Cotton Candy Backdrop for Art Party

I really need to work on my catchy title names. I don't have that gift!! Well, just wanted to give you the 411 on the cotton candy holder from Maddy's Art party as seen here. I was in IKEA and of course you know I went into the clearance section. I found this big metal piece. I think it was a back for a shelving unit. Anyhoo, it was $1.99. I had no idea what I was going to use it for but it was $1.99. So it was asking me to take it home and find some use for it, right?
I quickly realized ~ duh~ it is metal so it must be magnetic.
Found the colorful clip magnets at the 99 cents store (4 for $1) and hot glued a crayon onto each.
Put cotton candy in Ziploc bags and found these crayon sheets at $ Tree~ which I just cut to size. I think it turned out cute and I haven't seen it before so that makes me happy!
