Happy Holidays: DIY Marshmallow & Candy Christmas Wreath

Hi everyone! I’m Barbara from Chase the Star, I’m so excited to be here sharing my latest holiday project with you!

I love traditional wreaths at Christmas time, but sometimes it’s nice to think ‘outside the box’ and get a little creative. This year I made a wreath using what I had on hand in my craft closet, and in my pantry!

This was such an easy wreath to make! If you want to make one for yourself, here’s how:

Materials:

Twine wreath

Hot glue gun (and lots of glue sticks)

1 bag of mini marshmallows

1 large bag of red candy (or 4 small bags)

Mod Podge spray (or any sealer)

About 18″ of your favorite ribbon (I used 3″ thick grosgrain ribbon for this project)

Optional: Spray Paint in white or silver

Step 1:

Spray paint your twine wreath in silver or white, and let it dry.

Step 2:

Sit in a comfortable chair and start gluing!

This is where you can get creative! Make a fun pattern or just glue the candies in random spots. The twine makes it difficult to be too neat, so don’t worry about that and have fun!

I suggest adding the candies to the front of the wreath only, this will enable it to lie flat against a door or wall.

This process goes fast, just make sure you have lots of glue sticks nearby! Don’t forget to leave a gap for your ribbon.

Step 3:

Wrap the ribbon once around the empty space on the wreath. Next you can either create a bow or just let the wreath hang from it.

Step 4:

Spray the entire piece with the Mod Podge spray (or any matte spray sealer).

Lastly, hang it indoors, and high enough so the kids can’t reach it!

A simple and sweet wreath you can whip up while watching your favorite holiday movie!
