say that fast 3 times.
last year when i posted pictures of these paper plate peppermint candies, i had a lot of emails
wondering how i made them.
here's your list of goods to get:
plain white chinet paper plates...you need the heavy duty paper plates for them to last.
(i used the smaller dessert size, but you could make the larger dinner plate size if you want giant ones)
red craft paint or big red sharpie
red glitter glue...walmart
roll of cellophane... cut into 19x19 pieces.
if you have no patience (you know who you are), then use the sharpie, otherwise you have to let the paint dry.
then outline and embellish with the red glitter glue.
if only one side is going to show, then glue a plain paper plate to the back.
if both sides are going to show...yada yada. you know.
then take outside (unless you like to inhale toxic fumes) and coat with spray glitter.
told you it was easy.
i tied mine to my outside garland around the front door with string around the ribbon. the ribbon hides it.
they have been outside in the elements 3 season's now, and still look fine.
if your gonna use them outside, make sure they have some sort of cover though.
happy holiday crafting.
