Plastic Canvas Hershey's Kissy

This is going to be a little container for a small candy.  A Hershey Kiss would be perfect.

Step 1: Cut three squares of plastic canvas 2 inches by 2 inches (or 10 holes by 10 holes).

Step 2: Cover each in yarn using the Continental needlepoint stitch.  Any stitch will do but I think this one is easy to master.

Step 3: Fill 'em in.  If you need more information, e-mail me.

Step 4:  Put wrong sides of 2 together and whip stitch them together.

Step 5:  Without cutting the yarn take the last square and stitch two sides of it to the first one. Now when that is done you have a yawning hole looking at you with raw edges that need to be whipped BUT NOT TOGETHER. The mouth needs to be open.

Step 6:  I like to reinforce the corners so they look prettier and do not have a scratchy edge. Now you can add some eye to the top or a nose but just be sure to include a Kiss for the lucky person to receive you craft.


  1. Love this! Would it be too much to try and get 25 of these done for Henry's class? Just kidding! Cannot wait to attempt this project.

  2. Can I do 25? Remember the topiary trees? Might I suggest you give the teacher and her assistant one each and kisses for the children! I will be sending you the cut plastic canvas and directions. Please supply the kisses. Miss you all very much! If you start now you will have enough for all the children in Bridget's room.
