Here is an original idea made from very inexpensive items found around the house that really looks great when put together.  

Items you need:
- Candy canes
- Hot glue gun/ glue sticks
- canning jar lid (or any circular item to glue the canes to)
- Ribbon
- Tape (optional)

Step 1: Making the base and starting the wreath

I used the lid of a canning jar to affix the candy canes to.  To make the base more smooth and curvy tape around it until it is a circular cylinder shape.  (use clear packaging tape or any color tape you'd like)

After establishing a base make sure the hot glue gun is fully heated and begin by gluing one lay of candy canes around the circle.  Make sure each candy cane comes out perpendicular to the tangent line of the circle at each point.  Place the candy cans as close together as possible.
That's so cool!
wow greatttt
