may recall seeing my wonky, shabby-with-no-chic, holiday pink bubblegum candy house which I made after an epic gingerbread house fail. I usually bake my gingerbread from scratch and make simple sweet houses covered with candy, but I tried a kit this year which just didn’t meet my expectations! So the squirrels got to enjoy that crumbly experiment, and I made this pink house after seeing an image of a much more beautiful version via Milieu.

What I am most proud of is that everything came from the Dollar store…candy canes (break off the top!), pink sticks of gum, gumballs, powdered sugar, Pretzel sticks, Hersheys bars, gumdrops, alphabet cookies, and white cotton candy. I started with a recycled whipping cream carton and winged it from there.

My favorite part? The smells. Just scrumptious.

    Too cute, Michelle! I love the Hershey’s door, so clever. And, loved your kitchen with red pops. Sourcing those white and red bowls a possibility?

      Thanks, Rhonda! The bowls were a gift a few years back, and they are Crate & Barrel. 🙂
