Christmas Candy Dish

Christmas Candy Dish craft

Decorate for the holiday season with this pretty poinsettia candy dish.

  • 1.

    Fold red or pink construction paper in half, then in half again, and once more in the other direction so you end up with eight sections. On one section, use a Crayola® Washable Marker to draw a pretty poinsettia flower (these are really colored leaves). With Crayola Scissors, cut out the poinsettia. Use it as a template to cut the remaining seven flowers, two or three at a time.

  • 2.

    Fold green construction paper in half, and then in thirds, to form six sections. Draw one leaf shape as a pattern. Cut out all six leaves.

  • 3.

    Draw veins on the leaves and florets in the centers of the poinsettia flowers.

  • 4.

    Coat the rim of a sturdy paper bowl with Crayola School Glue. Place the leaves, in pairs, at three equally spaced points around the bowl. Arrange the flowers around the bowl, overlapping as you go. Dry.

  • 5.

    Push up the inner leaves and flowers so they're not in your way when you reach for candy.

  • 6.

    Use Crayola Glitter Glue to decorate the poinsettias. Glue a festive ribbon bow to your bowl.
