Christmas Décor: Peppermint Paper Plates

It’s Craft Lightning – Holiday Edition! 
 
Back in September I shared a super easy, 15 minute project as part of the Craft Lightning Series hosted by Angie at The Country Chic Cottage and Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts. Well, we’re at it again, but this time there’s a theme and it’s all about the Holidays!

Peppermint Paper Plates @mvemother


Supplies
  • 2 plain white paper plates (a smaller size works best, in my opinion)
  • Red markers
  • Plastic wrap
  • Glue
Directions

Candy Cane Christmas Peppermints
 
Whether swirls or squares, make an outline on the back of both plates.
 
Red and White Christmas Decorations
 
Color in your design.
 
Peppermint Christmas Decor
 
Line up your pattern and glue the two plates together.
 
Paper Plate Christmas Decoration Idea
 
Lay out a piece of plastic wrap.
 
Wrap up your Paper Plate Peppermint Christmas Decoration
 
Wrap up your mint and twist the ends.
 
Add hot glue to Peppermint Paper Plates @mvemother
 
Add a little bit of hot glue to hold everything in place.

Don’t forget today at 4 p.m. CST I’m going to be hosting a Google+ Hangout on Air where I’ll be sharing 3 Quick and Easy Christmas Ornaments along with Cyn from Creative Cynchronicity!

How awesome are those? They are such a great idea for a kid craft too. Adding to my list of possible Kindergarten party crafts!

So we did this in elementary school...here's a fun tip. Add cotton balls in the middle with a few drops of peppermint oil. Smells just like a real peppermint!
