Giant Peppermint Candy Garland Decorations Tutorial
These large-scale peppermint candy decorations and the perfect size for wreaths and garlands.
Materials for Large-Scale Peppermint Candy Decorations:
- 8" paper plates
- cellophane wrap
- red craft paint
I originally wanted to just buy some paper plates that look like peppermints. Surely they'd be easy to find, I thought. I thought incorrectly, evidently. (I have since searched and found these at Pier 1). So I bought some small (dessert size) paper plates, turned them over, and painted on some swirls with red craft paint.
After the paint had dried, it was a simple matter to wrap the plates in cellophane, and secure the twisted ends with a bit of tape. You could also use string or a bow, but real candies aren't tied with a bow, so I stuck with clear tape.
They were easy to tie on to my garland and wreath decorating my front door, and I love the addition to my collection of holiday decor.
