cranberry topiaries

Yes, you will need a foam ball from the craft store to assemble these red jewel-like beauties, but it’s well worth the trip. To create these glam topiaries, simply use toothpicks to secure cranberries to the foam shape of your choice – we like spheres and cones best.

citrus wreath

Everything need to create this edible wreath may be found at the local market, including the greenery – use fresh bay leaves to fill in any gaps and soften the overall look.

peppermint tree ornaments

Kids will love helping with these clever candy tree ornaments. Spray cookie cutters with nonstick spray, fill with peppermint candies, and bake at 350-degrees until just melted (3-9 minutes). Before the melted candy hardens, use a toothpick to create a hole for string, and remove from the molds as soon as they are cool enough to handle.

frosted pinecones

Simple craft glue and epsom salt creates this frosty effect resembling chunky ice crystals. If you can’t find pinecones outdoors, many grocery stores stock bags of cinnamon scented cones around the holidays – even better!

peppermint wreath

This wreath is so fantastic, we’re tempted to paint our front doors red! Use hot glue to secure rows of peppermint candies to a base. Foam rings available at local craft stores work best, but any appropriately-sized ring will do the trick.

gingerbread cookie trees

Create your own winter wonderland-inspired tablescape with star shaped ginger cookies and powdered sugar. If your stacks of cookies are less than stable, dab a small amount of glue (or icing) between each cookie for added hold.
