Making a Holiday Candy Wreath

December 19, 2009

Wreath made of individually twisted end wrapped candies.

Approximate Time: Several hours depending on size and fullness.


*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.

I know it's early, but I will be making some candy wreaths for co-workers and others for Christmas. Years ago I saw one that had a poem telling people to snip a piece of candy for luck. Does anyone have that poem and would be willing to share it? I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I found this poem on this website called; A Candy Cane Christmas and thought it was nice for your candy wreaths. Just drop the cane throughout the poem unless your using candy canes to decorate it of course. Thank you for a great gift idea and reminding me that Christmas isn't so far away.

Candy Cane Friendship Wreath Poem

It's the time of year to show friends that we care,

So I put up this candy cane wreath that I'd like to share.

Please take the scissors and snip away,

Take a candy cane with which I say. . .

"A Candy Cane for you, 'cause you're such a sweet friend,

And with each little sweet treat, my thanks to you I send!"

I just found this on someone else's web site not sure if it is the same poem or not.

This wreath of cheer is made for you,
You'll find the scissors handy,
To bring you luck throughout the year,
Snip off a piece of candy.
