How about a bitty bow(s) or, any kind of bow for that matter, & use cotton candy button as an embellishment?

This Dress It Up package has cotton candy and popcorn button (HL)

I would do a cone out of grosgrain either 1/4 or 3/8 depending on how big on the puff. I would probably try a cotton ball, I've seen cotton balls that are colored or you could do it yourself.

You could make little tulle puffs for the cotton candy than make a cone or stick out of ribbon.

I was going to take a cotton ball, color it (maybe with a marker or I have a fabric spray paint that might work here) and spray some starch on it. Haven't had time to try it yet but that is what I was going to try.

Hi I'm new here, but I wanted to suggest using quilt batting. I made my halloween custom last year and I was cotton candy. I just cut the quilt batting into whatever size squares and puffed it up by taking opposite sides and stretching like a cotton ball. I then sprayed it with colored hairspray (kind usually sold during halloween).
