Peppermint Wreath

I love the peppermint decor this year.  I was strolling through Home Depot and found Martha Stewart's candy cane line.  I picked up a box of over sized candy canes and thought they would make a fun wreath. 
I used a fresh wreath from Costco, MS candy canes, peppermint picks and berries from Hobby Lobby. For the ornaments, sadly...I plucked them off of my "broken" ornament wreath from last year.  I loved that thing...darn it! I didn't put it in a safe spot, and it was smashed to the ground. At least I salvaged some ornaments from it? 
I wired all the candy canes and ornament balls on- to hold up in the cold weather- and hot glued all the picks.
It makes me happy! :)
I wanted to make it fun for the kids outside.  My boys don't get too excited over all the fancy Christmas decorations...
