DIY Peppermint Candy Christmas Ornaments

Shae Pendleton

Like it or not, it’s that time of year. You know, time when we start making lists and figuring out how to make our dollars stretch as far as possible. It gets overwhelming. In the interest of saving your sanity, we are keeping things simple this holiday season on Bonbon Break. Need easy teacher gifts? Want to impress your friends with handmade goodies? We’ve got you covered. Over the next few weeks, we will be featuring some awesomely simple DIY projects.

We are starting with these great Peppermint Candy Christmas Ornaments from Shae at Hello Homebody. I adore a project that I can make with things I already have on hand and this truly is one of those.

Peppermint candies are so festive and classic. No matter what time of the year it is, the sight and smell of peppermints always reminds me of the holidays! DIY Peppermint Candy Ornaments are thrifty and quick to make, they’re a handmade project that is perfect for this time of the year, when we’re all running a little lower on money and time! Include your kids in creating this fun craft project, spend an afternoon making homemade ornaments for decorating your Christmas tree this year!

These melted candies aren’t just for the tree either! Try melting peppermints in small cookie cutters and then use the peppermint shapes as cute little edible toppers for cupcakes or brownies (what is more festive than the flavors of chocolate with peppermint?!).

My name is Shae Pendleton, I'm a Midwesterner who moved to Texas almost ten years ago. I met my husband here and we've been married now for over two years. This time of the year we love to be outside, kayaking, hiking, and camping! I personally love cooking and DIY projects so, in the Spring of 2013, I decided to start my blog, Hello Homebody, to share my favorite recipes and tutorials. Sewing is another favorite of mine, so I also launched the Hello Homebody shop on Etsy to sell my handmade home decor.
