diy candy garland

March 22, 2012 | Projects | Comments

Last weekend my friend Mara came over to work on a few crafts for my baby shower, which is in just a few weeks! Eeek! One of the projects I had planned was to make garland out of Whoppers with the objective of not eating them before they make it onto the string. I didn’t think I could be up for that challenge, I mean honestly, how would I string these delicious Whoppers one by one and not pop a few? So instead, I made Mara do all of the garland making! Haha, what a sweet friend!! She did an excellent job and now I want to share this  easy DIY with you.


First quadruple the string, so it’s thick and can hold the weight of the candy. So double it and add the needle, then pull the string through, so it’s 4 times as thick. Hopefully that makes sense! : ) Ours was about 2 feet long. Tie a knot at the end, but leave extra room for hanging the garland.

String the Whoppers one by one. Mara used this gripper I have that works to open jars, to pull the needle through once the malt ball was halfway on. Otherwise, you’re fingers will slip when trying to pull the needle through the candy.

Sting as many as you would like and then tie another knot. Don’t cut the string right at the knot, you’ll need extra string to hang your garland.

You can hang this garland on a mantel (as long as the fires not lit!), staircase, window, etc. I tied a brown bow at the ends and middle of the garland, it’s a good way to hide the tack that I hung it with and it looks very pretty!
