Halloween Candy Wreath

{DIY Candy Wreath}
I made a candy wreath with my kids as part of this shop which has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.#CollectiveBias #Treats4All



Last Friday my kids had no school so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do some Halloween crafting. Just like me, they love Halloween decorations. and so they were super excited when I told them we'd be making a candy wreath and then having a pizza lunch before we went to the park to spend the afternoon.
A quick stop at Walmart let me pick up anything I didn't have (the candy being the most important of course.)

Wonka Mix Up
You'll find it in the Halloween candy aisle of course. The Mix Up is the one with Nerds, Laffy Taffy and SweetTarts
Foam wreath
Fabric (mine's a cheap t-shirt)
Hot glue
Cardboard
Scissors
Mod Podge

Cut the fabric into 2 inch strips. I cut mine on a diagonal because I liked how the stripes looked that way. 




Wrap the fabric around the wreath, overlapping edges and ends and securing with dots of hot glue.


This particular candy mix has the perfect pieces to decorate a wreath. Make a candy flower by gluing Laffy Taffy and a box of Nerds down on a cardboard circle. 






 Glue grape Nerds down on two more cardboard circles using Mod Podge. Cover with another coat to make sure they stay stuck.



When the glue is completely dry, use hot glue to add the 3 candy flowers to the wreath.




After the kids helped me with mine, they each made their own candy flower too. 




And when we were all done crafting we ate a pizza lunch. It was the perfect way to spend a no-school day.


Our DiGiorno Original Rising Crust Pepperoni Pizza  was a hit!
Have you used candy in your Halloween decorating before? And do you successfully keep your kids from sneaking it? :)
