Helpful Tips

  • Try using different colors of candy canes to change up the look of your wreath! Candy canes with a green stripe or bright colors can add a unique touch to your decor.
  • Focus on making the outside of the wreath a nice, round shape. The inside circle doesn't matter since it'll be covered up by the snowflake ornament.

How many candy canes do I need to make a candy cane wreath?

We used 20 candy canes to make our DIY wreath, but it's recommended to start with a larger amount. Some candy canes may be broken or warped, so buying at least 30-40 candy canes will ensure you have enough for your wreath.

Do I have to use real candy canes on my candy cane wreath?

No, you can also use plastic candy canes if you prefer. Plastic candy canes will make a stronger wreath, and you won't have to worry about them breaking as you work with them. They also provide a consistent size and shape, making it easier to create a perfectly round wreath.

What can I use to decorate the center of my candy cane wreath?

Feel free to get creative! The center of your candy cane wreath can be embellished with a glittery snowflake ornament, round ornament, a gift bow, faux poinsettia flower, evergreen sprig, or anything else that catches your eye. If you're feeling crafty, you can cut a circle from cardboard and cover it with colored paper, felt, or glitter. An old CD or DVD can also be glued in the center, with another small flat ornament or some Christmas flowers or greenery to cover the hole.

How long will this candy cane wreath last?

While we can't say for certain, our DIY wreath will likely last for one, maybe two Christmas seasons. Candy canes are fragile and prone to breaking, especially when stored for an extended period. If you want to preserve your candy cane wreath for years to come, using plastic candy canes instead of real ones is recommended. They are more durable and will hold up better in the long term.

How to store a candy cane wreath?

Since candy cane wreaths are delicate, proper storage is essential. Store them flat in a box with bubble wrap or tissue paper to protect them from damage. It's important to keep the box in a cool, dark space since candy canes can easily melt in warm summer months.
