OK friends-let’s talk. It’s summer now and it’s my most favorite time of the year. I LOVE having my boys home and living life on my own schedule. I want to spend time with my boys reading and eating popsicles on the front porch and going to the pool. So during the summer I usually try to cut back on my blogging hours a little. This summer I have decided to try something new. We’re going to have Throwback Thursdays on Crazy Little Projects during the months of June and July. Every Tuesday you will get a new project and on Thursdays I will repost a favorite from years past. I feel like there are some fun projects on CLP that get a little buried and I think you will love them. And this will allow me more time to spend with my boys.
So, today I am giving you a reader favorite, the Candy Birthday Wreath. This originally appeared in September of 2014 and has been a HUGE hit. And….today is my oldest’s birthday (he’s a teenager now!) so I thought this would be a fun Throwback Thursday to start with. I hope you love it!
When I think of Fall I often think of wreaths. But-I confess I am not that big of a wreath fan. (That almost seems to be blasphemy in the blogging world!) I AM a fan of candy though. And birthdays. So I decided to take the classic wreath and add a twist…of candy! Here’s a Candy Birthday Wreath.
I did a candy birthday cake a few months back and it was such a big hit and I have had so much fun giving candy birthday cakes to friends and family that I thought it would be fun to try this wreath.
Let’s make one!
How to Make a Candy Birthday Wreath:
- Wreath Form
- Large bow
- Hot glue
- Candy-get a variety
- Small piece of ribbon
I started by gluing the big bow to the top of the wreath:
Then, simply begin gluing candy to the wreath all the way around overlapping as needed.
If you are using chocolate just be careful that the glue isn’t so hot that is is melting the chocolate.
On the back add a small loop of ribbon to hang the wreath. You can pin or hot glue it in place:
And then hang it somewhere for the birthday kid to see!
