Hansel & Gretel: THE CANDY COTTAGE


I am very proud to present my Hansel & Gretel Candy Cottage. I’ve tried to add as much detail as possible, from the liquorish and cotton candy trees, to the frosting roof, waffle cone walls, gum drop garden, peppermint walkway, cake pop decoration, macaroon door frame, and the frosted pretzel window. When I was finished, I thought it would be fun to make it into a postcard with the Witch presenting her sweet house in a sinister way. I made the text and added in the Candy Witch
I hope you enjoy!

Hansel & Gretel

My Hansel and Gretel Designs are finally complete! My idea was for the kids to be dressed as normal modern kids, then when they arrive at the witch’s cottage, she dresses them in candy covered outfits. Gretel’s dress is covered in sugary lemon drops with a macaroon trimmed skirt, a sucker hair clip, and skittle covered shoes. Hansel is wearing a peppermint broach, liquorish shoelaces, and a taffy wrapper bow-tie. The Witch is wearing a Dots trimmed skirt, peppermint shoes/necklace, a sprinkle covered apron, with hair made of cotton candy.

I’m starting a visual development project based around the story of Hansel & Gretel.
First up is my Candy Witch. I’ll be making more characters, environments and props :)
