One way to not eat all the candy? Use it to make colorful wreaths for your front door. First, assemble an assortment of old-fashioned candies in fall colors, like Mary Janes, Bit-O-Honey, Rolos, Werther’s Original, Tootsie Rolls, Caramel Creams, and Brach’s hard candies. Wrap a 16-inch styrofoam wreath form in white ribbon and attach the candies in an overlapping pattern with a hot glue gun. Finish by attaching a yellow, magenta, or orange bow to the bottom of the wreath.
(Pictured above is a similar, but more time-consuming version that requires tying and curling orange, black, and white ribbons around a wire circle, or a stretched out coat hanger, then tying individual pieces of candy to the ribbons to be cut off later by trick-or treaters.)
