I made this peppermint and gingerbread themed garland last year. I hung it in the dining area of our kitchen near where we eat.
I found round stryofoam discs at the dollar store. I knew I had to seal them before I painted them, because they were very porous. I covered them with a few coats of Modge Podge.
To start the peppermint swirls, I started by marking out my starting points.
I then painted the swirl lines a little at a time until they were the thickness that I wanted.
On six of the discs, I painted the swirl to looks like suckers. I inserted a lollipop stick into the stryofoam.
The gingerbread were made by each of my kids when they were in 1st grade. I will share another post about the Gingerbread Tea they had at their elementary school. It was a lot of fun and had so many great ideas that should be shared. I saved their gingerbread, and I am so happy that I have the perfect place to display them.
I wrapped all the candy with plastic wrap and tied on red ribbon. To hand them I inserted an ornament hook into the stryofoam.
I just hung my garland today for this Christmas seaon. I still love it as much as last year.
