These are my new favorite thing to make. I just glued and rolled 6 styro foam balls with tacky glue and snow flakes and am letting them dry. Tomorrow I will make the cupcake ornaments. Everybody loves them. I made 2 for a friends children and now she wants one. I'm going to make some of them with zebra cupcake wrappers. Can't wait to see how they will look. This idea came from the Bake It Pretty Blog. She has a step by step tutorial. I will post my pictures tomorrow when I finish making them. These are so cool for Christmas gifts. Everyone says they look so real, they want to eat them....
Not a good picture but here is my attempt at cupcake ornaments: A friend wanted chocolate on her so I took black paint and drizzled.
almond bark, and dip nutter butter cookies. add edible eyes or make them with white and black icing.Use a red
m&m for the nose. Before the chocolate dries add broken pretzels. Idea from Munchkin Munchies
Bake cupcakes and frost. Use pretzel for antlers. You can also break them
Use a Vanilla Wafer for the face,
White white candy for the the eyes or make from icing.
Use red candies for the nose or Chocolate balls

My daughter is doing a tree like this for New Years. I thought it was such a great idea. I hope I have blogged this in time for those of you who would like to ring in 2012 in a unique way. My daughter's tree will have a party hat at the top where the Christmas star usually goes. We were at a store after Christmas looking at New Years hat and horns and etc and a lady and her three children are standing there also looking...she said this is how she and her kids celebrate. When the ball drops, they burst the balloons. My daughter said, oh my gosh, this is my new tradition. When I have kids, this is what we will do for New Years. She is doing her tree getting ready for her boyfriend to fly in from New Jersey. She is so excited about the tree. It's amazing what cool ideas complete strangers will share with you. My future grandchildren are sure to love this idea. Wish I had known about it when our kids were young. I was always in a hurry to get the tree down (the day after Christmas) and the kids never were. Good reason to leave it up.
I know, I know, Thanksgiving hasn't even come and gone yet, but I love the idea of these re-usable Christmas bags. If you like to sew, these are a breeze to make. I have a sewing machine buried deep in my storage room, and I think this will be well worth what it takes to dig it out. These can become a family tradition each year. There are so many beautiful Christmas materials for sale now, I can see myself going crazy with this idea. This will eliminate the mountain of gift wrapping paper after Santa comes. Here is thetutorialfor these simple Christmas gift bags.
