Life Savers candy is a popular candy to eat, but you can also use them to decorate with. The primary-coloured candies are just the right shades to use for Christmas decorations, either on top of a food item or alone in a craft. By baking the candy for a short time, they become soft enough to hold the candies together just as strong as glue.

Cake Wreath

Create a cake wreath using your favourite cake mix. Follow the package directions, then pour the batter into a bundt pan. Bake at 162 degrees Cor at least 40 minutes or until the cake is baked in the centre. Remove the cake from the bundt pan by inverting it on to a plate. When you cool the cake, decorate it with green frosting and use red Life Savers as decoration.

Candy Trim

Making ornaments out of candy is an easy and inexpensive Christmas decoration. Lay waxed paper on top of flat baking tray. Unwrap Life Savers candies, and arrange them onto waxed paper in the desired shape such as a tree, wreath or candy cane. Position the candies in each shape so that they are touching. Bake at 176 degrees Cor 2 or 3 minutes or until the candies soften. Oven temperatures may vary, so watch the candy closely so they will not over-bake and flatten.

Remove the Life Savers from the oven and immediately push a wire ornament hanger into the top, middle candy. Cool and remove from waxed paper. You can make these candy ornaments as a class project or to give away as gifts.

Cupcake Toppers

Whimsical and edible cupcake toppers are fun to use for a Christmas party decoration. Frost the cupcake as usual, then use the Life Savers as the cupcake toppers. Position two or three candies together, and use icing in a cake decorating tube to create Christmas balls. Stack three white candies together, and decorate the stack as a snowman. Position a green candy in the middle of the cupcake, and use red icing to create a bow. Let kids make this decorating idea as a Christmas party activity.
