I’m not sure where I got the idea for this Starlight Mint Christmas wreath…it may have been inspired by this post for a DIY peppermint platter, but the fact is, this was such a fun and simple craft project.
I’m using it as a wreath, but it’s also perfect as a centerpiece…just add a mason jar with flowers or branches (click over to see the rest of this gingerbread house party post!)
- Starlight Mints
- Silicone Muffin Pan
- Mod Podge Hard Coat
- Embroidery Hoop
- Hot Glue
Step 1: Spray your muffin pan with cooking spray. I gave it a really thorough coat; I definitely didn’t want these sticking! Add two mints per cup. I tried different variations (2 of the same color, 2 different colors, stacked, side-by-side) to see what I liked best. For me, I think I liked two of the same color side-by-side, but it’s really up to you.
Step 2: Place in a 350 oven for somewhere between 3-8 minutes. Just keep a good eye on them and pull once they’ve melted. Let cool.
Step 3: Take your embroidery hoop, and begin hot gluing your mints around your hoop. I glued mints all the way around, and then began stacking/overlapping the mints for a second layer. The star pattern I ended up with with unintentional, but I like how it turned out in the end.
Step 3: Next, you’ll want to seal your wreath so it lasts a bit longer and doesn’t get sticky. I used Mod Podge Hard Coat, applying three thin coats and letting them dry in between.
I really love how unusual and fun this wreath is.
