Candy Cane Sleighs with Candy Bars – Perfect DIY Christmas Gift

This is super easy and crazy cute. Not only are they are great gift to have on hand, they also make a really cute present toppers! That’s right, just wrap your gift up and put the candy cane sleigh on top. Best. Gift. Ever.
Side note – if you are looking for a really cute holiday or Christmas recipe that is super easy and great to give as a gift too I have a few to check out!
- Melted Snowman Chocolate Bar (so yum!)
- Peppermint Candy Bowl – these are super popular and make a really great gift too!!
- DIY Peppermint Candy Spoons – these are super with a little package of hot chocolate!
- Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups – these cookie cups are terrific for cookie exchange!
Key ingredient needed here – GLUE DOTS! These things are game changers! For real…serious game changers. You don’t want to use tape, because it just won’t hold well. And of course, you cannot use a glue gun… my most favorite crafting tool ever, because, obviously it will melt the chocolate and we do not want to do that. So glue dots are a must have!
The other things you need to find is some super cute wrapping paper! Feel free to get creative with the candy canes. They make so many great flavors now, like Jelly Belly Candy Canes, Bacon Flavored Candy Canes, Pickled Flavored Candy Canes (ummm…Yuck!) – they basically have everything these days!
People to NOT forget to give holiday gifts to!
It is hard to remember everyone that you need to give holiday gifts! Here is a quick list of people you don’t want to forget!
- Dentist (although they may not love the candy 🙂
- School office staff
- Bus Driver
- Dog Groomer
