Christmas Tree Candy Ropes

For years, people have strung popcorn, paper chains, or tinsel around their Christmas trees. This can be a sweet holiday if you make candy ropes for Christmas tree decorations. You can enjoy the candy after Christmas or make a rope to give to a friend.

You will need:

a variety of hard candy

colored plastic wrap or aluminum foil

a stapler


  1. If any of the candy is wrapped in paper that is unsuitable for Christmas, remove the wrapper and wrap the candy in colored plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

  2. Staple the ends of the wrapping on the candy together horizontally to form a rope.

  3. Tie ribbon between the candies to help disguise the staples.
