Candy Cane CD Wreath

Candy Cane Christmas Wreath

Oh my goodness!  Christmas is coming up sooo quickly!!!

I really wanted to make a wreath this year and then time just got away from me. That happens to me a lot.   Anyways, you may have noticed an abundance of candy cane projects around here lately and you’re about to get another one – yay!  I was playing around with the candy canes waiting for the hot glue to dry on our Candy Cane Reindeer and came up with a really cool looking wreath.  I just didn’t have a clue as how to put it together.  I hate having to go out and buy specialty craft supplies so I started wandering around our house looking for something I could use….I came up quite a few possibilities but ended up deciding on a CD – yep a CD.  Well it may have been a DVD.  It was on a spindle on our desk and there seemed to be a lot of them so I hope my husband doesn’t miss it ;)  I love how it turned out and I’m excited to share it with you!

What you’ll need:

  • CD/DVD
  • spray paint
  • glitter
  • polyurethane spray {optional}
  • ribbon
  • ornament
  • candy canes

I started by spray painting the CD red.  I did the first coat and then after spraying the second coat I sprinkled on some red glitter.  Once that was dry, I sprayed on a coat of polyurethane so the glitter wouldn’t get everywhere.

Candy Cane Wreath Step 1

Once the CD was completely dry, I flipped it over and laid out the candy canes.  Once I had it all figured out how they were going to be spaced I brought out the big guns.  And by big guns, I mean my mini hot glue gun ;)  One by one, I glued on all of the candy canes.

Flip it over and this is what you have.  I think it actually looks pretty awesome like this :)

The CD serves not only as the wreath form but also as a support for the ribbon hanger.  Slip a ribbon through the center of the CD and tie.

Candy Cane Wreath Step 4

I wanted the front to have a slightly more finished look so I glued on this pretty ornament I found at Target for $1.  I loved the added dimension that it gives to the wreath.

I love how it looks!

I think this wreath is super cool because with all the different colored candy canes available you could really change up the look!

  10. Cute idea. I’m glad to see the candy canes are supported enough to hang. I wasn’t sure if the candy canes would be glued on enough to stick but it looks great!

    This is a wonderful idea, and I hope you won’t be offended, but I think I will expand it to 24 candy canes and maybe add a CD on the back for additional support so that it can be used as a treat each day of December as a countdown to Christmas. Thank you for the inspiration and for a way to use those unwanted CDs.
