Ridiculously easy, Edible Halloween Candy Wreath Craft. In just a few minutes, gather your Halloween Candy and make this door wreath for Halloween and your trick-or-treaters!
Edible Halloween Candy Wreath
We had fun with this Halloween craft. It’s an easy craft for even the most inexperienced crafter. Of course, that crafter would need to purchase a hot glue gun, if he/she doesn’t have one in the home. Then pick up a candy you won’t put entirely in your belly and start crafting your Halloween Candy Wreath.
Halloween Out of Candy Sign
Traditionally, on Halloween night my front door has our printable Out of Candy Halloween Sign after 9 pm. I guess, with this Halloween Wreath, I might never technically find myself out of candy. If you have this wreath on your front door on Halloween night, consider this candy to be eaten after you open the door for the last trick-or-treater. It might not be one you can keep for a long time.
Where to Buy a Halloween Candy Wreath
I am a work-at-home mom. So every craft actually takes a portion of my day and I calculate that time. If it isn’t something I am going to add to the website, then I add the hours the craft will take and how much I pay myself per hour (if I was working, over crafting.) If that time investment is too high, I buy. There, I admit it. I, Ashley, the owner of Frugal Coupon Living sometimes shops online more than she creates! I am sure other self-employed moms can relate!
So if making a Halloween Candy Wreath is not for you (maybe more candy would end up in your belly than on your front door), take a look at these places of Where to Buy a Halloween Candy Wreath.
Halloween Candy Wreath Supplies
I like chocolate, so that was the direction I went for my wreath. Reese’s and KitKats. Yum. I would suggest keeping it inside, because… chocolate + heat = no bueno. You could make your wreath more colorful and incorporate things like Blow-Pops, Skittles, Air Heads, etc. This might be a wreath you can put outside.
For your Halloween Candy Wreath, you need these simple supplies…
- 12” Cardboard wreath form (3/4” thickness)
- Snack size KitKats
- Snack size Reese’s
- Black 1.5” Grosgrain ribbon
- Hot glue/hot glue gun
Frugal Tip: You can also make your wreath form from a cardboard shipping box.
Halloween Candy Wreath Directions
If this is a wreath your family will snack on, don’t make this wreath too far in advanced. Also, if placing the wreath outdoors, find a snack for appropriate weather. For example, chocolate might not be a good choice for Floridians!
First, lay your cardboard wreath flat on a table.
Next, cut fives pieces of ribbon into 12” pieces. Place the ends together and cut at an angle.
Tie the five ribbons on the cardboard wreath in double knots. Space each piece out evenly from the other.
Begin by carefully gluing the Reese’s cups onto the cardboard until the wreath is full. (If you need permission, you may eat one piece of candy as you continue.)
Next start gluing the KitKat’s on top of the Reese’s cups until your wreath looks full. (That was difficult. You may have two more pieces of candy.)
Lastly, loop a black piece of ribbon through the wreath and tie into a knot to hang on your door.
Mom Hack: All remaining candy is yours. Hide the left over candy in a bag of vegetables or another place the kids won’t touch.
