Candy Corn Wreath

We just love decorating for Halloween, and one of our favorite things about Halloween is candy corn.  Last year we made this Pom Pom Candy Corn, so this year I thought we would stick to that theme and make a wreath to match.

I really thought this project would take my daughter a lot of time to complete.  I mean she had to glue, then wrap, then glue, then wrap and so on.  But I was wrong, this took her less than 5 minutes to make.  I was shocked.  It is so pretty and it took so little time for a six year old to make.  She was super excited to hang it up on the door after she finished, well, first she had to put it on her neck and head and walk around teasing her sister.  Then her sister had to put it on her head, I was surprised that it held up to their playing with it before we actually got to hang it up on the door.

If you like quick simple and pretty crafts that you can actually use to decorate your home, then this is the craft for you.  And you can use the idea of it for almost any holiday wreath you want, just change the colors of the boas.   Since this turned out so great and was so simple to make, I asked my daughter if she wanted to make another one for grandma and she said yes, so that is what we will be doing this weekend.

Supplies

Directions

Hot Glue

Using your glue gun, put a little glue where you want to start the yellow.

Place the end of the yellow boa on the glue, add more glue if needed.

Boa

Wrap yellow boa around wreath until you get to the same spot on the opposite side of wreath that you started at.

Then glue end of boa to wreath.

Glue End

Cut your Orange boa in half and glue one end of one half of boa just above the yellow boa on too your wreath.

Wrap the orange boa around wreath then glue the end to wreath.

Repeat on other side of wreath, so you will have orange on each side.

 Add Colorss

Now glue one end of white boa just above one orange side.

Wrap white boa around wreath and glue the end to the opposite side just above orange boa.

I am a work at home mother of two living just outside Kansas City, KS. I started crafting with my oldest daughter to spend more time with her and to get her to focus more. And I have to say it has been a great experience for us both. As a matter of fact I have created a craft monster since she tells me several times a week “Let’s do a project MOM!” My youngest is finally at an age where we can start crafting with her too, but then comes the challenge of coming up with something a toddler can do that a preschooler will enjoy also… oh the challenges of a crafting mom. I hope to inspire other parents to craft and create things with their kids.
