  • Sticky tape
  • Hot glue gun
  • Extra glue sticks
  • 9m Christmas ribbon
  • 9 gift bows


Step 1. Turn on the glue gun to preheat. Using the sticky tape, tape down the ends of the Kit Kats so you have a smooth rectangular shape.

Step 2. Place a two strips of hot glue on the underside of the Kit Kat and place the candy canes on the glue to set. You should use the edge of a bench to make this easy. Repeat this until all 9 sleighs are made. Turn them over.

Step 3. Place three strips of glue on the top of the Kit Kat and position 3 Milky Ways on top. Repeat for all sleighs.

Step 4. Place 3 strips of hot glue on the Milky Ways and place the Twix, then Snickers and Bounty in a row.

Step 5. Place glue on each Candy roll and stick 4 the top row of each sleigh.

Step 6. Take 1 metre of ribbon and tie around your sleigh, finishing with a bow. Stick your gift bow on top.
