Who doesn't love a good chocolate candy bar? Making a gift of a candy bar is a perfect low-cost idea for Christmas and other occasions. Using a candy bar in inventive ways will also put a smile on the face of the lucky recipient when she gets the yummy treat.
Snowman Candy Bar
You can create an adorable snowman candy bar with a few simple crafting supplies. First, wrap your candy bar in white paper to make the snowman body. Then draw on a cute little carrot nose, black dotted eyes and mouth and corn cob pipe. Finish up your little creation with a tiny felt scarf tied around the snowman's neck and top his head with a felt hat or cap cut out. This cute little wrapper will almost make it a shame to open it for eating.
Miniature Candy Bar Wreath
If you want to make a big candy bar gift for a Christmas present, you can buy two bags of miniature candy bars to make a candy bar wreath. Make sure you shop the Christmas isle in your local discount store to find candy bars wrapped in Christmas colors. Cut a round circle cardboard base from sturdy shipping box. Then glue the miniature candy bars all over the base to create your wreath. Top with a big red bow.
You can make a sweet Christmas Santa candy bar holder with craft paper, scissors and a little glue. Create a Santa shape for the back base of your candy bar holder. Then create a small black pocket on the front of the Santa to look like a Santa sack. Stuff a candy bar in the small front pocket.
Felt Candy Bar Cozy
You can make a felt envelope for just about anything. This Christmas you can make a felt candy bar cozy to dress up a sweet treat for a cute present. Cut a simple felt envelope shape and sew the ends together to hold the candy bar. You can add adorable Christmas theme buttons from your local sewing store to close the felt envelope. When the candy bar is gone, the lucky recipient will still have a little felt envelope to keep.
