Pretty, simple wreaths made entirely from peppermints! Just put them in the oven, and let them make some holiday magic.

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Peppermint Wreath Ornaments
My two are crazy about peppermints, so this simple craft is something they love very much! We turned on our oven to 325 degrees.

Maddie unwrapped some candies.

We put some foil over our cookie sheet, and she placed her candies in a circle--making sure they touched each other.

Here's a flower that Maddie made.

We put our candies in for 6.5 minutes at 325 degrees. They had spread enough at this point, but they continue to melt a bit from the heat of the pan after you take them out, so 6 1/2 was an ideal time for us. (Better to take them out a bit early when they still have shape and substance, rather than too late when they're flat and runny.)

Peppermint Wreath Ornaments

We left the wreaths to cool for a minute, but since the flower didn't have a hole, we pushed an ornament hook underneath it while the candy was hot and soft. (Make sure not to touch it with bare fingers!) Note: If your wreath breaks, try putting it back in the oven for a couple of minutes; usually the candy will melt back together.

Once the ornaments had cooled, we lifted them easily off the foil. We tied on ribbons, and hung them up. Sweet!
