Melt the Candy in Cookie Cutter

With the heat gun set on high, heat the candies while keeping the tip of the gun about 2 inches above the surface of the candy. Move the gun over the candy for 1–2 minutes until the candy begins to barely melt.

Remove and Poke Hole for String

Let the candy solidify in the cookie cutter for 10–20 minutes until fully cooled. Then, remove the newly formed candy ornament from the cookie cutter.

Heat the top of the ornament and use a skewer or ice pick to poke a hole through the ornament.
