Thursday Ornament


OK…I’m a little late on the deadline (story of my life)…but here’s an easy ornament/decoration that works well on a bannister. My friend Susan and I made these a lifetime ago (easily 10 years) and it is one thing that I can vouch for her actually making. She’s a notorious tease for giving a gift and saying “I made that”…which naive newcomers buy into immediately, while her old friends quickly declare her a liar of first order. She can’t keep a straight face in most cases.

This “candy” ornament is easy peasy. Take 2 heavy paper bowls and glue stick them together (or staple them). Either paint them or use heavy markers to color in the stripes of a peppermint candy (we used the marker method). Wrap them in clear cellophane and twist the ends just like wrapped candy. Make a dozen or more and wire them onto greenery as you decorate your bannister!
