You Need

  • wrapped candy bar (about 2½ x 6 inches)
  • white card stock
  • 2 small wiggle eyes
  • 1 small pompon nose
  • solid-color cuffed baby sock
  • 8-inch length of narrow ribbon
  • colored markers
  • scissors
  • transparent tape
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • hot glue gun and glue stick


  1. Draw a rectangle on the card stock equal to the length of the candy bar and the distance around the bar plus 1 inch. Cut out the rectangle.
  2. Wrap the cut card stock around the candy bar and crease along the edges of the bar. The ends of the card stock should overlap at the back of the bar. Remove the wrapper from the bar.
  3. Lay the wrapper with the outside facing up. Use the pencil to lightly draw a line on the front of the wrapper 1 inch from the top (to reserve space for the hat).
  4. Below the line on the wrapper, put dots where each eye and the nose will be attached.
  5. Use the markers to draw the hair, mouth, clothes, etc., of a holiday character.
  6. Use the hot glue gun to attach the wiggle eyes and pompon nose.
  7. Wrap the character around the candy bar and use transparent tape to close the ends in the back.
  8. Slide the cuff of the baby sock over the top of the candy bar. Tie the narrow ribbon around the sock into a bow to form a hat shape. Trim off the toe of the sock and fringe the end of the sock above the ribbon.
