- Trace assorted sizes of glassware or small plates onto rigid paper and cut out.
- Draw concentric circles or swirling pattern onto paper circles with pencil. Fill in pattern with red craft paint to create peppermint look.
- Once craft paint has thoroughly dried, cover painted surface with spray adhesive. Sprinkle a dusting of clear crystal glitter onto wet glue and set aside for a few minutes to allow glue to dry.
- Cut wooden dowels or skewers to various lengths with kitchen shears and attach to the back of each circle with tape or a dab of hot glue. Finally, add finished candies to a vase to create a centerpiece and embellish with a peppermint-striped ribbon.
