The Snowman Candy Bar Wrapper is a favorite Christmas craft! Easy to make, fun to give throughout the holiday season. These adorable snowman can be personalized and make edible stuffing stockers, neighbor gifts, co-worker gifts and of course a fun affordable Secret Santa gift. These edible gifts which can be made from your fabric or craft stash and hint hint – look really cute in a little gift basket with different sizes of the snowmen.
This is a combination DIY Christmas craft project where I combined the Snowman Popcorn wrapper and Snowman candy bar wrapper and then modified the design by using college fleece and college logos along with winter and Christmas color fabric from the craft stash. If you reuniting with your college friends this holiday season – these little guys will be a hit I promise…
College Snowman Candy Bar Wrappers
I decided to make a village of college Snowmen Candy Bar Wrappers and Snowman Popcorn Wrappers. After checking prices of chocolate and popcorn, I found the best prices on amazon to purchase in bulk. I easily found the popcorn snack size candy bars on sale or with a coupon at our local stores, but the full size chocolate bars were a little pricey at the brick and mortar stores unless on sale.
Snowman Wrapper Printable
To find the template for the Hershey bar there are free printables available by googling Hershey snowman. I modified and sized the template to the regular size and snack size Hershey bars.
Popcorn Wrapper snowman: The snowman popcorn printable template I found on Etsy. Search candy bar wrapper or snowman candy bar wrapper.
For the popcorn wrapper snowmen I used the popcorn template as is and used college fleece to make the hat and scarf. Depending upon the fleece pattern of the team, I had to fussy cut the appropriate sections of the fleece fabric. This was the most time consuming part of the assembly.

How To Make Snowman Candy Bar Wrapper Hat
Choose your tool of preference to construct the hat (no sew glue or a sewing machine.). The hats can be made with the no sew glue gun technique or with a sewing machine using a quick and easy straight stitch.
A search of Youtube will reveal a few easy tutorials on assembling the hats for the Snowmen Hershey Bars and I promise even the least crafty will prevail. I used both methods of making the hats: glue gun and a sewing machine using the straight stitch to sew the fabric for the hats.
