Step 1:  Fill the candy tubes with candy.

We layered red, white and blue jelly beans from Jelly Belly Candy Company in candy tubes from our Etsy shop, but other candy such as M&Ms, Skittles or gumballs would work too!

Step #2:  Adhere patriotic ribbon around the top of the tube with hot glue. 

We took a piece of our favorite patriotic ribbon and wrapped it around the tube to determine the proper length and then snipped it down to size before gluing. Using a hot glue gun, we added a dab of glue to each end and gently pressed down on one end of the ribbon as we wrapped it around the top of the tube. Be careful that you don’t glue the ribbon to the tube lid. We adhered our ribbon just below the lid so that the tube could still be easily opened and closed.

Step #3:  Adhere metallic star garland strips to the candy tube lid using hot glue.

We cut 1-2 ” pieces of the red, white and blue metallic star garland and slightly bent one end to allow for more surface to glue to the lid of the candy tubes.  We added a dab of hot glue and carefully pushed the metallic star strips into the glue, holding them in place until the glue started to dry (about 20-30 seconds)
