Valentine’s Day Bon Bon’s

This year as a little Valentine gift for family and friends I thought we would make some Bon Bon’s and fill them with chocolates. This is a fun craft for the kid’s to make and Miss K loved getting involved!

To make these you will need:

  • toilet rolls
  • coloured tissue paper
  • ribbon
  • selotape
  • chocolates
  • puffy fabric hearts

We grabbed most of our supplies from a discount $2 shop and supermarket. To decorate them I used some puffy fabric hearts I found but you could decorate them however you want, maybe even wrapping them in some free Valentine’s printables would look really cute!

It only takes a few minutes to put them together. First we wrapped a square of tissue around each roll and held it in place with selotape. Then popped some Hershey’s Kisses in each roll and twisted the paper at each end, holding in place I tied the ribbons and then stuck a little heart on the front of each one. It’s that easy!

    Omg LOVE THIS! I’ve been saving up toilet paper rolls for a toilet paper wreath/wall design, but it’s taking so long and I still have so few that I think this would be the perfect use for them! I am definitely going to try this–thanks for the fab idea!!

    Awww, these look great. I love that it’s a kid-friendly craft too. I may have to do something similar to this for Easter with Jon’s neices and nephews. Thanks for the inspiration.:)

  7. These look awesome! Love the ribbon:)

  8. Such a fun post — this looks like a great project for the kids to do! And it involves Hershey Kisses, which we might have to “test” to make sure they are “good enough” to go into the rolls.:)

  9. I so wish I could bring treats to my daughter’s school b/c I would so make these in a heartbeat. What a great idea and just so simple to do from household items.:)

  12. My son and I loved these! We like to make things for special occasions ans put them away in the wool room to use again. These will be perfect for Valentines day plus the fortune cookies.

  13. Time With Thea says:
