This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. Holiday Candy Display 

I was walking through Michael’s craft store today and came upon these cute silver frame ornaments. They gave me the idea to make interesting hooks like from Anthropologie. My friend had a star one years ago that I always loved. I found a picture of the star from an old listing on eBay that does not do it justice.


This is fun way to display candy for parties or every day eating. You can also use these year-round as hooks for keys or whatnot.

Instructions Holiday Candy Display

Drill into the star ornament using a bit the size of or a little smaller than your screw in hooks. Screw in the hooks almost all the way.

Print out the word JOY in upper case using your favorite font. We used Gist font. Then, use the back of the picture frame to create a circle around the letter. Cut out the letters.  This does not have to be precise because the frame usually has some give on the edges. Place the letter paper into the frame cutting as needed to make it fit.

Measure the way and space out the 3 dots where the hooks will go. Screw the hooks straight into the wall. We used Grip Right Fas’ners. 1-1/4″ Prime Guard Exterior Screws. They matched the look of the silver metal on the ornaments quite well. Finish by screwing the hooks so that some of it will go into the wall. You will have very strong hooks now.

Fill the hanging jars with holiday candy and place onto the hooks. As the candy is eaten, you can fill up with other types even some that might require a spoon or thongs. We found the jars with hanging pieces already on them, if you cannot find that type, here is a tutorial on how to make your own hang apparatuses.

Pro Tip: If you have several other types of candy, you can make more hooks or add more jars to the hooks. Also, the further you space the hooks apart, the more jars you can hang from them.

After the party, you can also use these as stocking hangers.

  1. It looks like it would arrive after Christmas so I’m thinking post-holiday baking projects for delivery around the neighborhood.

  2. My family will eat some of the candies but since I love baking and my family loves treats i would make some goodies for my family and my coworkers.

  3. If I won, I would give some of this candy to the kids and then use some for my holiday recipes! Every year I make a rice krispy wreath and I think I would use the Christmas Sixlets to make “ornaments” on the wreath. The possibilities are endless!

  4. I will donate it to my daughter’s classroom for treats (after sneaking a few peanut butter Santas for myself – shhh! Don’t tell!)

  5. I will use the candy for stocking stuffer goodie bags for my kids and some will be used to decorate cookies, cupcakes or cake! Thanks for sharing this fabulous post!

  6. I am a housekeeper. I clean motel rooms. I make very little money but on the rare occasion that someone leaves a tip, I save those up and buy candy to put in the rooms. The owner offers very little amenities to the guests so it’s my way of thanking them. I would share this candy if I won.

  7. I won, I would put the candy in Christmas stockings for my daughter, nieces and nephew, and my students at school.

  8. If I won I would use the Candy to fill up all the stockings. This is ideal gifts for stocking stuffers. Thank-you for a great giveaway 🙂

  9. What would I do with this fab candy should I win? I would be the most popular G-ma this year! lol I think I’d use it at our holiday parties. We have so many! Birthdays! Yes, December Birthdays AND Christmas, and New Years. Lots of parties and the kids would LOVE this candy.. and us women, too.

  10. My computer and I hate the Gleam form. Can’t open it in Chrome, have to use a different browser, and some of their links do not work.
