Once, many years ago, I made an M&M wreath by forming a wire coat hanger into a circle and then wiring little cellophane wrapped packs of M&Ms onto it. It was really pretty, but very time consuming and it took a lot of M&Ms. I have never forgotten it though and I sometimes consider making another one. Because of another project I am working on, I found myself with some extra 4" metal rings and I decided that maybe a mini-wreath would be an awesome little gift. I gathered my supplies to try it out.

I baked banana bread the other day and decided to share some with a friend. I wrapped the bread in foil, put a band of gift wrap around it, then used the wreath on top as an extra treat! I think this is will be an apppreciated gift, don't you? I hope so.
This is a project that would definitly lend itself to working with a group or at least a partner. Someone could cut the plastic, someone could fill them, someone could tie them Once you have a bunch of bundles, everyone could start wrapping. It sounds like a good family project to me!
You could make a large one the same way. (Just put more candies in a bundle to make them bigger). But, I really like the small ones because the large ones start looking terribly shabby when you start cutting off the candy to eat! These little ones won't matter so much. Plus, they take less than a full 12 oz. bag to make so you can share the fun with more people. They are super easy to make, so go ahead! Give it a try.
