Peppermint Christmas candy wreaths are great crafts to make and eat. You can create a melted peppermint candy wreath or use unopened hard peppermint candies for this project. Here’s how to make a Christmas candy wreath.
Pre-heat the oven to 250 degrees.
Open a bag of hard, round Christmas peppermint candies and open each individual candy piece.
Lay the candies around the edge of a pie tin. Make sure that the pieces are about a 1/2 inch from the edge of the tin and that all the pieces touch each other. Put the pie tin onto a cookie sheet.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes. Watch the candy as it heats. As soon as the candies melt together, remove the tin from the oven.
Allow the wreath to cool for 15 minutes.
Use a spatula to remove the cooled candy wreath from the pie tin.
Tie a bow with ribbon onto the wreath and a piece of ribbon around the top of the wreath to hang it for decoration.
