Learn how to make a candy bar and money lei for graduation.
|Supplies Needed: 24 Mini candy bars, clear plastic wrap and curling ribbon|
Divide the candy bars in half and lay them out end-to-end. Carefully lay out a long strip of plastic wrap about four inches longer than the candy bars on each end. Be careful with that plastic wrap. We all know how it can turn into a hot mess in a hurry.
Place the candy bars down the center of the plastic wrap and fold one end up so that it is flush with the bottom edge of the candy bars, like this:
Roll the plastic wrap around the candy bars until you have a tube like this:
Cut 6-8 inch pieces of curling ribbon and tie one in between each candy bar.
Tie the two ends together using more curling ribbon.
Repeat for the second set of candy bars and your candy bar lei is all done!
If you want to make this gift even better, you could make little money bows and attach them in between each candy. Just fold a bill in half, accordion fold it lengthwise, then gather it in the middle to make a bow and tie it to the lei with some curling ribbon.
Your graduate is going to be all smiles when you give them this awesome graduation lei!
