I found the tutorial for this sweet wreath here on Martha Stewart's website. I just used peppermint swirls instead of black and orange candies and it went from being Halloween wreath to a Christmas wreath!
I didn't have a hoop so I made my own out of 16 gauge wire that I had gotten from Home Depot (found with the picture hanging supplies). It was a little too weak to support the 2 pounds of candy though so after finishing everything I had to make two more hoops and secure them to the back of it with embroidery thread. In the end everything worked out great and it only cost me $2 in candy from Dollar Tree (in case you haven't noticed yet, I love that store!). I think next year I might get some of the green peppermint swirls and alternate them with the red ones.
You could even give one of these as a gift that is not only a cute decoration but a snack as well!
