Peppermint Candy!


Here is a fast little gift giving idea! You can make up a lot of them all at once and have them ready for guests or give to your neighbors. I bought everything at the Dollar Store (except for the ribbon & tags which I made). Yes, even the doilies! 2 for $1.00! The stemware has pretty curves and a diamond~like look. I weaved the ribbon through the doilies and pulled the ribbon tight so the candies won't fall out. Added a silver bell and a tag to finish them up.
Another easy~breezy craft!



Enjoy getting ready for the holidays!

How adorable! And, what a festive and sweet idea. Also, I made the detergent you posted about. LOVE it! I already have a teacup whose saucer was long gone as my scoop. When I find a cute container to put it in, I will photograph, post and link back to you. Thanks for sharing! Heidi
