So apparently cooking a Thanksgiving meal, over decorating a house that's not even mine, and spending quality time with my family wasn't enough....no no no.
I of course had to shove a couple more things on my plate at Thanksgiving.
I had this grand idea in my head of making some cool Thanksgiving crafty things with my nieces....and once I get an idea in my head it's almost impossible for me to let it go....especially when it comes to Holidays
My idea of "letting go" this year was letting my sister bring whipped cream in a can. And even that was sort of painful
Yep....I'm bat shit crazy
But a few years ago I wouldn't have bee able to even let that go....it's progress......baby steps.....baby steps I tell ya!!
Anyways....me...crazy.....too much crap.....
So there I am with this pile of stuff trying to make these adorable waffle cone cornucopias I saw on the Almighty Pinterest
Well mine weren't
I googled it and found a bunch of different techniques and tried them all
And mine still came out sad
So we scratched that and ended up just eating all the Reese's pieces, pumpkin seeds, and sesame sticks I bought to put inside them
The craft that did turn out well was the pilgrim hat headbands
In between setting off smoke alarms (it's a thanksgiving day tradition in our family) and drinking too many Vodka Cranberries I managed cut out squares of golden yellow felt (use whatever color you want for your buckle)
Fold it in half and cut little slits on each side
Then cut from slit to slit and unfold to give you and buckle shape
Hot glue onto little top hats. I got these on the Xmas aisle at Michael's
Then I just hot glued the whole hat onto some glittery headbands from the Dollar Store
Cute hats, cute kids
You know why they're so stinkin awesome right?
Damn straight they do!
