We are iced in today & probably for the rest of the weekend. I’m experiencing the coldest weather of the my life. Luckily, I stocked up on taquitos & Dr. Pepper yesterday. The power was out for a few miserable hours this morning but has stayed on since. How is it where you are? Hope you’re bundling up by the fire with some hot chocolate.
So you know how Sonic gives out peppermints with your order? I’ve been saving those little guys for years. Literally.
Why you ask? Well my Nana had this peppermint wreath when I was a little girl & I’ve secretly been planning to recreate my own.
Sadly, I still have no where near enough mints. Despite my almost-daily Sonic visits. Maybe next year…
In the meantime, I wanted to use up at least a few of my mints for a Christmas craft. If I can’t make a wreath, the next best thing is a J, an O, & a Y right?
It came together in the cutest peppermint marquis!
Of course, you could spell out anything you like. NOEL or WISH would be cute too!
I hot-glued unwrapped peppermints to cake boards in the shape of the letters & done!
So easy. Seriously.

19 days & counting!
Stay safe & warm y’all!
