To make this festive ornament you only need a few easy supplies:

-a clear plastic ornament from your local craft store
-some pretty holiday ribbon
-Celebration by SweetWorks red, white and green Pearl candies (www.sweetworks.net)
-hot glue gun

Simply fill your ornament with SweetWorks Pearls for a quick and cute handmade ornament. Once we filled our ornament with the candies, we made sure to hot glue the top back on and secured a holiday ribbon to add just the right touch! You could personalize your ornament even more by writing a special message or letting the kids add their handprints! Once dry, hang it on your tree and enjoy for years to come!

Pizzelles are a staple Christmas cookie in our Italian household and what better way to dress them up than by adding some SweetWorks red and green Sixlets in the shape of holly berries and leaves! The kids will love leaving these special treats out for Santa and instead of milk, we paired these classic treats with shimmering white Sixlets in a snowflake adorned carafe and a decadent chocolate Nutcracker! Enjoy!

2 cups butter
12 eggs
3 cups white sugar
8 teaspoons baking powder
7 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons anise extract (if you aren’t a fan of licorice flavor, simply substitute almond or vanilla!)

Mix ingredients in order given. Should be the consistency of a drop cookie.
Heat Pizzelle Iron. Drop about 1 heaping teaspoon on hot iron, wait approx. 40 seconds and enjoy!
