I was a little nervous to start gluing on the mints, but it is SUPER easy! They want to stick to the hot glue, and I just held each one on for a few seconds. It took me about 2 hours total - sounds like the perfect amount of time to watch your favorite holiday movie. Here is my wreath after I glued on all the mints (I had a handful left out of the three bags):
I love it! It's a happy wreath. I really hope Beeps likes it. I still need to spray it with the acrylic sealant and have my mom (she makes the BEST bows) help me with a red bow. The mints go all around the outside and inside edges and all along the front, but not the back. If I were doing it again, I would probably take a few minutes and really think about how to lay out the mints on the front, but this haphazard non-plan turned out ok too. This would be a great crafty-gift to put together in the 10 days we still have before Christmas!
