Candy Covered Christmas Gift

Adorn your giftwrap with candy to make your Christmas gift that much sweeter!

When decked in Christmas colors, a gift just can't go wrong! Try embellishing your present with some sweet additions and festive ribbon.

We used non-edible glue to adhere our candies so they were just for show, not eating, but you can certainly try to find a non-toxic adhesive to attach yours with so the recipient can indulge their sweet tooth as they unwrap!

  • Red wrapping paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Red and green circular candies, such as gummy wreaths or Lifesavers
  • White glue
  • Red and white ribbon

Step 1: Wrap the gift with red wrapping paper; use tape to secure paper.

Step 2: Arrange red and green candies on top of gift and glue to secure (let kids know that the candy is only for decoration and not for eating).

Step 3: Fasten white and red ribbon around the gift as a final touch.
