Candy Themed Christmas Decoration

Christmas Lights DIY Party Decoration

Sisters Know Best got together with mom this past weekend and while talking one night we made this little project – Candy Themed Christmas Decoration. It required little effort while we rambled on about life. FUN! These would look great on top of a cake or cupcakes, squiggled around a table or in a candy dish. Christmas Light Candy Decoration

Okay, here we go. There is really no wrong way to make these. The colors look wonderful and they are such a cute idea that your guests will love them!

Christmas Light Candy DecorationSupplies:

  • Peanut M&M’s
  • Mike & Ike’s (Green Only)
  • Green Icing
  • Sharp Knife
  • Cup of Hot Water
  • One Paper Towel
  • One piece of Wax Paper (Optional)


This is one of the easiest things you will ever do. Ready?

Separate green Mike & Ike’s from the rest of the colors.

Put sharp knife in hot water for a few seconds. Wipe dry with paper towel.

Slice the Mike & Ike’s in half.

Firmly press the cut side of the Mike & Ike against the fattest end of the Peanut M&M.

Use green icing to draw out a string for the lights.

Place the green part of the Christmas Lights on the line of green icing.

Decoration Ideas:

  • Draw a line of icing along the food table at a holiday party.
  • Draw a line of icing along the side of a cake and “hand” the lights on the edges of the cake and top of it.
  • Decorate cupcakes with a small line or single Christmas light.
  • Fill a candy bowl full of them for a sweet snack.
