How to make Candy leis

How to make candy leis.
saran wrap either clear or colored
spooled ribbon to tie and
Buckets of candy, little trinkets or large candy bars, gum etc. If you can wrap it in saran wrap it can be made into a lei!


First you need to gather gum, chocolates or hard candy. You can use anything!
Use saran wrap or colored saran wrap.
Need a spool of curly ribbon, scissors

Carefully lay out about a yard and a half of saran wrap onto table.
(length may vary according to how long or short you wish your lei to be)

Lay candy across the middle of saran and space approximately 1/2inch apart

Once Candy is laid across saran, carefully fold the saran wrap up to top,
make sure candy laes flat and is secure in wrap.

Fold the saran again so that it is snug and makes a long tube with candy in middle.

Cut strips of curly ribbon into 2 inch strips.

Tie ribbon at the start of candy lei.

Continue to tie curly ribbon after each peice of candy (choc bar or gum) or candy cluster (multiple hard candies) to finish the lei off gather the end of the lei and tie curly ribbon snuggly around both ends. Then curl each ribbon by taking the scissors and pulling it tightly against the ribbon ends, the ribbon will curl.
You can make a gum lei, cookie lei whatever lei you wish. If it will wrap you can turn it into a lei.
