What could be more Christmasy and old fashioned than a candy garland? It’s as simple as this: gather a few pounds of your favorite candies and glue them together into lovely, colorful strands. I had planned to stitch them together with thread but hot glue was the ticket. It goes faster than stitching and holds better. Tip: use clothespins to hold candy papers together after applying the glue. That way you can keep working while the glue sets. I used butterscotch, striped licorice mints, and assorted taffies for my garlands. Yum!
These will go on our tree after I connect them into one long garland. Fa la la la la!
