Peppermint Lollipops

My friend gave me the cutest ornament this year, tiny lollipops in a jar.  I LOVE tiny stuff when it looks like food! Doesn't tiny stuff just make you want to squeal?! No, just me? Ok, Anyway ;)... I thought it would be so fun to have a bigger size version to display this year!

I started out with glitter paint, Styrofoam disks ( they come in a 6 pack) and kabob skewers.  
After squeezing and squeezing the glitter paint onto it, it looked like this, my hand throbbing when it was done but it looked cute! ;)  


Once it dried, which did take a LONG time, I wrapped them with plain ol' cling wrap and tied them with a ribbon.  Dollar General has cute ribbon for $1.
I got this large jar from Hobby Lobby to put them in.



I think the total for the Lollipops was around $5 for 6.  These would look adorable as ornaments as well!  I love that snow man too! He is from Pier 1, have you seen their commercials "what speaks to you?", this little guy spoke to me and I just had to get it! :)
Hope you are all having a great time getting ready for Christmas!
