Candy gift making – beer mug

Father's day gift craft with candy - Cool beer mug with candies


Do you want your Father’s Day 2022 gift to be extra sophisticated? Then this fake beer is perfect both for beer lovers among fathers, and those who are not a fan of this drink. And do you know what you need when crafting this Father’s Day gift with candy? Just a nice jar of glass, yellow or yellow wrapped candy and marshmallows. After that, it only depends on the correct arrangement:

Simple craft idea for children - beer mug with marshmallows

Fill the pitcher about three-quarters full with the candies – this is to represent the beer. Then fill it up to the top with mini marshmallows, which can quietly protrude a little over the edge – this is the beer foam. You can now tie a label with a greeting to the handle if you like. If you still need to carry the gift somewhere, you can wrap it with foil. This will keep the marshmallows from falling out of the jar without covering the gift itself.

Filled bottles – give candy instead of beer as a gift.

If you want to craft this cool Father’s Day gift with candy, all you need is a set of a cardboard bottle carrier, matching bottles with lids, and various things to design the box: Acrylic paints, stickers and other decorations. Tip: If you want to get creative with wood , you can also buy a wooden bottle carrier.

Snacks and sweets to fill glass bottles

Start by painting the cardboard box. Once the paint is dry, apply a second coat. If this is still not opaque after that, repeat. In the meantime, so while the paint dries, you can fill the bottles with suitable sweets. Already when buying the glass bottles, make sure that the neck is sufficiently large. After all, the sweets should not only fit inside, but also come out easily. Close with the lids and, if necessary, decorate the carrier as desired. After that, place the filled bottles and the original gift is ready and just waiting to be eaten. And the bottles can be conveniently reused later.
