  • Green and red Lifesavers or other hard candy
  • Tin foil
  • Cookie sheet


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 300F.
  2. Cover the cookie sheet with tin foil.
  3. Place the green candy in a baggie and crush up using the bottom of a heavy glass or rolling pin. Pieces should just be broken into pieces – not crushed to a powder.
  4. Place the red candy in another baggie and crush up the same way.
  5. Place the green candies in a circle on the foil. The pieces should touch and even overlap. Don’t be too skimpy here, otherwise the wreath will be too thin and break.

  7. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until the candies are melted together and all the pieces are attached.
  8. Allow to cool completely before removing from the foil.
