What does it cost to make a candy wreath?
I spent about $15 on everything including candy, wreath form, glue sticks and everything. We love to grab the items on Amazon because it is quick and easy.
However, you can also grab most of these items at your local Dollar Tree. Just do what is easiest for you!
You can also try using a wire clothes hanger instead of a wreath form to make the candy wreath. This will save a little money if you can get the shape just right.
Make sure to have a glue gun for Homemade candy wreaths.
It seems I always need more glue than I realize. It’s not fun to run out mid project…..Not that this has happened or anything.
We are always making something so a glue gun is an essential in our house. It stays in constant use!
