Let the kids pick out their favorite Christmas candies wrapped in red, green, gold, silver or multi-colors for this fun family activity. A candy wreath makes a fantastic gift for neighbors. If you are sure to add only 25 pieces to each wreath it is also a tasty way to count down the days until Christmas with a candy a day.
You will need:
(Makes 2 wreaths)
1 wire coat hanger
50 pieces of wrapped hard candies
50 8” pieces of curling ribbon
Pliers to bend hanger
Scissors to curl the ribbon
Unbend the hanger and cut it in half.
Bend the 1/2 hanger into a circle leaving about 4" at the top to make a hook. Twist the end to make it look like a circle with a hook on it.
Cut your curling ribbon into 8" pieces.
Fold your ribbon in half. In the middle of that ribbon tie one piece of candy. Tie it on the end of the candy where the paper twists.
Now tie the candy with 2 knots tightly on to the hanger. Tie the candy right next to the wire to help cover it up.
Use the scissors to curl the ribbon on each end.
Repeat the process for all your candy pieces.
