These would be great for a kid’s puppet show (obviously) or to stick in floral foam as part of a centerpiece. If you have indoor herbs and spices growing, these would also be adorable to plop in the pot for Christmas decor!

You could also tie a candy around the stem, then cover with the ribbon, and use these as a cute little take home Christmas brunch or dinner favor. Add a name to that candy and it becomes a name card for your holiday dinner table!
