Candy Christmas Wreath

This candy wreath is a fun Christmas decoration and makes a tasty treat when it's time to pull the decorations down - if it lasts that long! Making the wreath is pretty simple once you get the hang of wiring on the candy.

To Make the Candy Wreath you will need:

  • Heavy gauge wire
  • Lighter florists wire
  • Wrapped candy (I used three 200gm packets)

1. Make a circle with the heavy gauge wire, use two layers for extra strength, and bind together with the finer wire. I made a circle about 20cm across.

2. Wire each piece of wrapped candy individually onto the wire loop, pushing them together on the wire as you go along until the wreath is full.

3. Hot glue on a few extra candies to fill in the gaps if you need to .

4. Finish the wreath off with some curled ribbon or a Christmas decoration
