What You’ll Need to Make an Airheads Wreath:


Start by creating a miniature wreath shape from the scrap of cardboard. I traced around a DVD to create my outer circle, and then traced a small bowl for the inner ring. Use the Xacto knife to cut out the cardboard wreath ring.

Making an Airheads Wreath for ChristmasFold each of the Airheads packages in half, and use the hot glue gun to attach the candy to the wreath form. Glue one end of the candy to one side of the cardboard wreath, flip over, and repeat on the opposite side.

Airheads Snack BreakAll of this crafting with candy might inspire you to take a little snack break. Don’t worry, that’s why we bought the BIG box of Airheads, right?!

As soon as I unpack the rest of the Christmas decorations, it’s going to be ALL about the Christmas candy (including the felt candy ornaments and “gumball machine” that I made last year!).
