Making candy for the doll's coffee shop!

It's March, and time for the wearing of the green!
I quickly set up Grace's bistro set, and added 2 small green cups from Dollarama, and 2 coffee cups which I also found there! The little donuts are from the Newberry coffee shop.
The little hats are also from Dollarama. The elastic needs to be shortened.

I got ambitious and I made some dolly candy.
This is my first attempt!
Someone had used Valentine beads recently online, so I tried shamrock beads. They come in a large pack.
The sticks are candy sticks from Michaels which I cut in half for the correct length. Then I put them in a row of 8 on a piece of sticky tape, and carefully layered a 2nd piece on top. Fortunately it worked out well the first try!
I even added a piece of the cardboard from the bead bag.

I think they turned out great!

The shamrock suckers are adorable! Very realistic looking, too. Somehow, when March rolls around, all I start thinking about is Easter. I never seem to remember about St. Patrick's day. I might have to change that!

Thank you, Angela! I never hardly ever remember St. Patrick's either, but this month I got very sick, so while not able to do much, I worked slowly on dolly crafts. It's a lot of fun once you get started. All those FB groups are very inspiring!
