Five Different Ways You Can Use Candy for Christmas Décor

Christmas is a season of joy, color, and, most importantly, sweetness! This year, let's add a twist to our Christmas decorations by incorporating some of the most unique candies from around the globe, courtesy of These aren't your typical holiday sweets; they bring stories, flavors, and a dash of international charm to your festive decor.

1. M&Ms Mosaic Ornaments

Our first craft takes a childhood favorite – M&Ms – and turns them into vibrant mosaic ornaments. M&Ms have a rich history, originating from the United States during World War II as a means for soldiers to enjoy chocolate without it melting. Utilizing varieties like Salted Caramel M&Ms from the UK or Mocha Mudcake M&Ms from Australia – both available on Galactic Snacks, you can create stunning patterns on foam balls. This craft not only adds color to your Christmas tree but also brings a taste of international chocolate history to your home.

2. Hershey’s Exotic Candy Wreath

Next up is a wreath using Hershey's Exotic Dark chocolates. Hershey's – an American company known for its classic milk chocolate bars – has expanded its reach globally. The Exotic Dark chocolate with Guava and Mexican Chili Almonds – a flavor inspired by India's rich spice heritage – can add an exotic and sophisticated touch to your holiday decor. Wrap these chocolates in festive foils, arrange them on a wreath frame, and intersperse them with ribbons for a wreath that's as stylish as it is sweet.

3. Trolli Sour Duo Crawlers Garland

For a touch of tangy fun, we turn to Trolli Sour Duo Crawlers. These gummies, known for their dual flavors and vibrant colors, make for an eye-catching garland. Originating from Germany, Trolli has been creating unique gummy candies since the 1940s. String these candies together and drape them around your tree or mantel for a playful and whimsical addition to your holiday decor.

4. Twizzlers Candy Cane Hearts

Twizzlers, another American classic, are known for their chewy, fruity flavor. This craft transforms Twizzlers into heart shapes, reminiscent of candy canes. Arrange these on your Christmas tree or in your windows to add a modern twist to traditional holiday motifs. This decoration not only looks charming but also celebrates this innovation in candy making, as Twizzlers has been a staple in confectionery since 1929.

5. Snickers and Skittles Christmas Tree Cones

Our final craft marries the nutty goodness of Snickers with the fruity zest of Skittles. Snickers, with its long history dating back to 1930, and Skittles, first introduced in the UK in 1974, are household names in the candy world. Cover cone-shaped Styrofoam with Snickers bars and use Skittles to add colorful details, creating a delightful and edible Christmas tree. This decoration not only brings a variety of flavors to your holiday setting but also combines two contrasting candy histories.

Each of these crafts celebrates the joy and creativity of the holiday season, integrating the rich histories and diverse origins of these beloved candies. As you embark on your crafting journey, remember that these decorations are more than just festive ornaments; they're a way to bring the world into your home during this special time of year.
