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…

This whole time I was thinking that you had braided the yarn! Wow. You’re sooo cool!
Such a cute idea 🙂
Good idea! How do I keep the kids away from it long enough to enjoy the aesthethics of it?! 🙂
It went together so fast that you really do find yourself getting buried in candy. Pretty fun.
And actually very pretty on the wall too.
Welllll….I’m thinking that this is the garland that you hang really high–you know, up by the ceiling—like crown molding! :]
