Instructions

  • Place a clean piece of paper on the work surface and place a Styrofoam disc onto the paper. Lay pattern onto a Styrofoam disc. Use a ball point pen or a toothpick to draw/carve the outline of the pattern into the disc.
  • Use a liner paintbrush to paint Mod Podge onto the areas that would have been shaded in the pattern. Sprinkle wet Mod Podge with glitter. Tap off excess glitter onto the paper, then funnel the paper to return the glitter back to the glitter container.
  • Note: you can use the same pattern for all the different sized discs.
  • When you're finished making all of the peppermint candies, it's time to wrap them. If using party bags, cut the end off of the bag and insert disc. Use a twist tie to secure both ends. For cellophane cut the cellophane into squares appropriately sized for each disc. Use a little hot glue to tack it together and secure the ends with twist ties.
  • Place the wrapped candies onto the wreath form again and arrange them. Use toothpicks broken in half to secure pieces together. You can use hot glue to help hold them together as well. Line toothpicks around the wreath and take the assembled candy circle and press it down on top of the toothpicks. Tack with hot glue in a few places for added security. Tie a bow from wide white ribbon and hot glue to your wreath.

Notes

You certainly don't have to use all these different colors of glitter, you could just use red and green, or even just red if you prefer!
