Homemade Father's Day Gifts - A "Computer" Candy Arrangement

Please share your homemade Fathers Day gifts with the rest of us.

Most Guys love cakes, candy, and other desserts. The candy computer below will make a perfect Father’s Day gift for "Foodie" Dads. Give your Dad a present he will not forget. He will probably brag about this present to his friends and colleagues:). See more homemade Fathers Day gift ideas.

Note: This Father's Day craft project is only for your personal use. It is copyrighted.

To make this Father’s Day Gift you will need: a Styrofoam sheet, candy, aluminum foil, a picture for screen, and tools (scissors, knife, a hot glue gun).

Homemade Father's Day gifts - candy computer gift

Step 1. Cut two styrofoam rectangles. You can make a real-size notebook (in this case, you need a lot of sweets) or you can make a mini notebook that requires less candy but still looks great.

Step 2. Wrap foam blocks in aluminum foil.

Step 3. Using hot glue, secure two styrofoam pieces together at a 90 degree or an 80 degree angle.

Step 4. Print a picture for the computer "screen." It can be just a blue screen with Windows logo or it can be any picture you want. First, make sure the picture you want to use for your candy notebook is on your real computer. Press the button ‘print screen’. Then open any picture editor or a word document and paste this picture. Resize it so it fits your candy notebook. Print the picture. Glue it to the notebook.

Step 5. Using hot glue (a low temperature glue gun), attach sweets around the "screen" and around the "keyboard." Do not forget to cover the sides of the notebook with sweets. You can use any candy you want.

Step 6. For the "keyboard" use different candy pieces.

Your unique personalized gift for Fathers Day is ready. Dad or Grandpa will never forget this sweet gift.

A candy computer gift ideas for Father's Day

You can make a desktop computer instead of a notebook. It involves a little bit more work but it is worth the effort. You will need one Styrofoam piece for a screen, one for a keyboard and one for a stand/pedestal. You can wrap the Styrofoam pieces in gold foil or metalized cello or tissue paper. Glue sweets. You can also make a thumb drive or a mouse with or without sweets (just as decorative elements).

It is not really that difficult to make these candy computers and they make awesome homemade Fathers Day gifts.

I would love to see your Sweet Computers! Please, send your pictures to this email.

Happy Father's Day!
