This is one of those fun, fast, easy and REALLY cute little crafty things that you can whip up while the kids are at school.
Grab up some twisty wrapped Halloween candy—taffy, Tootsie rolls, Jolly Ranchers–whatever. I liked the looks of the Candy Corn and peanut butter taffies…a bit more Halloweenish to me.
Using black, orange or whatever color string or yarn—chain 10 and join in a circle–this will be the loop you can hang your candy chain with when you are all finished. Now, just continue to chain about 15 more stitches.
Take your hook out of the last chain and wrap it around one end of the candy.
Pull the stitch to hold the candy tight.
Now, wrap the string around the other end of the candy–twice should do it.
Put your hook under the string across the candy. Grab the yarn and pull it under.
Continue to chain 15 more stitches. Keep adding candy until you are buried in candy garland. What a way to go!
It will be a lovely thing—that could wrap clear around the house if you’d like. Just depends on how much candy you have and how long you sit there stitching.
As I said, fun, fast, easy and sooooo cute. You’ll be crowned “Super Mom” for sure.
There’s only one teeny tiny problem that I can see…
