Holiday Peppermint Wreath

Wow, the time sure flies during the holidays!! We’re getting started on Christmas crafts earlier and earlier each year. So I thought why not get started too.  This is my first actual Christmas craft of the year!! WOOHOO!

I’ve been wanting to make a peppermint wreath for years!!!  They look so pretty and simple to do and I was thrilled that I had finished mine in about 20 minutes.  This is also a perfect project for a craft night with the girls!

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Wreath (any size)
  • Peppermints (about two bags)
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun and Glue
  • Ribbon
  • (Optional) Holiday Ornament

Instructions:

Start off by picking the size wreath you want.  I chose a 12″ wreath form.  This style foam wreath works best as the face and sides are pretty flat and easy to glue to.

Unwrap your peppermints.  This part takes the longest…but on the plus side, you can eat the broken ones!

 

If you can recruit your kids for the unwrapping, do it! Although they weren’t pleased when I told them I was using them for a wreath.  They wanted to eat it all.

Add a little glue to the back of the candy and place it on the wreath. I started on the top and worked my way around in rows. This is super easy.  There’s no wrong way to make this wreath!!

Continue gluing the candy in rows until it is completely covered.  You can leave the back uncovered to save some time.

Once you’re done, then you can add some decorative ribbon around the top to hang! I found this adorable car ornament at the craft store and I knew it would be perfect to accent the wreath.  I glued it to the inside of the wreath.

I am really excited with how this wreath turned out!! I think it looks so pretty.  I might even cover some foam cones to match next!
