Okay so I'm not one to toot my own horn but I LOVE this wreath! It started as vague idea that at first wasn't panning out but turned into something amazing...well at least I think so!
I had this foam wreath and originally thought I would make a gumdrop wreath.
Then I saw this candy at the dollar store and threw 2 containers in my cart.
When I got home I emptied out the containers and separated the candy pieces by color.
Then I started gluing candy around the inner circle. Until I had something like this:
I wasn't happy with the gaps between the pieces of candy so I thought I would squeeze hot glue into the crevices to make it look like the candies were set in resin.
I liked the result but thought it needed some glitter! So I grabbed some of this glitter paint:
and painted it all over the candies and making sure to get in the crevices as well.
I went to bed happy with the results but thought it didn't look finished so I stopped by the dollar tree this morning and picked up 3 more containers of candy. 5 glue sticks and half a container of glitter paint later I had this:
Isn't it cool? I still have to figure out a way to hang it cuz it weighs like 50 lbs...serious peeps, it could be used as a weapon. Please craft responsibly. ;-)
