See, last month, I made these:
and 'twas then that I mentioned my love for the whimsical peppermint theme that will pervade my house this holiday season.
The 'rents had it when I was little. There's just something, so. . .visions of sugarplums dancing, no?
Anywho, my favorite decor in the house growing up was a long string of peppermints, hanging from the windows. Now, the adorable ones you can find at the Hob Lob are $10.Each. On sale. I can't spend 100 bones or more on this idea, now can I?
Oh, hail no.
So I turned to my machine.
Used this peppermint design agay-an. (Saw the president, agay-an)
Along with these wood circles from the Hob Lob that you can buy for pocket change when on sale:
and a coat of white paint,
and we are good to go here. I've got 8, 1 foot peppermints, all in a row.
Used the pieces I pulled out of the peppermint design for the backsides:
you know, just in case they flip around and show their behinds. Dirty mints.
And now I've got over 12 feet of peppermints strung.
Where am I gonna put it? Heck if I know.
But I do know it will go great with this new pedestal I bought me yesterday:
It's feeling so fresh around here.
