Peppermint Garlands to Trim the Tree!

Making Peppermint Garlands
This year we attempted to make some edible ornaments and first on our list was a peppermint garland. I love all things peppermint: patties, candy canes, peppermint tea, peppermint bark...the list goes on and on. 
I also love how cheerful peppermint looks. Since it's an old-fashioned candy there's a bit of nostalgia there too!
Peppermint garlands are simple to make. All you need is a ribbon or some thin string or you can use some natural looking twine (like we did), peppermint candies and a hot glue gun. 

Simply add a bead of hot glue to two peppermint candies and sandwich your ribbon, string or twine between them.

Make your garland as short or as long as you like, trim your tree, decorate your mantle or string them above doorways for a festive punch!

Be Jolly! It's the Season! 

Pin It!

These look so pretty but I think my dog would knock the tree over trying to eat them.

I love the peppermint garland! I put candy canes on my tree, but this is even better...

That's really cute - I've never seen that done before! I need to show this one to my daughter. Thanks for the cute idea.

Oh, so so happy I stopped by!!!! I have NO garlands/bead swag for my tree and I had no idea what to do.

I'll give you credit when I take a picture.
