Create a sweet candy corn or chocolate drop wreath!
Use the two sizes of candy corn or chocolate drops to create a fun wreath (Figure A). A wreath is a perfect place to feature a student photo or a holiday message.
Students will enjoy making these wreaths for Halloween or Valentine’s Day and to give as a sweet gift or use as classroom décor.
Supplies Used: Adhesive, Cardstock or construction paper, Circle punch, Crayons, markers or pens, Foam dot (adhesive), Patterned paper, Scissors, White pen
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

- Die-cut the candy corn using cardstock or construction paper.
- Decorate the candy corn with crayons, markers or pens, and adhere to the circular ring (Figure C).
- Optional: position the smaller decorated candy corn to the wreath with an adhesive foam dot on the back. This will add dimension to the wreath.
- Die-cut the Ribbon, 3-D shape from patterned paper.
- Place adhesive on the back of the ends of the ribbon, and bring the ends to the middle of the ribbon to create a bow.
- Use a circle punch from plain paper to attach to the center of the bow.
- Attach the completed bow to the wreath (Main Photo).
