Introduction

This just might be the ultimate decorating project for kids. We first dreamed this up as gumdrop garlands for a tree. But that's only the beginning. 

"Any candy you can pierce, you can make into a garland," creative director Eric Pike says. Try Swedish Fish, Lifesavers, and gummies of all sorts. Let little ones arrange the candies and hang their creations where they like. But watch out: They might gobble more than they string. 

Tips: Try wrapping a candy garland around an evergreen-draped banister for a land-of-sweets look, or swag it on a mirror. Just avoid the fireplace or other heat sources, or the treats might melt. Dental floss and waxed twine are both great for stringing.
