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.
Tools & Supplies Holiday Candy Display
3 Star Ornament Frames made of wood
3 screw in hooks
Level (there is an app level now)
Wood Drill Bit
Phillips Head Drill Bit
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.

I will put it out for when friends and family visit.
I will donate it to my daughter’s classroom for treats (after sneaking a few peanut butter Santas for myself – shhh! Don’t tell!)
I have a lot of visitors this year, this would be great to have around.

Great idea for my work Christmas party
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.
I’d create a candy buffet and let people who come to my home eat from it. Thanks.
I’m going to share it with my family, friends, and coworkers.
I won, I would put the candy in Christmas stockings for my daughter, nieces and nephew, and my students at school.
