80 to 100 wrapped red and white striped mint candies (Starlites)
3 1/2 feet (2 x 2 1/2 inch wide) red velveteen or satin ribbon
Several yards white string
Red electrical tape
2 feet silver ribbon or string
6-inch piece thin wire
1 wire coat hanger
Remove the hook from the coat hanger and form the hanger into a circle of 6 inches. Bind the ends together, cutting of any excess wire. Wrap the entire hanger in the red tape.
Tie 2 pieces of string together to any point in the hanger. Near the knot, form a loop from one of the pieces of string; slip in one end of a candy wrapper and tighten the knot.
Wrap the second piece of string around the other side of the candy wrapper, and partially around the wire as well, holding it tight.
Continuing in the direction of the second piece of string, alternately repeat steps 3 and 4 until all but 2 inches of the wire rind is covered with the candies. Crowd the candies as close together as possible. Knot the string.
Make a large bow with the velveteen ribbon, add it to the empty place on the wreath. Add a suspending wired loop for hanging.
