Thanks for stopping by! On this page, you can download my free printable snowman candy wrappers. This template, which is available for download below, fits perfectly around a regular-sized Hershey candy bar. If you are looking for a super simple DIY gift that you can give to co-workers or your kids’ classmates and teachers, this might be it! You can also use the snowman-clad candy bars as stocking stuffers and Secret Santa presents.
The first thing you will need to do is download the printable PDF below. Please note that you may use the PDF for personal use ONLY (no commercial use).
DOWNLOAD THE TEMPLATE:
This project is super simple to make! However, I have included a few quick instructions to follow.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SNOWMAN CANDY BAR WRAPPERS
- free printable snowman candy bar wrappers (see link above)
- a PDF program, such as Adobe Reader, to open the document
- color printer
- paper (for my snowman, I used presentation paper)
- scissors or paper trimmer
- double-sided tape or tape runner
- regular size Hershey candy bars (1.55 oz/43 g)
- fabric scraps for scarf (to prevent unraveling, I recommend fleece)
- Button, ribbon, or other embellishments for hat
- hot glue gun to attach embellishments to hat
STEP ONE: Download and Print the Template
Download the template and open in Adobe Reader or other PDF program. I don’t have a picture of the snowman’s back, but there is a holiday greeting which you can delete and personalize with your own Christmas message.
For printing, you could use regular copy paper or card stock. However, for best results, I recommend using presentation paper. Regular copy paper is too thin, while card stock is usually too thick. For my snowman, I used Epson Premium Matte Presentation Paper. It’s heavy duty but not too thick to fold around the candy bar. The Epson paper is also ultra smooth and has a special coating that ensures a smudge-free finish. As a side note, I have an HP printer. Even though I have a different brand printer, the paper works well with my ink.
STEP TWO: Cut and Adhere
After the template is done printing, allow the ink to dry for a minute or two, and then cut it out. You can use scissors, but I recommend a paper trimmer for quick, straight cuts. Wrap the template around the candy bar, visually lining up the “face” of the template with the front of the candy bar. To adhere, I used my Scotch ATG tape gun, but you could use double-sided tape or any permanent adhesive tape runner.
STEP THREE: Embellishments
At this point, your snowman is ready for gift-giving. However, you can also easily embellish it with any craft supplies that you have on hand. For my snowman candy bar wrapper, I cut a thin fabric strip and used it for his scarf. I also added a plastic snowflake to his hat, which I adhered using my hot glue gun.
