Homemade Gifts for Dad - Candy Guitar gift
Looking for great homemade gifts for dad? Give him a really special gift to show him how much you care. Below you will find unique Fatherís Day Gift Ideas.
Materials used to make this homemade gift for dad: candy, Styrofoam, decorative elements (a bow, etc.), yellow/gold tissue paper or metalized cello, and tools (scissors, knife, a hot glue gun).
Step 1. Make a paper pattern of a guitar. If you want to make a real-size guitar and have a real one at home, just trace it on paper. In this case, you will need a lot of candy. You can make a mini guitar (about 20 inches long) that requires less candy but still looks amazing.
Step 2. Cut a guitar out of Styrofoam sheet, using the paper pattern. You can cut the body and the neck of the instrument separately, and then secure them together with hot glue.
Step 3. Wrap the Styrofoam base with yellow/gold tissue paper or gold metalized cello, securing it with craft glue or pieces of Scotch tape. By doing this, you disguise the Styrofoam even if you have gaps between candies.
Step 4. Glue a brown circle in the center of the foam base where a sound hole in a real instrument is.
Step 5. Glue sweets to the guitarís neck using hot glue (a low-temperature glue gun). Use candy pieces or candy bars with dark brown wrappers. Two examples are, HERSHEY'S Miniatures chocolate bars or fun size MilkyWay pieces.
Step 6. Glue sweets to the guitarís body. Use sweets with gold or yellow wrappers. Use sweets with different wrappers for an instrumentís bridge (so they wonít merge with the candy on the instrumentís body).
Step 7. For string use some thick decorative thread.
Step 8. Glue sweets to the guitar body sides.
