Candy Cane Christmas Tree Skirt

I looked for a Christmas tree skirt for years that would go with my gingerbread/candy themed Christmas tree. I was overjoyed when my sister pulled out her (almost) finished tree skirt and declared she did not want it anymore. It was perfect for me! I just sewed on the red trimming and it was finished.(Don't ask me how to do the rest because I don't know) We've enjoyed having such a cute skirt this year!

Another Pinterest project complete! My sister spotted this shadow box at the D.I. and knew it would be perfect for this project. 

So here's what I did:

Spray painted shadow box black
Picked out Christmas paper and glued it to the back wall of the shadow box
Found jingle bells that fit the shadow box (at the D.I. also) and put them into the shadow box
Cut vinyl saying out with the Cricut machine
Tied ribbon around the frame and added a bow on top.

It make me happy!

M&M Hershey Pretzel Snacks

I absolutely love Christmas time and all the food that goes with it. These super easy snacks caught my attention and scream "Christmas" to me. I saw the idea on pinterest and had to make them. They were aesthetically pleasing as well and tasty. Big thumbs up for me!

M&M Hershey Pretzel Snacks
Preheat oven to 275°F.Line pretzels on baking sheet and place a single Hershey Kiss on top of each pretzel. Bake in oven for 3 minutes. Remove and immediately press in a single M&M into the center of each Kiss. Let cool and harden before serving.

Give Thanks!

Even though I am late posting this, I was able to enjoy my Give Thanks blocks through the Thanksgiving holiday. The process was identical to my BEWARE blocks, just different paper and I painted the blocks brown instead. I am very happy with the end result!
