This is one of my favorite crafts, because not only is it cute, but it also disguises those chocolate bars my brothers are always trying to find.
All you need is some paper, and your chocolate can be safe from those Hershey snatchers too! :)
Let me show you…
What you need:
- ONE SHEET OF EACH PAPER:
- Red paper
- White paper
- Black paper
- Gold or Yellow paper
- This Pattern – Santa Bar Template
- 2 black buttons
Start by printing out the pattern and cutting them out of the correct colors. Get creative…use the pattern as a guide and let your scissors make the squiggles in the beard.
Just like you would wrap a present, cover the Hershey bar in red paper and tape. Card stock is going to be harder to wrap, so use a lighter stock of red paper if available.
Position the white “coat fluff” if you will, in the middle of the wrapped bar and glue in place.
Give me a second….
Okay I’m back. As I’m writing this and uploading the picture of the Hershey bar being wrapped, a Hershey snatcher realizes what is under the Santa disguise (from the picture) and takes off. I just ran about the house trying to save Santa!
It is all good now…he’s saved :)
Anyways, Take the black “belt” and wrap it around Santa’s waist and glue in place, just overlapping the white “coat fluff”.
Add his beard to the other end
Keep his pants on with the shiny yellow belt buckle
And lastly, his 2 buttons.
Look at that cutie! All disguised.
This would be a great gift exchange gift or a simple stocking stuffer!
