Nothing makes me think of the holidays more than the minty-fresh taste and smell of peppermints. Even though you see those classic red-and-white candies year round, there’s something that makes them feel so wintry. I’m especially fascinated by their DIY inspiration; who knew you could turn a bag of candies into a holiday serving tray? Check out some of our favorite ways to incorporate peppermints into your holiday decor and recipes this season.
Peppermint Serving Tray: This holiday serving tray is a cinch to make and will only cost you a few bucks. Simply lay peppermints side-by-side on a cookie sheet and place in the oven until the mints have evenly melted. Remove and let the sheet cool completely.
Peppermint Candy Wreath: Allow red-and-white peppermint candies to steal the show in the form of a holiday wreath. Cover a white foam wreath in peppermints using a glue gun, starting onto the inner circle at an angle. When all the peppermints are glued, add a ring of Red Hots to fill in any white space. Add a ribbon at the top and hang. Get the Full Step-by-Step Instructions >>
