Handmade Peppermint Sticks

These were so simple to make.  Sew up a long skinny rectangle, leave one end open to stuff it.  Then I painted on the lines with craft paint and when that was dry, I stained them with a coffee mixture and added peppermint extract to it.

Here are my dried orange slices gone bad!  Do not get caught up in watching Toy Story 3 while your drying them in the oven.  I've added oranges to my shopping list for this week.

And last but not least, here is an after picture of two of the gourds from an earlier post.  I washed and scrubbed them, then stained them a little darker.


  1. Great job on those peppermint sticks! Love the gourds too ! Hugs,Jen

  2. the old fashion peppermint sticks...reminds me of the good old days!!
