DIY Candy Christmas Wreath Video Tutorial

DIY Candy Christmas Wreath (VIDEO)

Craft supplies - lollipop, cupcake, unicorn, donut

Aren’t these candy and cupcake supplies amazing! When I saw them I fell in love with them and had to find a project to use them. They are sparkly, cute and just plain fun! Unfortunately last year’s Christmas wreath was wrecked in a snowstorm. Thus I needed a new wreath to adorn my door. So this was the perfect excuse to make something non-traditional and glittery. And did I mention I sneaked a unicorn onto the wreath – it’s subtle, but she’s there. Really, why wouldn’t you put this classic unicorn on a Christmas wreath. 

I bought all the supplies at Michael’s and probably spent way too much on this DIY lol! Sometimes when you buy craft supplies it gets expensive and you think, “hey, maybe I should just buy it?” It probably would have cost the same amount to buy it – but I do it for the process. And the candy details were so pretty, I couldn’t resist a DIY. 

Follow the video or step-by-step below to make your own.

Instructions

  1. Glue ribbon #1 in a zigzag pattern across the wreath
  2. Glue ribbon #2 in a zigzag pattern in the opposite way on the wreath in the places the first ribbon didn’t touch.
  3. Separate your sparkly branch elements
  4. Glue branches sporadically across the wreath evenly
  5. The fun part! Glue all your candy elements throughout your wreath (unicorn included)
  6. Hang your wreath and admire it.

I’m so happy with how this wreath turned out, I smile at the whimsy and sparkle every time I leave the house. Also, adding the unicorn is the sprinkles on the cupcake!
