We have a 1-year-old granddaughter, so this year we are doing some very bright candy-themed decorating for Christmas. I started with these pretty peppermint candy decorations in the garden entry of our home. Learn how to create these festive Christmas garden decorations below.
Smoothfoam 6″ discs
Craft paints – red, silver
Stencil paper, craft knife
Xyron adhesive machine
Dowel rods, paint brush
I made the spiral pattern template using my electronic die-cut machine. You could also trace clip art or draw it freehand. I ran the negative pieces through my Xyron machine and adhered them in place. This gave me a crisper edge when painting. Be sure to pull up the paper while the paint is still wet!
After the paint is dry, insert a dowel rod into the edge of the disc, then wrap it in cellophane and tie ribbons at the base to secure.
