Materials used: one wire coat hanger, Jolly Rancher® hard candy, curling ribbon (red, white, and yellow), wire cutters, pliers, and a pair of scissors.
Mothers Day Gift Ideas - Step 1. Take a wire hanger and bend it into a circle. Do not worry if you do not have a perfect circle. When you attach the candy to it, any unevenness will not be visible.
Step 2. Using wire cutters, cut the top part of the hanger off.
DIY Wreath - Step 3. There are two ways to make the ring for your wreath.
b) Bend both ends of the wire into small loops using pliers. Hook the loops together; now you have a ring. If you use this method, after attaching the candy to the ring, you will need to tie a loop of narrow ribbon to the top of the wreath forming a hanger.
Note: If the wire hanger is not thick enough, use two wire hangers. Make the first ring. Bend the second hanger into a ring the same size as the first ring; leave some extra length on the wire to form small hooks. Make the small hooks and crimp them to the top of the first ring. Tape the two rings together in several places to hold them together while you are working on the wreath.
Step 4. Prepare wrapped candy and curling ribbon of the corresponding colors.
b) Now tie the candy with a full granny knot tightly onto the hanger. This way the candy is really secure onto the wreath.
c) When you tie 15-20 candy pieces to the wire, push them close together to make them more compact. Then continue adding sweets to the wreath, stopping once in awhile to push them closer together.
d) Cover the whole wire wreath base with candy. Using dull scissors, curl the ends of the curling ribbon on each Jolly Rancher piece. You can curl the ribbon as you attach each Jolly Rancher piece, or you can attach all of the sweets first and then curl the ribbon.
Mother's Day Gift Ideas - Step 6. Take a Mothers Day greeting card; punch a hole in the top of the card. Thread a piece of curling ribbon through the hole in the card and tie the card to the top center of the wreath with curling ribbon. Curl the ends of the ribbon.
Note: Instead of a greeting card, you can use a candy bar wrapped in a customized wrapper, which is then attached to the wreath.
