Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Adapt this wreath to your holiday color scheme. If it's metallic silver, use silver wrapped candies, silver beads and silver ribbons. If you prefer a red color scheme, scan the candy section for red wrapped candies, and use red holiday balls, beads and ribbons.
