Candy Cane Wreath

This is my last time sharing for the Handmade Christmas series we’ve been having the past 2 weeks. I have loved it; how about you?

A Homemade Christmas

Today, I’m sharing a pinterest find I pinned last year and just decided to make this year.

The great thing about this wreath is this: if it doesn’t turn out, you can always just eat the candy canes. {can you tell there’s a story behind this?}

All you need for this wreath is candy canes, ribbon, & some super strong glue {such as E6000}. I picked up most of my supplies at Kmart.

It’s all pretty self explanatory. Just make a bunch of hearts with your candy canes, glue them together, and add some ribbon.

Let it dry for a while {as recommended on the package} and then put it up wherever your “heart” {har har har!} desires. Although, it’s probably best not to put it on a door that will get slammed since candy canes are quite a bit more breakable than pinecone clusters.

You may notice my wreath is pictured on a table, not on a door?

That’s because I chose to use hot glue instead of E6000. DumbDumbDumb. Learn from my mistakes, ok? Even though my glue was not strong enough to hang the candy canes on a door, I still love the look of it on my coffee table. So festive!

That’s why it’s handy that I can always eat these little guys even though my “wreath” didn’t turn out exactly as I hoped. I trust that you are a better rule-follower than I am.

Right?

    the hot glue hold wasn’t strong enough to keep it together as a hanging wreath. I definitely considered using it on my kitchen table, but I already have something else on there now. 🙂
