Candy Mickey Head Wreath

I'm not sure if anyone has ever posted this...but if you have a little extra time before your trip and need another thing to make, a Candy Mickey Head Wreath would make a cute door hanger that other guests in your hotel or even better on your cruise ship could steal a candy or two from.

Materials Needed:

2 Wire Hangers
35+ Wrapped Candies per circle (peppermints work great and are inexpensive!)
Curling Ribbon
Childs Safety Scissors

Instructions:
Straighten the hanger and then cut it in half using wire cutters (only 1 half will be used per circle). Bend one of the pieces of hanger into a circle shape. Twist one end around the other to secure, leaving about 3-inches of one of the ends free. Bend that end over to form a small circle or hook for hanging. Use a pair of pliers if necessary. If needed you can also use some duct tape to help secure the ends together. Make one large one of these for mickey's head and two smaller ones for his ears.

Use wire to attach the three rings together in the shape of Mickey's head.

Once you have the wreath base made, you can add the candy! You can use any kind of wrapped candy you like, anything from traditional peppermint rounds to suckers. About 35 of them will fill your hanger nicely, but this number can vary quite a bit from person to person because of how close they are tied together.

Cut the curling ribbon into 8-inch pieces. Take 1 piece of candy and tie it to the center of a piece of ribbon. Then, use the ribbon to tie the candy tightly onto the wreath. You can either cut off the extra ribbon or leave it. The ends can be curled to add a nice touch to your wreath. Continue this process until you have the wreath as full of candy as you like.

Then attach some curling ribbon to a child's pair of safety scissors and attach to the wreath so that those walking by can cut a piece of candy from your wreath.

Hang your wreath and a note on your door inviting those that walk by to share the candy!

I don't have a picture of what it would look like as a mickey head...but here it is with just one circle:
