So, remember this spring when I made the cutest jelly bean wreath EVER?!?!?!?
I was scooped! UGH. Not to dismay though folks, I am determined to make a wreath with some sort of candy on it!!!!!!!!!! And thanks to the grand re-opening of magic craft land (dollar tree), I am prepared to create a masterpiece!!!!!!!!
I started with this random assortment of junk...
1 foam wreath, 2 packs of "gripper pads", 2 packages of suckers. Scrap the ribbon...I didn't like how it looked, so I spray painted the wreath black instead :)
Ok, so after you spray paint your wreath, you'll take your gripper pad and fold it in half. run some craft wire through and twist
Continue to do that until you get the "ruffly" look you want...and make sure you have enough wire left over to twist your "flowers" onto the wreath:
Then apply your gripper pads to your wreath (I used all 8):
Lookin' good right?!??!! But needs some embellishment. That's where the suckers come in. Pull those cute confections off their sticks and apply with hot glue and MAGICCCCCCC:
So maybe its not AS cute as the candy corn version, but I am still in LURVE with it!!!!!!
