Deck the Halls with a DIY Peppermint Garland You Can Make in 30 Minutes
No one will guess it's made from paper plates and cellophane—and it only takes 30 minutes to make!
Crafts-master, Making It host, and Damask Love blogger Amber Kemp-Gerstel dreams up larger-than-life decorations made from everyday materials. As a self-proclaimed "crafter, blogger, and glue-gun slinger," her take on holiday decorating is simple but eyepopping: Amp up traditional motifs with whimsy and a glue gun. Use ordinary materials—a paper plate, cardstock, and cellophane wrap—to build a garland of oversize peppermint candies. String the garland on a pretty holiday mantel or stair railing. As an alternative, use different sizes of plates and stagger the paper candies down the middle of a dining table for the ultimate Christmas dinner display.
No matter how you display them, this easy Christmas paper crafting idea is sweet as can be.
