TAKE YOUR OBSESSION WITH ALL THINGS SWEET ONE STEP FURTHER WITH THIS DIY CANDY WREATH

diy-candy-sweet-christmas-wreath-colourful-fun-unique-wreath-hand-made-home-made-tutorial-glue-gun-pastel_-7

Seriously guys, I feel like all I talk to you about lately is sweeties! I swear I don’t really have that much of sweet tooth, but there is something about this time of year that sends me on a sugar high. I shared my latest fave chocolaty treat with you last week but today’s DIY is a little different, as although we’re using candy, you can’t technically eat the treats – they will be glued firmly down. However there’s nothing stopping you pinching one or two sweeties for your self in the process. Our method went a little something like this… “one for me, one for the wreath, one for me, one for the wreath”. Ha Ha! (How on earth did we have enough candy to cover an entire wreath with that mindset) 🙂

Like our Sparkly Sequin Wreath, this tutorial is so simple and is a fun and modern twist on a traditional Christmas wreath. It does feel a little like torture though, drooling over all those sweeties and not being able to eat a single one 🙂

Of all the things I love about Christmas, I think the thing I love the most is the excuse to indulge in all sorts of naughty sweet treats. I don’t think of myself as having a much of a sweet tooth, I’m definitely a savory kind of gal but once a year I like to treat myself to the odd chocolate or two, or three, or four! OK – a whole box!!! This year we wanted to make our own Christmas candy so inspired by Katherine Sabbath’s Unicorn chocolate, we made Christmas Candy Bark and it turned out to be soooooo cute!!

You Will Need:

1 Bag of White Candy Melts | 1 Bag of Pink Candy Melts | 1/2 Bag of Green Candy Melts | Selection of colorful sprinkles and edible confetti to decorate | Large baking tray | Baking Paper | Spatula | BBQ Skewer | Spoon |

First line your baking tray with baking paper.

Step 3

Now using the same method melt down your pink and green melts in separate bowls.

Step 4

Pour the white candy melt mixture onto your baking tray. At this point you might find some of your mixtures are beginning to thicken but don’t worry just simply reheat the candy to make it smooth again.
