Peppermint Candy Wreath

Well finally this weekend, I sat down and tackled making my first peppermint candy wreath!  I've had this on my to do list for the past two years and finally did it!!  This wreath was so easy to make and my daughter even assisted me in the project.  She was my little elf who unwrapped all of the peppermints!!  The total project took me a little less than 2 hours to make.  I found this great tutorial over at My Blessed Life and you can find the easy tutorial right here.   I did find that because the peppermints come in different sizes and shapes you have to watch the spacing of the peppermints and don't toss the odd shaped peppermints - you might need these little guys to fill in some odd spaces.   Next time, I make another peppermint wreath I will definitley spray the wreath with a clear glaze to seal the candies.  I didn't spray my wreath until the next day and the candies started to get really sticky!!  

Happy Holiday Crafting!!
