This Christmas candy decorations DIY is a quick and easy project to make. Use it to decorate with or to use as ornaments.
Welcome to day SIX of my 12 days of Christmas crafts series! These quick projects are perfect for crafters of all levels. I made these with families and kids in mind, because the holidays are such a great time for everyone to craft together. I hope you’ll enjoy these activities on your own or with friends and family.

Supplies Used in this Christmas Candy Decorations DIY:
- Red paper lanterns
- Plastic cellophane (clear)
This project is so simple! First open and make the lantern. You can always paint the lantern if you want to add swirls or other effects to it.
Cut a piece of the plastic so that it is at least four inches longer than the lantern on each end. It should also be about to fit all the way around the lantern and overlap slightly.
Wrap the lantern with the cellophane. Twist the ends and tie them with a bit of twine. You can also use twist ties instead, or small rubber bands.
Glue a small loop of twine to the bag of the “candy”. Now you can hang them on a tree, make a banner with them, or set them on a mantle for decor. I hope you’ll enjoy all twelve of my family friendly crafts! See the list below for all of the projects.
