Christmas Candy Gift

You know my LOVE for these cute bottles (Starbucks Frappuccino Bottles)…so you must have know I would have to come up with another Christmas gift using them.  I wanted to make something that would be fun to give to the kids friends that were cute and pretty inexpensive.

I came up with a Santa’s Sweets and a Reindeer Nuggets version based loosely off of these Easter Bunny Gift Jars and the Monster Munchies that I shared earlier this year.  I kind of enjoy the challenge of creating something new for each holiday.

I added a mixture of red Sixlets and red Gumballs in the Santa’s Sweets jar to represent Santa’s red nose.  (I figure after riding in the sleigh on a wintry Christmas night his nose has got to be red).  Then I included a little gift tag that reads:

“He “NOSE” if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!”

You can also substitute the red noses to go in Rudolf’s jar to go along with Rudolph’s red nose.  Whatever one you prefer will work with this I think, don’t you?

For the Reindeer Nuggets, I took some gold foil Rolo’s and added these festive Rolo Christmas stickers I made, based on my Valentine Kiss Stickers and Father’s Day Kiss Stickers that were also shared earlier this year.

Rudolph

To make them, you simply print the free download on white paper or white cardstock.  Then take a 3/4 inch punch (found in scrapbook section of craft stores) and punch out the individual circles.  Then simply glue them onto the bottom of the Rolos (or the candy kisses) with a glue stick.  My kids always LOVE to help me with this job and I am happy to let them help!

Now that you have finished with the candy part…you can make Santa and Rudolph’s heads!  I have provided you with a free downloadable pattern that you can use to make your own out of colored scrapbook paper.

Christmas-candyJust look at these pictures to see how I put the faces together and what color of scrapbook paper to use for each pattern piece.  You can choose to make Santa a different ethnicity too…just pick a different color of scrapbook paper.  You will also need to cut a strip of paper that measures about an inch or so in width and is long enough to wrap around the bottle and be glued together.  This is what you will glue the heads onto.

Father’s Day Gift

I like jars.  Have you noticed? haha!  I can’t help it.  My brain just keeps going there…so I apologize in advance.  But…if you happen to adore jars as much as I do…then you might want to read on.

Father's-Day-Gift 1

Father’s Day is quickly approaching.  I always like to try to come up with a simple and easy to re-create gift idea for each holiday and these Father’s Day Tie Bottles fit the bill this year.

The bottles are recycled Starbucks Frappucino bottles that have been washed clean and dried.  Then simply fill with your Father’s favorite candy and add the printable tie with a piece of string.

If you want to take it a step further, you can print out these fun Father’s Day Hershey’s Kiss Printable “stickers” to glue onto the bottom of some chocolate kisses or hugs candy.  These are a super fun and easy way to add some uniqueness to your Father’s Day Gift.

These are so easy, you will want to make them for all the father figures in your life.  Or use them so a church group or school group can make them for their own fathers.
