now that december has rolled around, i’m going to start posting more seasonal recipes, crafts, + entertaining ideas since i know that many of you have lots of holiday parties + events ahead. as always, if you have anything specific that you want me to make/create + share, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org + let me know!
i follow a lot of entertaining blogs, + peppermint topiaries as a decorating idea pops up a lot around the holiday season. i’ve only seen them done with the red/white peppermints before, but once i completed that first topiary, i decided to make another smaller one with green spearmints. i think they both turned out great + have a bit of a mod, whimsical feel.
styrofoam cones (i used a 10” cone for the green topiary, a 16” for the red)
mints – the larger topiary took 3 standard bags of mints
hot glue gun + hot glue
unwrap what seems like thousands of mints, eating a few every now + then if needed. starting from the bottom up, hot glue individual mints in a row around the cone. continue upwards until the entire cone is covered. voilà - mint topiary!
