hard candy christmas wreath craft for christmas decoratingSupplies:
1 coat hanger
Approximately 30 pieces of assorted, wrapped hard candies, suckers, etc.
Approximately 30 pieces of colorful curling ribbon, cut into 8" pieces
Wire cutters
Pliers to bend the hanger
Masking tape
A dull pair of scissors to curl the ribbon 
Unbend the hanger and cut it in half (this will be enough for 2 kids).
Bend the 1/2 hanger into a circle leaving about 4" at the top to make a hook. Twist the end to make it look like a circle with a hook on it.
Cut your curling ribbon into 8" pieces.
Fold your ribbon in half. In the middle of that ribbon tie one piece of candy. Tie it on the end of the candy where the paper twists.
Now tie the candy with 2 knots tightly on to the hanger. Tie the candy right next to the wire to help cover it up. Use the scissors to curl the ribbon on each end. Repeat the process for all your candy pieces.
