I made this wreath to hang on the INSIDE of our door for Halloween. I didn't want to worry about the outside temperature, bugs and other creatures getting to it. It was also nice for us to be able to enjoy looking at it every day! Talk about time consuming... but I've had it for years and it's still holding up nicely!
Buy wire wreath frame (small or large)
) Tie a piece of ribbon around the end of each tootsie roll and then tie the tootsie roll to the wire frame. I used curly ribbon but whatever is easiest for you to work with will do. Make sure you tie the ribbon in a knot and cut the excess ribbon as you go.
On the very outside of the wreath, tie orange/ black colored Halloween candy so that it makes a border around the tootsie rolls. Do the same on the inside of the wreath. I don't remember what kind of candy I used, I just bought it for the colors!
Continue this process until the wire frame is full and candy is tightly packed together.
Make a bow and attach with wire
