I saw all of the other candy wreaths on here and I just had to make one for my husbands office.

I used a 15" wire wreath that I got at the thrift store for 50 cents. I used 7 rolls of multi-colored ribbon that I also got at the thrift store for $1.50.

I bought bags and bags of minature candies to attach to it. I used a hole punch on the candy bars and threaded the ribbon through the holes. For the mints and tootsie rolls I simply tied the ribbons around the ends. Then I tied everything to the wreath.

All went well until I was finished. It's too heavy to hang on a wall! WAY WAY too heavy....LOL!

A tip: try not to do this with a two year old by your side. It's hard to explain to them why we can't eat all of the candy ourselves.

Here is a close-up:

And here is the finished wreath:
