Holiday Gift Guide Feature Craft Idea! Christmas Place Cards: Candy Snowman!

Hey all!
I was searching through the internet for some great holiday crafts and I stumbled upon this great Holiday Craft Idea on the amazing site called Holiday Crafts and Creations. My Family and I have an obsession with Frosty the Snowman so when I saw these Christmas Candy filled Snowman Place cards, I thought they were perfect!

Please go to this Amazing site located at for this craft and many other fantastic Holiday Crafts.

Here are the directions from the site copied and pasted bellow:

What You Will Need:

  • Clear ornament balls
  • White candy (white M&M’s, jelly beans, white chocolate chips)
  • Sock (child size)
  • Felt: orange and black
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Paper hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Embellishments: snowflake confetti (optional)

Step 1:
Cut off the heel of the sock. See photo A. Then cut evenly spaced strips all the way around the end of the sock. Make the cuts about 1″ deep. See photo B.

Step 2:

Remove the ornament hanger from the ball. Fold over the top of the sock about 3/4″. Stretch the sock onto the top of the ball. The sock should be on a little less than half of the ball. Make sure the top opening of the ball is centered in the middle of the sock. See photo C.

Step 3:
Now hot glue the sock onto the ball. Hot gluing under the rim of the sock should be enough to hold it in place. There is no need to put glue under the entire surface of the sock. See photo D.

Step 4:
Using a paper hole punch, cut out 4 black felt circles for the mouth. Now cut two black felt circles for the eyes. Make them a little bigger than the mouth circles. For the nose, cut a carrot shaped piece of orange felt. Hot glue the felt pieces onto the ball to form the snowman’s face. Also hot glue any embellishments that you would like onto the snowman’s hat. We used a piece of snowflake confetti.
Step 5:
Fill the ball with white candy and put the ornament hanger back in. Then tie the hat off with a piece of ribbon. Print the name tag template and cut out a tag for each of your guests. After writing their name on the tag, tie it in with the ribbon.

Your Candy Snowman Place Cards are now finished!
After the candy is gone, your guests can fill the ball with cotton balls and hang them on their tree!
