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