It’s that time of year again! Yay for more celebrations. We wanted to bring some color to the table and find a fun way to display some treats for all our friends who will be coming over to join the fiesta! Follow along to see how we made these fun sombreros!

What you will need:

  1. 3 clay pot with clay tray
  2. pom poms
  3. craft paint
  4. hot glue
  5. paint pen
  6. M&M’s

Paint your pots red, green and yellow. Place the pots upside down on the trays to mimic a sombrero.

Allow them to dry. Once the paint is totally done drying, hot glue the pom poms around the brim of the tray.

Next, take a paint pen and draw zig zags around the bottom of the pot.

Now time for the best part– the candy! Add in the m&m’s around the brim of the sombrero.

Place on party table so guests can enjoy!

Who loves decorating the tree at Christmas time? We do! We have so much fun picking out our favorite ornaments to hang up. From little to small we love them all. But what’s even more exciting are homemade ones! Today, we are going to show you have to make salt dough custom ornaments for your tree, These also make as great gifts!

Supplies:

  1. 1 cup of flour
  2. 1/2 cup of salt
  3. 1/2 cup of water

Begin by pouring all the dry ingredients first, then topping it off with the water.

Your dough should become thick and kind of sticky. This is how you know it is ready!

Roll out the dough and pick your favorite cookie cutter shapes.

Gently press in the cookie cutter and remove from the rest of the dough.

Once you have cut them all out, oil a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 2 hours on 250 degrees.

Once they are done baking, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.

Design them however you want! We then glued the handle onto the back.
