DIY: Christmas Candy Sleighs
Must remember this when Christmas comes around. Candy sleighs! What a cute idea for small gifts 🙂 I guess you could also add small bars of soap or handkerchiefs or other non-food items too.
They were fun to make. We made a dozen of them in about an hour and a half (plus wasted time driving around town looking for Christmas ribbon!) I think it was much easier doing them together so we had extra hands. One person to hold while the other one glues… especially for the first step! First you glue a kitkat bar to two candy canes to create the base. We used hot glue and ran a strip of glue down each candy cane.
Next, attach 10 mini hershey bars on top, with just a drop of glue for each. You stack them in a pyramid, first 4, then 3, then 2, then 1, like this:
After all the glue is hard and secure, glue ribbon around your “packages” and a bow on the top. That’s it! so cute and fun and your recipient can keep it as a decoration or take it apart and eat all the candy!
