Halloween Wreath

I made this wreath from this FUN tutorial from TATOR TOTS AND JELLO.
Mine is more simple and cost less, I am sure. I used my Joann's coupon comotion coupons for the ribbon and got the styrofoam wreath at a yard sale for a quarter.

I want to hang it on my front door, but I need to hammer a nail in there first.  Fun project. Only took me about an hour and a half start to finish.

Fall Decorations PART 1

Here is my first attempt to decorate on a budget.  I made a table runner out of material I already had and made matching pumpkins from a tutorial I found HERE.  I found the Fall garland at a yardsale for $1 a piece.  I am very happy with it and hope to decorate more!  There are so many ideas out there!!

Rice Crispy Pops

Hey!  I am sure there are other things like this out there... I made these up tonight. My kids and I had fun putting these together :)

To make:

Make 1 Recipe Rice Crispy Treats pressed in a baking sheet
White Chocolate Chips, melted
Popsicle Sticks
Candy Sprinkles

1. Cut out squares or circles out of the Rice Crispy Treats. Take 2 and put the White Chocolate (it acts as glue) in the center of both.
2. Place the popsicle stick in between and close.
3. Take a bit of white chocolate and run along the seams.
4 .Dip that in Candy sprinkles.
5. Wrap up with Wrenolds wrap and tie with a bow.
6. Put in Freezer or Refridgerator until ready to serve :)
Have Fun!

For Halloween, use Halloween Cookie Cutters and  orange and black sprinkles.
