Faux Peppermint Sticks

I wanted to share these with you, I know it's a bit early for Christmas but as soon as the weather gets nippy I start thinking of hot chocolate with a peppermint stripe sticks.

The other day I cut a few dowel rods down to 4 inch pieces and painted them white. Once dry I wrapped them with 1/4 inch double sided tape. Red-line tape is my favorite for projects like this. It took a bit of practice to figure out the most realistic looking angle for the stripes. Once they were taped up I pulled up the backing and sprinkled on glitter, that's it. A super cute, super easy holiday decoration that I can't eat.

Have a great weekend!
