Taking my inspiration from old fashioned ribbon candy from Christmas holidays gone by I have been crafting a candy Christmas tree for the past few years.
A child once tried to eat one of the ornaments and cried when he found out it wasn’t real. I always make sure that I have the real thing on hand now. Can’t have crying children at Christmas time.
Ribbon candy ornaments can also be used as party favors and look charming adorning Christmas gifts.
Making a pattern is a good idea if you are going to make a lot of these ornaments.
Martha Stewart has a great ribbon candy ornament tutorial here.
