Starlight Starbright…



I admire those who craft.

It isn't one of my gifts...although--





When I was young mother I attempted to be one of those skilled artisan moms.

How to Make Christmas Mice Ornaments or Present Toppers

On one occasion I made gray corduroy "mice” with black beady eyes and  a candy cane tail for everyone in Gray's classroom.











I created (tongue in cheek) this lovely Cranberry Topiary on a snowy day in Montana-- inspired by Clinton's Craft Corner.

I record ABC's The Chew to watch while the belt on the treadmill goes round and round.

Clinton's Peppermint Candy Serving Tray looked like a perfect craft for me--

I have what it takes.

-A cookie sheet
-Parchment paper
-An oven

Heat your oven to 350 degrees F.








I drew a circle the size of a cake stand on parchment paper.

Arrange the mints on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet. The mints should be roughly ¼ inch apart, leaving some extra room on the sides for melting.

Bake it for approximately 5-7 minutes.

Slip the baking sheet into the oven. It took exactly 7 minutes.








Proud Peppermint crafting moment!

I sent MP back to the store for more mints.














Let's Craft!

      Probably! They are melted peppermints–good question for the dentist 🙂

    I love it!! I also love the mice you made for Gray’s class. I imagine there are a lot of those very same mice on some Christmas Trees today.
