Christmas Craft Round-up

I did try a few Pinterest crafts with the kids this year for Christmas.  Cute enough, but not the best I’ve ever done.  The children had fun, though, so worthwhile.  Here’s how my versions stack up to the Pinterest versions:

First up is the Christmas Tree Cone.  Here is where the idea came from and what it was supposed to look like:

From Free-n-Fun Christmas

And here’s mine:

Perhaps not as pretty, but I let the kids do most of it. You could spruce up the bottom with “presents” from Starburst Candies, or Teddy Grahams..that’d be cute!

Next up:

This is the picture I found on Pinterest.  A large marshmallow with peppermint sticks jammed down in them, dipped in melted white chocolate and sprinkled with sugar.  These were easy enough, though I couldn’t find peppermint sticks.  Thanks, Lincolnton Walmart.

And the last project: Homemade BBQ Sauce YUMMM!

This one I got out of a magazine and gave it a go.  Absolutely my favorite sauce for BBQ..and I even had a couple of calls from people I’d given it to for the recipe.  So here it is for the world to see 🙂
