Using double-twist wrapped hard candy, you can weld together the treats into a tasty decoration. I used ~150 candies and made a garland more than 18 feet long (~6 m). Although this worked well for a small tree, I suggest using 250 candies for a typical 6 foot tall tree. I completed my shorter garland in about 30 minutes.
