  • Snack size Ziploc bags
  • Brown paper lunch bags
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Begin by filling your snack bags with Reese’s Pieces.  When they are full, tape the “closure down to the bottom of the bag.  For the top of your ear of corn, you will want to tape the closure at an angle to prevent it from showing.  If it isn’t completely smooth underneath, that is okay, it won’t show other then the very top.

Grab one brown paper lunch bag.  Open it up and cut down the side seams to cut in half.  Cut off the bottom.

You should end up with two equal pieces.  At the top of each of these cut 3 lines about 2-3 inches down.  Now you are going to want to take each of those 3 sections and give them a slightly pointy look.  Just trim the sides of them so they resemble a corn husk, not so much a brown paper bag.

Take your baggie of Reese’s pieces and place them in the center.  Make sure your corn husks are a little taller then your baggie, but not a huge difference.  Bunch up the brown paper bag at the base of your snack bag and secure together with a piece of twine or ribbon when you have it positioned the way you want. You should have quite a bit of brown bag hanging over the bottom, that is okay.  We are going to trim it off once your bags are tied together.

Valentine’s Day Candles, Easy, Thrifty Holiday Decorations

These candles are such a great way to bring a little Valentine’s day festivity into your home without having to break the bank!

With some simple candles, a sheet of scrapbook paper and just a bit of ribbon you have a great decoration!

This tutorial really is so simple that typing it out is the most work the project took!  All you need is candles, a sheet of scrapbook paper, ribbon and some glue.  Now, I used scrapbooking squares so that it is easy to remove because then I can change them out for the season!  Smart, right?

Depending on the size of your candle, will depend on how much paper you need. I left about an inch of space on top and the bottom edge of the candle, that made my paper about 4 inches, but like I said, it really just depends on the sizeof your candle.  I chose black and white with a hint of red because I wanted a little more of a “romantic” feel.  I love that with paper you can totally change the feel of this project!

All you need to do is wrap the paper around and tape it.

Once you have paper attached add some ribbon.  Cut your ribbon the size you want.  If you want to tie a ribbon in a bow be sure to leave enough extra ribbon.  This could be done several different ways, with a ribbon, just tied like I did mine leaving the ends hanging, or just wrap it around and tape it in the back so it is just a smooth, flat ribbon.

That is it!  I told you it was easy!  Grab some scrapbook paper and make some of your own!  What a great way to add a little pizzazz to your decor!
