Pinned It and Did It!

Look what I did Sunday night!  I made some Christmas gifts for some special people in my life....all twenty-six of them!  I don't see them often, but I love them a bunch and I wanted to let them know that I was thinking of them!  When I saw this idea on Pinterest I thought it would be perfect!  The version I "pinned" actually involves microwave popcorn...but I had already seen the same idea using Hershey bars.
So that's what I used to make mine.
26 Hershey bars!!  Yum!

Laurie Furnell offers a REALLY cute freebie to use as the wrapper.

Supplies Needed
Hershey Bars 
(I used the regular size...the ones sold as singles in a lot of stores.)
Computer paper
(To print the wrapper on.)
Felt for a Hat 
(I like green 'cause the heart is red.)
(My choice was red.)
A Sparkly Something for the Scarf
(Some tinsel garland worked perfect.)

Then it's easy after that. Tape on the wrapper, add the hat with a bit of hot glue and then tie it with the twine. Add a sparkly scarf and there you have it.  Snowmen a-plenty!  I'm making several more using the slightly larger KING size Hershey bars.  Hope you get a chance to make some. So easy and so sweet!
