DIY paper straw snowflakes

Paper straws aren’t just for parties! You can use them for crafting, too, to make things like these sweet little paper straw snowflakes. Isn’t this an adorable idea?!

Peppermint Rice Krispies treats on a stick

2 COMMENTS

It’s no secret – food on a stick is always a huge hit! So I love these grab ‘n go peppermint Rice Krispies treats on a stick by Shugary Sweets. They’re made with candy cane flavored Jello pudding mix and mini peppermint marshmallows, then dipped into vanilla almond bark. Mmmmmm. They’d be wonderful party food or, when wrapped in individual bags and tied with ribbon, a thoughtful homemade holiday gift. ...
