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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Your kids will be so proud to hang their finished Candy Corn Wreath on the door for all to see!
