Elf Brings Peppermint Flowers

Hi everyone. I thought I would give you a quick, easy, and mostly free Elf on the Shelf idea. You probably have everything you need, right now - just lying around the house.  

  • Premade 3 inch Gift Bows, any color (the small kind that come in bags)
  • Candy Canes
  • Starlight Mints
  • Clear Tape  

Tape 1 candy cane to the back of each bow that you plan to make into peppermint flowers. 

Fold another small piece of tape inside out, into a roll, and use it to tape a mint to the center of each bow.

Viola! Easy Peppermint Flowers for your Elf on the Shelf to bring to your little girl or boy. Make as many as you like. Have your elf bring a whole bouquet if you want. They're so simple to make and the kids love them!

Merry Christmas!  


  1. Hi Samantha, I found your link at the Pinworthy Projects link up. This is so cute and it doesn't involve making a mess either (so many EOTS ideas do). My girls would love this, I'll be trying this soon. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

    1. Thank you Meg. I know your girls will enjoy them!
