Today I'll be spotlighting something I made. This is what happens when a budget minded (cheap) Christmas-lover gets bored:
You will need a red permanent marker, 1 used CD, scissors, ribbon (not red, trust me on this), and your adhesive of choice.
I did this all freehand and used google for help with the pattern. You just draw the outline on the CD first using your permanent marker. Fill in the bigger peppermint chunks then add any details (like the lines between the chunks). I tied up a bow with some of that decorative tinsel garland from the dollar store then hot glued it on. Once that dried I cut off a bit of my white papery ribbon and glued that to the back. And there you have it, your very own Recycled Peppermint Ornament.
Variation: Instead of making a ribbon to glue on the top, get some clear cellophane & wrap the finished CD, tying off both ends for a more authentic candy look.
