usually when we made it we used curling ribbon and tied off after every candy (it's easier than just wrapping around, that way you can leave it and take a break while you make it and it wont come loose)... i see some use scissors to cut the candy off... our wrappers would be left on so the wreath always looks nice, you just untwist one end to get the candy so the wrappers are still in the wreath... it's nice to see people doing old traditional things for holidays...

What a neat idea.  I've never seen anything like this before.  Thanks for posting the pictures and directions.

I ran right out and got my supplies and I'm already making one!
I have a suggestion: I cut several 1" pieces of strong tape and tacked them to the edge of my work table. At regular intervals, or when I need to stop working, I wrap the tape tightly around the fishing line and wire form and end that section. When I can work again, I just tape my fishing line on again. The candy completely covers the tape, and there's no chance of a catastrophe, now or later.
Enjoy!

This is a great project! What an easy and inexpensive gift. I know that I would love to receive one as a gift! I am going to send hubby to the store tomorrow for the candy! hehe! I'm going to try this with a plastic embroidery hoop instead of the metal ring. I will post and tell how it worked out! Should be fun!
