A few years back I did a Candy Birthday Wreath and it’s been a huge hit! It’s a simple, fun way to celebrate someone’s special day. So, when one of my readers suggested a Valentine’s Candy Wreath I knew that was going on my to do list! And I made it two days later! So easy, so fun and a perfect gift for anyone on Valentine’s Day! Hang it from a kid’s door, your sweetheart’s, take it to a teacher or friend!
Very fun and festive right? And seriously, what is it with Valentine’s colors and candy and crafts that makes me so happy? I just love it!
OK, want to make this for someone? Here’s how.
Valentine’s Candy Wreath:
- Wreath From (I used a heart, but if you can’t find that a circle will still be fun!)
- Curling ribbon
- Candy (get a variety of sizes so that you can overlap-you for sure want some small stuff to fill in the gaps)
- Hot glue gun
- Pins (try to get short ones with no head on them-NOT like mine. They weren’t the best. You want them to be shorter than your wreath form is wide.)
- Bow (make your own or buy one)
OK, grab your curling ribbon and curl some. Snip it into short little sections and pin them all over the wreath:
Then get your hot glue gun and glue candy all around. Try to overlap so that the wreath form doesn’t show through. Also, be careful that your glue isn’t TOO hot or it will melt the candy. I heated up my glue gun then unplugged it and let it cool for one or two minutes and then used it.
Last, just glue your bow right at the top.
If you want to hang this, pin a piece of ribbon in a loop on the back and you are all set!
Who will you give this to?
