candy wreath

I show lots of wreaths on my blog, but this one is by far the most delicious.  I've seen these done for Christmas, but I thought it would be fun to make one for my daughter's dorm room.  A candy wreath!  The fun part about this wreath is that it comes with a little scissors so you can cut a piece of candy off when you need something sweet.  

Start with a flat wreath form... I painted mine pink.  Tie your candy on with pieces of baker's twine.  I used a bag and a half of tootsie rolls, one bag of jolly ranchers, and then a few packages of mini candy bars.  

Just keep tying the candy on until your wreath looks full...

This is a WOW gift... everyone I show it to loves it!  Happy crafting!

I will be making this project live on fox 9 morning news http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/category/233671/morning  this Saturday, June 2nd.  I will be on between 7:45 and 8:15.  Hope you will watch!
