Candy Wrapper Crafts

I’m an upcycling fiend, and I can’t resist the opportunity to make something great out of something that would end up in the trashcan or recycling bin. And in the first week of November, what do most parents have an over-abundance of? Yes, candy wrappers. We’ve all seen the bracelets and purses, but here are 7 candy wrapper crafts crafts that will blow your mind!

How adorable are these doll dress made of candy wrappers? They are definitely frame-worthy. Found on Craft Stylish.

Dum Dum wrappers—classic, colorful, and a perfect craft material. I’m crazy about this adorable flower headband made from candy wrappers. If you figure out how to make, please share. Or, you can just buy one for $18 from Maisey Daisey’s Etsy store. And check out these cute earrings from Creative Itch!

Origami made from candy wrappers? Genius! Find instructions at Origami Resource Center.

I’m not sure how to express my respect for this craft enough. I would do anything to have this awesomeness in my living room. Found on the totally inspirational website, Improvised Life.

If used in a creative way, I’d be happy with candy wrapper art on my wall. Look at this amazing map that Karyn from Sugar Swagger made with the help of her first grade class! And then check out this graphic colored candy foil art work found on the Kate Spade Tumblr. These are stitched on, but it would work also just using Mod Podge.

Ok, start digging through your trashcan. I promise I won’t tell!
