Make In-the-Hoop Peppermint Candy Sucker Wrappers!

by Kris on December 7, 2009

These sucker wrappers will be a total hit at your next party! Very quick and easy to stitch, NO STABILIZER needed, and some felt! There are 3 different versions on SWAK. The 4×4 hoop size will allow you to make 1 wrapper, the 5×7 hoop size will make 3 wrappers at once, and the 6×10 hoop size will allow you to crank out 4 sucker wrappers all at the same time! Let me show you how easy this project can be!

Even though there are 3 videos here, no worries! It’s really not a long project at all. We just wanted to keep it to short segments for easier viewing! Enjoy watching how easy an “in-the-hoop” project really can be!

Interested in what the “Twas the Night Before Christmas” Dinner is all about? Check back on the blog this week! We’ll post another video!

Whenever I’m feeling uninspired I just go to “I Made This!”. Boy after cruising through a few pages, I’m reved up with lots of creative ideas for my grands!!!

dum dum…and you could use the as little girl hair accents, or in vases as a centerpiece. these could also go in the place setting, slipped right in the napkin rings…..

that is all I got for now…

Fast and easy! Always great video tutorials. Thanks!

This surely makes one want an embroidery machine. Can embroidery be done on a regular machine? How?

5 Mindy 12.08.09 at 6:40 am

Very cute! This would make a cute hair clip! Perfect for the season!!! Oh and you used a dum dum!!! My 3yo FAVORITE!

Dum dums! How adorable are they to make for a class or even as “gift tags” for children gifts. I love it. And you know what? I need to go find me some white felt and make a few… a few dozen!

Dum dum suckers….I live in Canada….who was the person that invented dum dum suckers……why did they pick such a name?

8 Margaret 12.08.09 at 7:17 am

This would be adorable for a barrette cover for a little girl!

9 Margaret 12.08.09 at 7:17 am

They are dum dum suckers. ;)

10 Lauren 12.08.09 at 7:17 am

They’re Dum Dum suckers…I think they would make precious hair pretties!

11 Reita 12.08.09 at 7:55 am

They are dum dum suckers. I think these would look darling on a Christmas wreath.

12 Kara 12.08.09 at 8:57 am

Yes, Dum Dums….

If I had an embroidery machine (I told Santa I only wanted 1 thing this year!) I would add these to the centers on my hairbows or embellish a t-shirt with it for a festive upgrade!

13 Marilyn2222 12.08.09 at 9:35 am

Cute idea. Love dum dums too.

14 Jennifer C 12.08.09 at 10:00 am

It was a Dum Dum.

15 Melissa 12.08.09 at 10:18 am

Those would make such cute attachments to a hair pretty for a little girl – too bad my “little” girl is past that stage. :-(

16 AnnieG 12.08.09 at 10:21 am

I’m so glad you posted this video because I may have passed this over when clicking around the website! I wanted to make my tree red & white this year and I think this would be so cute as ornaments for the tree! I would stuff a little batting in the opening and then add a cute red and white polka dot ribbon for hanging it. A simple straight stitch to close it up! How ‘SWEET” is that?!

17 Rachel 12.08.09 at 11:51 am

I have to agree with others, it would make a great hair barrett. It could also be used as a really nice gift tag.

18 Mama Lusco 12.08.09 at 11:58 am

Dum Dum! These would be cute ornaments, also.

19 Kerrie B. 12.08.09 at 12:08 pm

Very cute idea, you used DumDum suckers and another use could be… sticking a few dollars in and putting in the stocking for Christmas morning.
Very cute.

20 Marilyn Snow 12.08.09 at 12:26 pm

Dum-Dum Suckers were used. I think it would be cute to make a garland to hand across a door frame or over a window. The other ideas are great, too.

21 Dina 12.08.09 at 1:49 pm

So cute! You used the dum dum suckers!

22 Carolyn Hutchinson 12.08.09 at 3:37 pm

Dum dum suckers. I love how you tied the bows on each side.

23 Tanya Taylor 12.08.09 at 3:57 pm

Dum dum suckers were used. Very cute idea.

24 Deborah K 12.08.09 at 4:26 pm

25 Becky 12.08.09 at 6:21 pm

Dum dum suckers.

26 Sheila C 12.08.09 at 6:29 pm

Dum Dum pops!! This is so darn cute!!! What a fun way to dress up a lolly!


27 Tiff@ThreePeas 12.08.09 at 6:47 pm

what a cute project! My kids saw the Dum Dum pops and begged me to get our stash out. LOL

28 Ginger 12.08.09 at 7:19 pm

Dum dums. I think these would make cute tree ornaments, just add some ribbon as a hanger, or fridge magnets.

29 Connie T 12.09.09 at 1:14 am

Dum Dum of my kids’ favorites!!

30 Carrie S. 12.09.09 at 1:53 am

Cute for a Birthday Party centerpiece!

31 Pascale 12.09.09 at 7:56 am

This was a Dum Dum sucker. My boys love all the different flavors; well almost all of them :)

32 Christina Zacny 12.09.09 at 8:13 am

DUM DUM SUCKERS!!!!! Hahaha … I have a cat that actually FETCHES Dum Dum pops, just like a dog! She even has a favorite, Bubble Gum….she will actually unwrap and eat those.

I think these would be totally cute in an arrangement, just like the headbands. Any teacher would love to have an arrangement of these suckers on their desk!

33 happy 12.09.09 at 1:47 pm

It is a pepermint candy suckers. I can make this for christmas tree ornaments, magnets, or hair pin.

34 Tiffani 12.09.09 at 2:19 pm

Dumdum sucker. I love the idea of using it for a hair clip

35 Karen 12.09.09 at 5:25 pm

Dum Dum suckers.

36 amanda 12.09.09 at 8:10 pm

I think it’s just a dum dum? =)

37 Connie 12.10.09 at 5:56 am

The sucker used was of course, the ever yummie and well-loved, “DUM-DUM”.

I also was thinking as I watched you finishing up inserting the sucker in; wouldn’t it be grand to have added a little piece of ribbon (to make a hanger) at the same time you added the felt backing. After the candy is gone, you have a special little ornament for the tree – 2 gifts in 1!

38 Vicki Arnold 12.10.09 at 2:41 pm

Dum Dum mystery sucker. ;) Those are ADORABLE! Depending on the size, you could put them on candy canes, too.

39 crystal 12.11.09 at 12:34 am

Cute idea, this is way better then when we take dum dum suckers and a tissue and make Halloween ghosts!!

40 Andrea McMann 12.12.09 at 6:46 am

She used Dum Dums, which are good for endless crafting projects!

41 Sarah in MO 12.13.09 at 3:07 pm

She used Dum Dum suckers, but you could use other kinds as well, or just tuck in peppermints. :)

42 Lynn Gray 12.14.09 at 10:11 am

A dum dum sucker was used.. I think you could use it in a dish or vase of some sort and fill it with red hots, or peppermint candys, and then put the suckers in there. would be a cute table setting..

43 Carolyn VanOstran 12.15.09 at 5:18 am

Dum Dum sucker…lol. It would also make a cute tooth holder.

44 Kelly O. 12.15.09 at 6:19 am

45 Natalie 12.15.09 at 12:57 pm
