Four candy container tubes filled with candy

Every year I see those candy tube containers full of various candies in stores to use as stocking stuffers. They are really cute and I decided I wanted to try and make them myself. I found tubes of various sizes online and ordered ones I thought would work. I then spent some time in the Christmas candy aisle at the grocery store and found a variety of different holiday M&Ms. From there I got to work!

Personalized Candy Tube Container Stocking Stuffers

These personalized Candy Tube Containers are easy to make using a Cricut machine  (I have the Cricut Maker and I LOVE it). The lettering is too detailed to cut by hand, or at least too detailed for ME to cut by hand but you’re welcome to try!

I created an SVG file for the design of the letters. You can get the SVG file for free by clicking below:

STEP 2: Cutting the Candy Tube Container Tray SVG

Choose your desired color of vinyl adhesive and cut per the Cricut machine prompts. You can use whatever colors and type of vinyl you wish.

STEP 3: Weeding the Merry Little Christmas Tray Letters and Shapes

After cutting all of the letters and shapes, carefully peel away the excess vinyl that is not part of the letters and shapes from the liner. Be careful not to pull off any of the letters or shapes.

STEP 4: Transferring the Lettering to the Candy Tube Containers

Put together the two pieces of cut vinyl for the tube caps. Apply the transfer tape to the red candy cane circle.
