- Next do the same with your green and red M&M’s until the ornament is filled.
- Take your gift tag and write a sweet message with your permanent marker. I chose ” baby it’s cold outside.”
- Place your top back on the ornament and tie your bow around it.
- Secure your gift tag to the ornament.
- You can hang these on your tree until it is time to pass them out. Decorations you can EAT!
