Candy Striped Vintage Jello Mold Wreath

I was shopping at my local Salvation Army store ( my new favorite place to shop) when I found a bag of 12 vintage jello molds. I hesitated over even buying them but then decided just because I couldn't think of anything to do with them right now they might come in handy in the future.
Last week I needed to come up with a thrift store project so I scoured the house and found these again. Then inspiration finally hit as to what I could I do with them.
First I spray painted them with white paint. Then I proceeded to hand paint some red stripes on them.
Next came a dusting of glitter.
Then I glued them together on a cardboard form I had cut out and added a burlap bow with a bit of Christmas decor from the dollar store.
And I have a cute little candy striped vintage jello mold wreath for our front door. These do remind me of those star mints that are so popular at Christmas. For more details check out the link below.

    Can you send the Candy Striped Wreath or Candy Striped Cookie Tin recipe to my email address in place of sending it to my Facebook timeline. You just have to paint round bread tins it looks like and glue them together and then decorate the decorate the tins with a Christmas decorations. I'm not sure of the name right now, so I described the recipe to you.

    I love your wreath so very much. Does anyone else know where I could buy the molds? I don't believe I could buy one close to as beautiful.
