DIY Emergency Candy Box

If you’re like me, chances are you might forget someone’s holiday gift. Well, have no fear, for I’m going to tell you how to make a great DIY emergency candy box perfect for the holidays.

It isn’t cheap, but it’s great if you need something right away.

First, you’re going to need a shadow box, which you can get at any home goods store, along with some alphabet stickers, some sheets of plastic, and some candy that the person who is receiving it will love.


First, you layer the bottom of it with plastic or tissues, and you can from there, put a small little design with the stickers on the lid.

At this point, throw the candy in, make it look pretty, and from there, close it.  you’ll see at this point, that you probably will need some more candy because when you do hold it vertical, it slides. But, what you do then, is open it up, leave the contents that are already there, there, and from there, throw more candy in.  you can always mix this up if you feel like the person is going to get bored with the candy that they’re given.

At this point, you want to make sure that you have a nice clasp on this too. Usually, shadowboxes are fitted with a great clasp, and you don’t have to worry about it coming apart, but if you want to add another, you can get one of those clasps from a hobby store, use a glue stick to stick it on, and then from there, test it to see if it’ll close.

You should at this point have a fully finished candy box.  The box can further be decorated with stickers and such that make it personal. If you want to write a message, you can, or if you want to create a themed one, such as a Christmas candy box, then this is the perfect means to do so. By the end of this, you’ll have the finished box, and you can also wrap it up if you feel like you want to go the extra mile with it. Just be careful that you don’t tape it to the letters or stickers since they can come off. I do suggest if you choose to wrap it, wrap it on the bottom so that it doesn’t mess up your decoration.


And there you have it guys.  You can create this perfect emergency candy box. This is perfect if you’re not sure what to buy someone, and you want to really make it the best experience for them. By ensuring that you’re giving someone a great gift, such as a candy box, you’ll be able to create the perfect experience for yourself, and for others as well. By doing this, you can create a simple and yet effective gift idea for a friend, because candy is something many enjoy, and it’s a simple gift that does the job well.
