Snowman Candy Bars

UPDATE: Here is the link

It is late, both in the hour and in the month but I wanted to get this posted. I needed to make a gift for my husband's basketball team girls. I have always seen those big huge Symphony Candy Bars and thought that there had to be something cute that I could make with them. Then I saw this snowman idea on a blog and knew that would be perfect. I apologize profusely because I promised myself I would remember where I saw it and link there because they had a download for a wrapper already made and now I can't for the life of me find where I saw the idea. Anyone know where I saw this idea? Please let me know. This is not my idea. I just thought I would share a tutorial with the measurements for this size candy bar for anyone else that might want to make one this size.


You will need:
1 piece of white paper (I used computer paper) 7 6/8 x 11
1 piece fabric 9 1/2 x 5 for the hat
1 piece fabric 1" x 15"

Wrap your paper around your candy bar and tape it on the back side.
Place your hat fabric, right side facing down, on your table. Place the candy bar in the center and down like this.
Wrap the fabric around the candy bar and glue in place. I used a dab of hot glue.
Overlap the other side and glue.
Tie top off with a piece of string or ribbon.
Tie scarf around candy bar. Trim ends.
Cut carrot nose out of fun foam or felt and attach.
Draw in eyes and mouth with pen, use chalk for cheeks and stamp buttons with a pencil eraser. TADA!!
Pin It!
