Auntie JoJo Strikes

Tuesday, October 12, 2010 |
Update ~
I used my low {cool} setting on my glue gun to adhere the candy. I didn't want to melt the candy or the wrapper. It worked beautifully.
Let me know if you make one.

My sweet nieces and nephew recently received a fun filled package from me. I made this sweet treat Halloween wreath for them to enjoy during Trick~or~Treat month.

It's very simple {and tasty} to make. I bought a craft wreath,loop ribbon around it to hang from and strategically adhered candy around it so that no white of the wreath showed through. A few years back I made small ones for my teaching buddies. Make sure you buy enough candy for the project and yourself. Taste testing is a must!

This will surely win me the "bestest auntie in the world award" from Mia, Molly and Will. And on a side note to my brother, this is pay back for the times you took Nicholas to the candy store before church. Nope, I didn't forget; just got even ;) I also haven't forgotten about that horrible train set you bought him that only had one noise level ~ VERY LOUD.

I added a little tag I made with a note to them on the back. Hope they enjoy their early Halloween treats.

Love and miss you all~
Auntie JoJo

You have to be the best-est Aunt in the world with this one! Very Cute!

What a wonderful (and yummy) gift! The girls and I may have to try your little craft goal will be to NOT eat all of the candy before it gets to the wreath! Mmmmmm! :)

The wreath is absolutely darling but the note to your brother...priceless!!! Thanks for the early a.m. chuckle!!!

Kat said...

How adorable! I would love a wreath like that! Super fun and snack-worthy, what more could you want? So cute!

Lorri said...

I love this! I believe I will take this idea and give my sister some pay-back as well! Thanks!

Kacey said...

Oh my word what a cute idea!! You definitely win the BEST Aunt in the world award!!

I love it!! So much fun for such a fun holiday!

Queen Bee said...

SO cute! What a nice treat!!
I would have to give it away - I would eat it in no time...

Wanda said...

I LOVE it!! You are the best auntie. I've gotta know how you adhered those goodies though. Hot Glue?

Telia said...

Auntie JoJO, I think I may have to take your que and become the best TT in the world!

P.S. Did you hot glue the candy??

So cute! What a fantastic idea, though I'd rather send then get (if you know what I mean!) Hope all is well!!

Hi Jo,

What a sweet Aunt you are!
The wreath is wonderful and they will be so thrilled to get this and yes, you will be the greatest Aunt!
I laughed about the note to your brother.

Hope that you are having a lovely week and enjoying the nice Autumn days.

Tessa said...

Too cute! :) I bet you made their day!

Kathy said...

That is so cute! Love the bow! What a sweet auntie you are. Your brother and mine sound like they're cut from the same cloth. We had the annoying toy exchange going when the kids were small as well. Will we ever grow up? :)

JMW said...

How adorable! Love the comment about your brother taking your son to the candy store before church - too funny! And I can relate to the train. My brother gave my son a t-ball toy set that a very loud and annoying beep. Every now and then, after he's played it for a while, I hide it in the closet when he's not looking. ;)

CeCe said...

I love it! I want to copy this idea, for sure.

Pay back time...
hee-hee !! My
brother got married
five years ago at
age 41, so he's just
starting a family and
I hear 'ya...It's FUN
to be the spoiler, isn't
it??? Especially after
my bro got to play that role
for so many years : ) I
think this would be fun
for a "big kid" in college
to receive in the mail and
hang in the dorm room, too!

I bet you are VERY popular!!!

Very creative! I'm sure they think that Auntie JoJo is the best in the world. What kid wouldn't with a treat like that?!!

However, I'm now becoming concerned as I read your "pay back" post. I shudder at the thought of what all my older sisters will do to me. Perhaps they will forget about all those loud noisy gifts I showered the kids with for the past decade. Fat chance!
