Peppermint Trees

I was at the dollar store last week and saw these styrofoam cones- and bags of peppermints- so I thought I would try to make peppermint trees. 

 You need one 7 oz. pkg. of mints to do each tree.  Just unwrap each mint and starting at the bottom- glue each mint on with a hot glue gun... when you get to the top stack two on top. 

I glued 1 tree onto a glass candlestick and the other one onto a glass gobblet for the bases, tied ribbon around them & added a little bit of glitter to make them sparkle!!  They were very easy and quick to make-- and look perfect with the rest of my candy jars.
