Visions of Sugarplums

I found this candy wreath in a magazine after Christmas last year. If was first on my list of holiday crafts for this season. Erin helped me choose all the big lollipops and candy sticks. I filled in with Jolly Ranchers, peppermints, gum balls, flavored Tootsie Rolls, and bright ribbon.
I planned to hang it over my kitchen window attached to the curtain rod but it was too heavy. With a little wire on the back it is secure to the wall except for anyone tempted to try and sneak a treat. Unfortunately for them they are all glued on tight! I am hoping to package it up and see if it lasts for next year. I love the bright fun colors so it might be up through Valentine's Day!

You might want to spray that with something if you're going to save it for a year, lest the ants beat you to it!
