This tutorial will teach you how to make a basic candy lei. These leis are perfect to give out at graduation ceremonies or any other fun celebration. You can use just about any candy you’d like with this lei, however I've found that the fun size candy bars are typically the best.
Step 1: Materials
Step 2: Roll out Plastic Wrap
Step 3: Place Candy
Step 4: Roll the candy in plastic wrap
Step 5: Cut The Ribbon
Step 6: Tie the ribbon
Step 7: Curl the ribbon
To curl the ribbon you will first need your scissors. Open up the scissors and place the ribbon, close to the knot, on the blade of the scissors. Place your thumb over the ribbon and put a small amount of pressure on the ribbon as you pull the scissors down the ribbon away from the knot.
If you have never curled a ribbon before you may want to practice on some ribbon that is not tied to your lei. If you put too much pressure with your thumb you may accidentally cut the ribbon. You should end up with something like the image below.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 2-7
Step 9: Connect the two halves
