DIY Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers

Hey y’all, I’m Danielle from over at Busy Mom’s Helper, and I’m thrilled to be sharing here today (thanks Katie!) Not only that, but I’m so dang excited that it’s the holidays. I’m a bit obsessed with them, especially Christmas! I plan all summer long for my crafts and gifts that I’ll do as soon as Halloween is over. Now it is, and today I’ve got a bunch of cute Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers I can share with you to help with your gift-giving this Christmas!

Too dang cute, right?! I also love that they’re so quick to make, and the supplies should be easily found in most households. Unless I’m the only one who keeps piles of scrapbook papers overflowing my craft room….hopefully not! Anywho…I will admit that I ended up eating one (but just ONE!) candy bar while making these Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers. Not too bad, if I do say so myself!

I’ve even included a free printable shape sheet, so you can print it out for doing your wrappers! You’re welcome 🙂 For the penguin eyes and snowman smile-dots, just use a hole punch on black paper.

Directions

  1. Cut the main paper to wrap around the candy bar, and attach with tape. Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers / by Busy Mom's Helper #ChristmasinJuly #Holidays #CandyWrappers #Gift You can choose plain colored paper, or get creative with patterns and textures! Like this plain black for my penguin, or the snowflake for the snowman… Holiday Candy Bar Wrappers / by Busy Mom's Helper #ChristmasinJuly #Holidays #CandyWrappers #Gift
  2. Print off the Printable Shape Sheet and cut out the stencils to trace. Once you have your shapes cut out of the colored paper, attach to the candy bar wrap.

Whichever you prefer is great!
  3. Get your rectangle piece of felt and wrap it around at the top of the candy bar, attach in the back.
