Peppermint Tree Topper

Here is a fun Peppermint Tree Topper for a candy themed tree. Very easy and adds a very festive look
You will need some plywood discs, monster chenille wire, wooden dowels, glitter, Elmer's glue, hot glue or E-6000, white paint, a pencil. All supplies were purchased at Hobby Lobby
Paint your discs white. When dry: free hand some candy stripes. I did 6 sections

Alternate stripes with Elmer's glue and glitter

Once dry, bend your chenille into "candy wrappers." I did a heart shape and bent 2 together. Glue the ends on. You could skip the chenille and wrap the whole disc in cellophane and gathered the ends, but I was afraid it would rip on the tree

Glue on the dowel

Stick the "candies" in the top of your tree. I did two small red ones and a large green one.

I stuck some lighted candy canes in from Walmart ($2.50 each) for added sweetness
