If you’re looking for something to do with the box when you’re done, try this mail carrier bag, and deliver Valentines to neighbors. These cereal wreaths could be shaped into hearts for Valentine’s Day, and these Lucky Charm barrettes would make a nice handmade gift!
what you need:
- Mini plastic bowls
- White candy melts
- Lucky Charms cereal
- Vegetable oil (not pictured) – optional
- Microwave (not pictured)
- Mini spoons
- Printer (not pictured) or pen for handwritten tags
- Yarn or string
- Hole punch
Place about 30-35 candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, and follow the instructions on the package for melting in the microwave.
Once the candies are melted, add a tiny drizzle of vegetable oil and stir until completely combined. This will make the candy more smooth, and may make it easier to remove the candy from the bowl at some point.
Fill the bottom of your mini bowl with the melted candy, mixing a few pieces of cereal in the middle. Place a handful of Lucky Charms on top of the melted candy, making sure that each piece is touching a bit of the white candy. You could place a spoon in the mix, or you can place it on top, or leave it on the side. You may want to place a few pieces of cereal on top as well, so it is layered. Use the melted candy as glue, and dip the lucky charm pieces in the candy to place on top. Allow to cool and harden.
Either type or write Valentine sayings on cardstock, such as “I cereal-ously like/love you”, “Cereal-ously lucky to have you for a friend”, or “You are cereal-ously cute”. Cut the strips into tags. You may cut a triangle in the end of each tag, punch a hole in the opposite end, and attach to each bowl using yarn or string.
