Snowman Candy Bar
As a former teacher, I always searched for simple and inexpensive student Christmas gift ideas. So I thought I would share one of my favorites with you, the Snowman Candy Bar.

Although this was a WIN as a student gift, the Snowman Candy Bar can be used as a gift in many other instances…I’ve even had a reader tell me she used this as a BUNCO gift.
This DIY gift is so easy to make, especially when you use my free printable candy bar wrappers template. And with a cost of less than $1.50, you just can’t beat this as a gift.
Here is what you need:
1 Hershey bar per student
1 pair of gloves per student (you can also use socks)

How to make your Snowman Candy Bar Christmas Craft
First print the candy bar wrappers template. I used regular printer paper, but cardstock would work too. Once I finished printing, I quickly cut each template on the dotted line. After I cut all of the templates, I then secured them to the candy bars with clear tape. For a neater look, I also taped the top and the bottom of the candy wrapper. I also fold over the edges about 1″ on each side, this makes less overlap in the back. Next, I folded the cuff portion of one glove and slipped that over the top of the candy bar. I then secured the second glove to the back by tying the bow in the ribbon below the fingers. I used approximately 10 inches of ribbon for each snowman candy bar.
And that’s it–EASY PEASY!
I think these are pretty stinking cute!!!
