Autumn is very beautiful with all of these yellow, red and orange leaves. Wreaths are a great way to bring bright fall colors to your home! And what can be better than unique DIY wreaths? If you are on a lookout for wonderful fall wreath ideas, check out this colorful candy wreath. The step-by-step tutorial below will show you how to make a fall candy wreath within one hour.

You will need:

  • Wreath frame
  • Orange tissue paper of crepe paper streamer
  • Small yellow M&M packs
  • Small red Skittles packs
  • Card stock in fall colors
  • Double sided adhesive tape
  • Narrow ribbon
  • A glue gun with a glue stick

Step 1. First of all, you will need a wreath frame. Foam wreaths are quite expensive. You can make a wreath frame yourself or buy a cheap metal or straw wreath at a craft store or at a dollar store.

I didn’t have a frame at home, so I decided to make one myself. I had a brown cardboard box at home. Using a pair of compasses, I draw two parts of the wreath on the cardboard. I cut these parts and glue them together.

My wreath is quite small, only 12 inches.

Step 2.To disguise the brown cardboard, I wrapped it with strips of orange tissue paper. You can also use crepe paper streamer.

Step 3. Attach candy pieces to the frame.

To make this candy wreath, I used small yellow M&M packs (1.74 oz) and small red Skittles packs. In this example, 4 M&M packs and 4 Skittles packs were used.

Using double-sided adhesive tape, secure candy pieces to the frame. I alternated red and yellow packs.

Step 5. The last thing is to make a hanger.

I used narrow yellow ribbon. You can use something different. Make a loop out of the ribbon and secure it to the back of the wreath using hot glue and clear packing tape over it.
