Ok everyone, here is my first post with a pic
Lately I have been into making wreaths out of candy for people.http://members.shaw.ca/robertbrandt/images/candy_wreath1.jpg
This is the one I made my mother in law for Valentines Dayhttp://members.shaw.ca/robertbrandt/images/candy_wreath2.jpg
It is 100% fine to eat! I will try to post instructions with pictures.
You can either buy a wire wreath shape, (I just make them out of coat hangers which I bend then use a strong tape, and tape the overlapping wire together).
Then you take a very very long string (I use a "small" cotton string, more hardware then crafts, (I found string got too tangled up)
Fold your string in two and tie it to the top of your wreath with the knot going "around" the wire.
Then you start to make another knot, but before you tie it too tightly you slip the end of three wrapped candies in it, then finish your knot.
You just keep repeating this process, every once in awhile pushing the candies up to keep the wreath looking full.
At the end tie a bow if you wish. Before I put the candies into the knots, I like to make sure that both ends of the candy wrapper is twisted tightly. If your knots aren't tight enough, the Candy may fall off the finished product.
When eating the candy, you simply unwrap a candy and slide it out, leaving the wrapper on the wreath!
Hope these make sense. I will try to make a new one tonight with step by step pics.
