Day 17 of 20 Days of Christmas: Snowman Candy Bars

For Day 17, I dressed up some larger Hershey bars to look like snowmen.  These are very simple to make and they are great little gifts.  I made these to give to one of my friends little boys with their gifts.
I started out with a large Hershey bar and used white cardstock to make a pouch around them that the candy bar can slide in and out of.

Now, to make the snowman's hat I took a child's Christmas Sock and placed it around the top of the candy bar.

Next, I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the circles for the eyes and mouth and Doodlecharms for the nose.  I used a white pen to add details in the eyes and a glitter pen to make the nose sparkle.  Once these were finished, I glued them onto the paper.
For the scarf, I took a piece of felt and cut it to form a scarf.  I cut one long piece and then glued a smaller piece to the top for the folded part of the scarf.  Then, I glued it to the paper.
Once they are finished, you can easily slide the candy bar in and out of the package and keep the snowman even after you eat the candy.
