Christmas Mint Topiary

To make a Christmas Topiary:

  • 2 bag of peppermints
  • styrofoam ball (from Michaels)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Thick wood stick (Michaels)
  • Metal tin or container
  • green foam brick used for flower arranging (from Michael’s)
  • sealant spray

The most time consuming part of this craft is unwrapping each mint. Once you have completed this step, begin hot gluing each mint onto the Styrofoam ball. You could spray paint the foam ball red first to peep through, but I like white. Keep a one inch portion without a mint so that you have room to attach it to the stick. I used a Sealant Spray to keep it from being sticky. This step also helped enforce the “No licking the topiary” rule. Then simply put one end of the wooden stick into the topiary. I would use a thicker one than the one pictured because the topiary was very heavy. Trim the green brick to fit into your container. Secure the other side of the wood stick into green brick. Hot glue around sides. Decorate it with a bow and green shredded paper. Now you have a cute centerpiece.
