Still need a Father’s Day gift? Or, want something sweet to add onto what you already have? This little gift is simple enough that you can whip it up in no time, but it sure is sweet!
I love the little paint cans (you can buy them new at Lowe’s). They are absolutely perfect for a little “gift basket”, especially for Father’s Day! With a little washi tape, you can spruce up the can in seconds! I just wrapped a piece of silver & white striped washi around the can for a little extra pizzazz! Still “manly”, but makes it just a bit more fun!Then, we filled it with Almond Joy and Riesen candies! Why those? Well, they happen to be a couple of favorites of my dad. Plus, you can make such a cute little candy card with them! I attempted to go the printable route, but was having technical difficulties and then discovered that our printer had no more colored ink. Gah! So, an old-school, handwritten note will have to do. But, I think it turned out cute! It was a throw back to my childhood days. My best friend and I used to make candy cards for like every occasion! 😉 It’s fun coming up with clever/creative ways to incorporate the candy names into what you want to say. So, it worked perfectly to say that “it’s a joy to have a grandpa like you for so many Riesens”! 😉 The great thing about this too is that you could easily adapt it for anyone (and other holidays/occasions)! Candy cards are super simple, yet sweet and fun!
Happy Father’s Day!!
