Easy Father's Day Gift From Kids...

I haven't done very much crafting lately (insert sad face here...)  I've been super busy with life, the kiddo's finishing up school for the year, my niece's wedding and showers, we took a fantastic trip to California and have just been busy enjoying the beautiful mountains here in Utah.  I am really going through some major craft withdrawls so, I need to get my fix!!!

Anywho, Hubs got his Father's Day gift early, he got spoiled rotten with lots of accessories for his new baby, (a 4wheeler).  Since he has already opened those gifts, the kids and I decided we wanted to have something to give to him on the actual day, so we put this together (he doesn't read this blog very often, so I'm hoping he doesn't see this early!):

The base is 4 boxes of Sugar Babies hot glued to a floral foam cube, then I glued tissue paper to the top and added lots of curling ribbon.  I taped the candy bars to plastic drink mixer sticks and stuck them into the foam.  That's it!  Super easy and would be a great gift for pretty much any occasion!
