Making your own candy wreath allows you to customise the decoration to suit any holiday or event. Peppermint candy or red, green and white candies can be used to make a Christmas wreath. The look can be adapted for a patriotic occasion with the use of red, white and blue candies. The variations are limited only by the maker's imagination. Making candy wreaths is easy enough for children to participate, making it a fun art project for the family.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Wired coat hanger
- Curling ribbon in colours of choice
- 2 large bags of coloured wrapped candies
Stretch a wired coat hanger to form a circle.
Cut both sides of the hanger top to remove the section where the hanger twists together and the hook. Use pliers or wire cutters to cut through the wire.
Create a small loop on each end of the wire using the pliers. Hook the two loops together and then compress together to hold.
Cut the curling ribbon into 8-inch pieces.
Tie the ribbon around the centre of each candy and then knot the string onto the wire to secure.
Repeat attaching the candy to the wire wreath until compact all the way around, leaving at least 2-inches on the top to attach a bow.
Curl the excess ribbon with the scissors.
Attach a purchased, ready-made bow.
