"Christmas Candy Wreath"

I love to make all types of ornaments, especially with fabric. But this time I decided to make something special, a Candy Ornament that you can eat after the Holidays. If you choose to or not.

These are the items you need:

1 white chenille stem 6mm x 12 inch
1 red metallic trim 7 1/2 inch long knotted at the end
7 spearmint starlight mints
21 strips of red streamer 7 1/2 inch long
scissors to cut and curl

Instructions:

Cut Red Metallic trim and Red Streamers. Start by twisting (2) Mints together with the end of Chenille Stem once. Add a Mint to one of the twisted Mints and go across and around once with Chenille Stem  again. Repeat this process until the end of the Stem is latched on the first twist. With (3) Red Streamers tie on Red Metallic loop with the knot on the bottom to the Candy Wreath until secured. Tie on (3) Red Streamers to the rest of all (6) twisted areas. Use the scissors to curl the tied Streamers. Now you have a sweet holiday festive ornament, good enough to eat!
