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!
DIY Marshmallow and Candy Christmas Wreath
This was such an easy wreath to make! If you want to make one for yourself, here’s how:
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
Spray paint your twine wreath in silver or white, and let it dry.
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.
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.
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!

Thanks Barbara! What a fun holiday wreath to make! Definitely hang it high enough where it doesn’t get gobbled up! Barbara has lots of fun ideas on her blog, Chase the Star. Here are a few of my favorite projects of hers:
This side table got a more modern look when she Updated it with Metallic Paint. What a difference a little paint can make!
This Mod Podge Wreath is such a fun alternative to traditional wreaths! I just love the way she mixed and matched the patterns too!
This gallery wall in her kitchen is just darling! In this post, she shares how to make DIY Plate hangers! So simple, and easy!
