This year I wanted to do something fun for the kids’ bedroom and build a little Winter Wonderland. Will be sharing their entire tree and Christmas decorated room soon.
I made my own peppermint candy ornaments since they were selling for $15 each and I didn’t want to spend $120 in those “suckers” (see what I did there! Ha).
Paper, pencil and scissors
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
STEP 1 – I traced the disc on a piece of paper
STEP 2 – I eyeballed the measurements and divided the circle in 8 slices.
Shadow the ones that you want to keep as the other ones will be cut out.
STEP 3 – Cut the slices traced above. Make sure you don’t cut all the way to the middle as shown below.
STEP 4 – trace the “blades” onto the felt with a sharpie and cut the felt just like you did to the paper
STEP 5 – glue the cutout felt to the styrofoam disc using tacky glue
Step 6 – I used old white branches as sticks for the ornaments since they would be hidden in the tree anyway
And VOILA! You have DIY Peppermint Candy Ornaments!
