Let the kids brighten up the Christmas tree by creating their own ornaments and tree-toppers using pipe cleaners, foil, and felt.
Peppermints are some of the coolest holiday sweets -- especially when transformed into edible hanging ornaments. Lay five or so peppermint candies in a circle to form a wreath; bond sides together with icing. Adorn front with cinnamon candies or mints. Let dry two hours before hanging. Loop twine around ornament; knot.
