These mint plates are a perfect way to add 
some pizzazz to your Christmas party.

My friend, Kimmy, made these this morning.  
When she shared the pictures I asked if she would allow me to feature her here on the ol' blog.  Let me tell you a wee bit about Miss Kimmy.
She is the mother of three amazing triplets.
Kimmy is a WONDERFUL mother who makes the most of every moment with her kids.
She does fun things like setting leprechaun traps with her kids on St. Patrick's Day.
One day, if I have some kiddos of my own, Kimmy will be my mommy mentor. 

Her mint plate project has two of my favorite craft 
project and easy!!
These are the steps she used to make her plates.

Preheat oven to 250*.
Place mints (the cheap starlight mints) in a circle pattern on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Kimmy's great tip, use the spring from a spring form pan to help form your circles.
Fill in the gaps with half mints or mint pieces.
Place the cookie sheets in the oven for 15 minutes, checking every 5 minutes.
Once they have melted together, remove from the oven and cool on the cookie sheet.
Feel free to manipulate the shape while the mints are still warm.
Kimmy placed hers on dollar store candle stick and 
on a martini glass for more height.  
She melted a few candies by themselves to use as 
"glue" to stick them to the glass.
Aren't these great?!  
Knowing Kimmy, she probably did this for a normal day, but they would be a great addition to your party tablescape.  

On a much more somber note, please hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight and tell those you love that you love them.  
I know I'm going straight to my sister's house to hug Grant.  
Tragedies like the one in Connecticut are a reminder of just how precious our lives and loved ones are.  
My thoughts and prayers are with the parents, families, and survivors.

This tutorial is being shared on some of these blogs.

  1. These are amazing. Umm, please ask her how, and where, she stores them. Or does she just make news ones each year??

  2. These are amazing. I love the. I need to try this. I wonder if you were to spray them with a coating if they would stay good for next year? I saw that Michael Z just asked the same thing. I was wondering about storing.

    I have a link party called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop and would love to have you share this with everyone. It runs from Wednesday through midnight Sunday. Here is the link to the party.

  3. these are SO GREAT! what a fun and relatively simple idea. found you from creations by kara :)

  4. Oh my gosh, those are so fun. How cute to serve cookies on! Stopping by from the Blog Hop.

  5. These are so fun! I love this idea and the springform pan would be a good way to make sure they stayed in a circle!

  6. There is something called Preserve it by Krylon that someone (a person at Michaels. Saw it online and asked at my own store) told me about that is supposed to be good for this. They said you just need to let the candy sit out to get dry to the touch and then spray it on, flip it over and spray the other side. Personally I'm going to try regular spray varnish if the Krylon stuff is too expensive.

  7. They are so adorable, and a very inexpensive craft, too! I would love for you to share them at SHOW-licious Craft Showcase!

    Happy Holidays,
