I'm on a candy wreath roll for 2012! During a recent trip to a restaurant supply store (I don't own or work at a restaurant - I just LOVE finding great basic house supplies there), I came across a huge 5 pound, 650 piece bag of peppermint candies (Hospitality Mints at the restaurant supply store). This entire bag cost $6.
The wreath form I used was Styrofoam. Although the color was perfect, I dislike getting flakes of Styrofoam all over, so I covered the wreaths with white satin ribbon first. Next I unwrapped 250 candies and went to town hot gluing them onto the form. I love this type of project. It's easy, fun and now my kitchen smells like peppermint!!!
