DIY Peppermint Holiday Decor

7 Materials
15 Minutes
Transform peppermint candy into edible ornaments. All you need is peppermint and metal cookie cutters.
 After gathering all your supplies, cut a piece of parchment paper the size of your cookie pan and preheat oven to 350°F. Place the cookie cutters onto the parchment and spray the paper and the cookie cutters lightly with a cooking spray.
Spray your cookie cutters with cooking spray
Start your designs by placing as many candies side by side in the cookie cutter.
Cook them for 3-6 minutes.
Let them cool for another couple of minutes and then remove them from the cookie cutters. You can use a spoon to help push them out of the cookie cutter.
Pro Tip: They cook and cool quickly, don’t wait too long to remove them from the cookie cutters. If any candy melts under the cookie cutter you can easily break it off before removing them from the cookie cutter. If you need to get something off of them do not put water on them, it will make they very sticky.
Add ribbon or string and tie in a knot
You can add them to your Christmas tree or use them to decorate. We setup a beautiful Holiday table with red roses, candy canes, gold sparkling glasses, candy cane straws, and Santa dishes. We wrapped a special gift for each person with red and white ribbon and our peppermint craft with their names that doubled as a gift and a name card.
