I had something planned for my kids to give to their friends for Christmas. It didn’t work out (mostly because of time) so I moved on to another idea. I saw this on marthastewart.com a while ago. Sorry I don’t remember where. But don’t worry, I’ll show you how to make them here. You start with regular size chocolate bars, so you know it’s going to be good.

I used white wrapping paper to wrap around the candy bars. I love this wrapping paper because it has cutting guides on the back, making it much easier on me. I cut it to size with a little over lap to be able to secure it with tape on the back.

Now they’re ready for their snowman faces.

I used a pencil eraser on a black stamp pad to make the eyes and mouth. You could use black craft paint, but I was out of it and didn’t want to run to the store.  

I cut the carrot noses out of orange cardstock and attached them with a glue stick.

Then added blue yarn for a scarf.

Oh, cute! Now they’re ready to hand out to friends.

Sometimes a change of plans works out just fine.

I just have to say, cute!! I’ve added a pair of socks stretched over the head and tied a ribbon on it to make it a hat. A little more expense but nice.
