Peppermint Candy Wreath

This festive holiday wreath smells as good as it looks.


By: Myra Hope

Materials Needed:

  • 3 packages (or more) peppermint candies
  • 1 large box of Red Hots candies
  • 12" white foam wreath form
  • hot glue gun
  • ribbon to hang wreath

Unwrap Candies

Remove wrappers from peppermint candies.

Glue Peppermint Candies

Start hot-gluing the peppermints onto the inner circle at an angle. You’ll want to get in as many peppermints as possible, so glue the peppermints in circles (and alternating) around the wreath form.



Fill In With Red Hots

When all the peppermints are glued, add a ring of Red Hots to fill some white space.
Note: For this project the "rings" of peppermints started at the same place, at the top of the wreath, so if there is not enough space to finish with a whole peppermint, half could be used.



Add Ribbon

Hang the peppermint wreath with a couple pieces of ribbon. This wreath is festive and cheery and done for less than $9.
