My co-host Ken Hayes has a new baby girl in their household, Jane.  From experience, I know that most visitors to his home want to meet the new baby and hold her.  He also has a five year old and I was afraid he might be feeling left out.  Last night we went for a visit and I brought the materials needed for this easy DIY craft idea so just Zach and I could have some one-on-one time and he could make gifts for his teachers.

First I watched a video on how to do it, then I got the materials and went to town.  It was so easy!!  This is what you'll need:

  • a glue gun and glue sticks
  • ribbon
  • candy canes
  • a full size Kit Kat candy bar
  • a bag of Hershey miniature candy bars
  • a bow

1.  Glue the candy canes to the bottom of the Kit Kat bar

2.  Glue 4 Hershey miniatures to the top of the Kit Kat bar (use a color other than red, since the Kit Kat is already that color)

3.  Glue 3 Hershey miniatures to the top of those four (any color works now)

4.  Glue 2 Hershey miniatures to the top of those three (any color works now)

Place them so that they form a pyramid

5.  Then measure the ribbon from the front to back of the sleigh, between the candy canes and use a dot of glue to hold it in place

6.  Measure the ribbon from side to side and use a dot of glue in about the same location as the first ribbon you glued

7.  Finally, adhere the bow to the top of your sleigh with a little more glue.

If that's confusing, here's the youtube video I watched.  Of course, it's your creation so anything goes!  Have fun!!!
