I love the candy cane wreath. I am wondering how it would work out with real candy canes?

What a fun collection! I love candy canes – they’re probably my favorite holiday candy, even though they’re simple. I really like the looks of that candy cane marshmallow pop.

These are such awesome ideas. I think the wreath is my favorite!

I love candy canes, and these ideas are beautiful and adorable. Anything with a candy cane seems like so much fun!
