Homemade Marshmallows

My sister and I made some marshmallows to give away for small christmas presents for friends. Here is a great recipe! I packaged the marshmallows in a clear bag from target and I stamped my name on these “from the kitchen of” stickers. The stickers are from Rifle Paper co. a few years ago.

Pair the marshmallows with some hot chocolate and it makes the perfect little gift for the holidays! December180 copy copy

Pompom Garland

Our front room where you take off your shoes and hang up your jacket has always looked a little bare to me. I decided to make a pompom garland to string over the mirror to add some colour. I went to Michael’s to get some yarn and pompom makers. You don’t need pompom makers, there are tons of tutorials online on how to make it with a fork, but for $5 dollars I thought I would save myself the headache and time and get the gadget that makes it ten times faster.

When I went to target and saw this gift bag I knew I needed to have it. But I thought it was too cute to give away, I wanted to keep it for years to come and put it up every christmas!

I looked for a frame to put it in for a while and couldn’t find anything so I thought I would put it on our chicken wire frame, as well as all the christmas cards we have gotten! Hopefully I will find a cute frame to put it in for next christmas but for now I am loving how it looks in its new home.

Mini Stocking!

Steven and I have two super cute burlap stockings that I ordered off an etsy site a few years ago. Since then the shop has stopped making the same stockings so I couldn’t order one for Hendrix. One of my friends was out shopping and saw a mini burlap stocking and thought I could do something with it to make it Hendrix’s. It was a little girly with the flower and tassel, and it hung the opposite way that our stockings hang.

I took of the flower and tassel and moved where the brown strap is to hang it going the right way. I had some left over pom pons from my trailer curtains and thought they would go nice on the stocking. December106 copy December107 copy

I used cardboard to cut out an “H” and then wrapped it with twin. It is now hanging beside the big stockings and looks adorable! December108 copy December110 copy December112 copy December117 copy December124 copy
