To make my peppermint chains, I used:
- curling ribbon
- butter knife (for curling the ribbons)
I cut my ribbon into pieces that were about 7-8 inches long. You can cut your pieces before or cut them while assembling the chains (which is what I did). To tie the peppermints together, I lined up the knots in the wrapping of two pieces of peppermint. Then, I tied a piece of ribbon around the knots. It is important to keep these knots lined up so that the peppermints are tied well together.

I double knotted the ribbon. I attached the desired amount of peppermints this way. Lastly, I curled each ribbon.
Adorable and easy peppermint chains! My daughter and I have been adding them to some gifts to add a little flair. You can use them to add a little holiday wonderment throughout the house!
