The only difference was it was filled with homemade caramels at the time, yum! (I am glad they ate them!)
I have an extra strand of white christmas lights at home, and I was lamenting on how I wish I had brought them to put inside the glass block, they would have looked so pretty!
Then I remembered seeing a bag of starlight mints or peppermints on the counter and asked my mother-in-law if she was planning on eating them.
With the answer of, no, they were old, we started unwrapping.
And put them in the glass block.
Well it didn't quite fill the block, but it did look cute, and better than being empty.
I started unwrapping more ornaments to hang on the tree when the tissue paper in my hand gave me an idea.
This was the result! Much better!
I still think the lights would look great, maybe with the mints as well, but until then...
It is kinda fun to get creative and use what you have!
