  1. 1

    Think of what you would like to say. Think of candy bars or candy that can take the place of words in your message. Say things like "Don't Snicker", "You are such a Smartie", "Betwixt" you and me" and "You are worth a Hundred Grand."

  2. 2

    Take the message and a pencil with you to the store. Go to a variety or drug store for the best candy selection.

  3. 3

    Grab the candy that you know you will need. Think of ways to incorporate other candy into your message as you are browsing through the candy aisle.

  4. 4

    Buy a large piece of poster board and large-tipped, permanent marker. Purchase double-stick tape.

  5. 5

    Write the message out on the board with pencil. Leave a space for each piece of candy to be used as a word.

  6. 6

    Tape each piece of candy to the board in the designated spot. Mark out any unnecessary letters on the candy wrappers with the permanent marker.

  7. 7

    Write over the penciled words with the permanent marker. Erase leftover pencil marks.
