My daughter, a freshman in college, came home for Thanksgiving break wondering what to do for her new sorority sisters in terms of small Christmas gifts. Not wanting to spend a fortune, she came up with this idea of candy sleighs. I jumped in with my hot glue gun and this is what we came up with. :-)





She stopped me at adding little foil covered Santas to drive the sleighs, claiming it exceeded her budget. Fun project, it took under an hour.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Thanks Onyxnox :-)

I think I managed to get the annual holiday chocolate binge outta my system before December even started.

Awesome holiday idea and execution--your daughter's sorority sisters will surely love them!  I would go "sledding" with mine on wadded-up "mountains" of blankets and clothing before disassembling and consuming it!

I made candy sleighs one year and they were fun and cute! I love seeing other crafters take on them!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thanks for the kind words y'all!

Sometimes these fun things with the kids are better than the stuff that goes to the Etsy shop. :-)
