Candy Bar Snowmen

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

It just wouldn't be Christmas if I wasn't crafting up to the last minute.  I've seen the little candy bar snowmen all over Pinterest and decided that they would be a cute little gift for my co-workers.

I found the printable pattern on line here - Robin's Creative Cottage.  I ran to Walmart and grabbed 2 packs of Hershey Chocolate Bars, 1/2 yard of red fleece, 1/2 yard of blue fleece, and a package of 16 bells from the dollar store.

The directions actually call for sewing the little hats for the snowman.  I didn't have time to sew all the hats this evening, so I cut the fabric to 6 inches wide and approximately 4 1/2 inches wide.  I put some hot glue near the edges and then folded them over to give it a finished look.  I then glue the two sides together leaving the top and bottom both open.  I rolled up the hat, grabbed some twine to gather the upper portion of the hat and then sliced down the hat to make it look like fringe.

If you are a visual person like I am, here is a video I found on how to put the snowmen together.

I think next year, I may start a bit earlier than the night before the last day of school to make my crafts :)
