To make a Christmas candy wreath like the one below you will need: a green artificial Christmas wreath, a red silk poinsettia bush (I bought this one at Wal-Mart for $1.00), Lindt assorted chocolate truffles (that I also bought at Wal-Mart), red, blue, and gold curling ribbon, a narrow red ribbon, and tools (scissors, wire cutters, and a low-temperature glue gun with glue sticks).
Christmas craft ideas - step 1. Prepare the wreath and the silk poinsettia bush.
Homemade Christmas wreaths - step 2. Cut the poinsettia flowers off the stems with wire cutters. Using hot glue, attach the flowers to the wreath in several places spacing them evenly. I glued 3 poinsettia flowers to my wreath. The bigger the wreath, the more flowers you will need.
Christmas wreath ideas - step 3.
a) Prepare Lindt assorted chocolate truffles, red, blue, and gold curling ribbon and scissors.
Note: You can use any candy you like.
b) Tie a piece of curling ribbon of the corresponding color around one of the tails of the chocolate truffle wrapper.
DIY Christmas wreaths - step 4. Attach the piece of candy to the wreath using the curling ribbon. Curl the ends of the ribbon with scissors.
I attached 4 chocolate truffles between the poinsettia flowers (a total of 12 chocolate balls for the entire wreath).
You can use more candy, if you like. It is all up to you.
Step 5. Make a hanger.
You can use any material you want. I used narrow red ribbon. Make a loop out of the ribbon and attach it to the back of the heart using hot glue or just tie it to the wreath if its possible.
You can create different variations of a candy Christmas wreath. For example, instead of silk poinsettia flowers, you can use decorative ornaments, or combine silk flowers, decorative ornaments, pinecones, and candy.
Let your imagination lead you. Beautiful candy Christmas arrangements to you!
If you're following Christmas traditions in Germany, just add four candles to this Christmas wreath with candy - and you have a proper Advent wreath.
Here are some poems you can attach to your candy wreath
"A Candy Wreath for you, 'cause you are such a sweet friend,
And with each little sweet treat, my thanks to you I send!"
"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.
