Father's Day Candy Guitar Craft

Pin It
This Father's Day candy craft is a unique gift that keeps on giving. A way to a man's heart is through his stomach and Dad will be delighted to get this guitar covered in his favorite candy.

Materials:

  • white paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • large flat Styrofoam or thick cardboard.
  • gold foil or cellophane
  • brown construction paper
  • shiny string
  • ribbon
  • glue gun or other strong glue
  • lots of his favorite candy

Directions:

  1. Draw and cut out a simple guitar design from white paper to make your template. It's easier to draw half a guitar on the fold, cut out and unfold.
  2. Lay the template on a large flat piece of Styrofoam or thick cardboard and trace and cut out.
  3. Cover the whole guitar in gold foil or cellophane and tape or glue in the back.
  4. Cut out and glue on a brown circle where the hole in the guitar should be.
  5. This is the fun part! Use a glue gun with an adult or other glue to attach his favorite candies all over the guitar. It's creative and kind of like decorating a gingerbread house. You could even glue candies at the top of the neck for the knobs to adjust the strings. Don't eat up all the candies before you finish.
  6. If desired, glue on some shiny thread for the guitar strings and a long piece of ribbon for a guitar strap.

Variations:
You can go as simple or big on this as you want. Also, this idea could be used for other shapes. Instead of a guitar, make a piano, car, tennis racket, golf club, or hat. Whatever Dad's into
