The Pin Junkie: Decorated Candy Bars

Decorated Candy Bars


This project was inspired by ideas pinned to my Crafts Pinterest board.

These are easy and fast ways to decorate candy bars and they make great gifts.


Here's what you'll need for the reindeer:
Hershey bars
brown paper cut to 5 1/4" by 5 3/4"
red pom poms
google eyes
brown pipe cleaners 

I used some of the leftover materials from my other reindeer project so I didn't have to buy anything.

Just wrap the paper around the candy bar and secure with tape or glue.  Glue on the eyes, nose and antlers. 


The next idea is a snowman.

Here's what you'll need for the snowman:
Hershey bars
printable snowman cut to 5 1/4" by 5 3/4"
fabric

Note:  The free snowman printable I used is no longer available, but Debbie at Simple Joys in Life has a similar and just as cute way to make a snowman candy bar wrapper.  Go here for details.
