12 Sheepish Days – Day 8 Peppermint Candy Gift Box

Happy Monday! I am over halfway through my 12 Sheepish Days craft series. I hope you have been enjoying the projects. Don’t forget to send me your photos if you give any of them a try! This week the projects are a little less time consuming and more manageable with Christmas right around the corner. There is only so much crafting we can do in a month, right? This peppermint candy gift box is a simple way to dress up a round box of any size. 


– White wrapping paper (non-glossy)
– Red yarn
– Glue
– A small round box or a round box of any size
– Scissors


First, fill your box with candy or a small gift. Next, wrap the box in the wrapping paper, being careful to leave the round sides smooth and flat. Pull the two ends together tight and tie a yarn bow around each one. Trim any excess paper to make the ends even. Next, lightly draw peppermint stripes on the circle, evenly spaced. Cut pieces of yarn that match the lines drawn on the paper. Apply a small line of glue over each pencil line and press a yarn piece on top. Allow to dry completely.

This little peppermint box would make a great stocking stuffer! It is also a fun way to wrap something that has an unusual shape. I have a round box that I like to reuse almost every year for gifts to make the recipient wonder what’s inside. This would also be a sweet gift to put on each place setting at Christmas dinner.

How are your projects coming along? Please share what you are working on in the comments!

Have a great day! :)

  6. That is such a sweet (ha, ha, I made a pun!) way to wrap a gift. I am going crazy crafting; making an apron for my hunny, restoring a rocking horse for my baby, embroidering “George Lassos the Moon”, and making several state outlines like the one here http://pinterest.com/offsite/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.etsy.com%2Flisting%2F84683898%2Ftexas-love-nail-and-string-tribute-to&shatoken=69d578167f61a7facad36f46bb03950f594fdcf3&pin=54113632994344170

    Phew! If only December were longer! :)

  7. Such a good idea! Perfect for wrapping homemade sweets and treats in :)

  8. That’s so cute!! It’s the perfect easy gift to give to people you don’t know well enough to get an actual gift. Thanks so much for the idea! Can’t wait to see what you have next for us :)

    put up was great. I don’t realize who you might be but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already.

  25. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Many thanks!

    just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless imagine
    if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!
