Holiday Candy Wreath

Wreath made of individually twisted end wrapped candies.


Approximate Time: Several hours depending on size and fullness.


  • wire ring* (I used a 7 inch)
  • curling ribbon
  • bow
  • individually wrapped candy with twisted ends (I used approx. 6 lbs.)
  • 6 inches of wire to make loop for hanging
  • children's scissors (optional)

*If you can't find a pre-made ring, you can use a wire coat hanger. Cut with a wire cutter and form into a ring.



  1. Cut pieces of curling ribbon approximately 8 inches each.

  2. Tie a piece of curling ribbon to each piece of candy with one knot.

  3. Tie pieces of candy to wire ring with 2 knots.

  4. As the space on the ring fills up, push candies together. (The amount of candy you use will depend on how tight you push the candies together.)

  5. Attach a bow

  6. Place the 6 inches of wire through the wreath. Twist ends to form hanger.

Optional: use a piece of curling ribbon to tie a scissors to the wreath.

Shape a wire hanger into a circle. Using candies wrapped in twisted paper ends, purchase appropriate colors for holiday such as white/red peppermints for Christmas. Tie string on one end of candy and then tie that end onto hanger, pushing candies in different directions and very close together to make wreath full. Tie ribbon bow on top of wreath covering hanger hook, you can use hook to hang on door. Use ribbon to tie a pair of school scissors on hook dangle from middle. Go back and snip off any string that shows on wreath. Hang from hook on door.

When guests come or go during the holiday, have them snip a piece of candy off the wreath for a treat. This is a great group craft as everyone arrives with different candy colors, and it's more economical to share than to buy all the different colors you might like in your wreath.

I use curling ribbon to tie on the candy, and it doesn't matter if the ribbon shows. (02/20/2009)
