Did you guess the weight of the wreath correctly?

Thanks to all of you who left comments on my candy wreath. Nobody guessed the correct weight which was.................2.378kg. Yes it took almost three tins of Celebrations!!

So, onto the winner............... who is Marg who said "Wow Claire, that's fabulous! all that yummy chocolate. I daren't buy any but would love to know how you did it. My guess is 1.5kg. (even though I'm a lb oz sort of girl)" . So Marg if you can send me your details and I'll pop a little something in the post for you.

If you didn't win this time, be sure to check back here tomorrow as I will be giving you the chance to win a little something in exchange for some love!! Also, just a heads up that I'll be doing another CSN giveaway in the next couple of days, so you'll need to keep your eye's peeled for that. 

Also, as so many of you asked how I made the wreath I've attached a You Tube video, which I felt was the most useful (you would not believe how many videos and tutorials there are out there and yes I trawled through a fair number of them before finding this one).

I'll leave you with a few hints and tips that I've discovered, if you can't get hold of wire coat hangers your local florists should be able to help you out for a very small fee. I've also made these wreaths using polystyrene wreath frames and a hot glue gun as it greatly reduces the number of sweets you use! You can also use curling ribbon to attach the sweets as again it reduces the number required.



  1. Congratulations to Marg!! Thanks for the tutorial and I can't believe it took that many sweets!!! Jaqui x

  2. Thank you Claire for running this, it seems odd to win with a guess that's so far out! Thank you for the tutorial. Marg x
