Simple Snowman Snack

Christmas is a great time for fun snacks! Here is a quick and simply snowman snack that even the kiddos can help make:)
You can put the marshmallows either way shown above, but I found that the marsmallows tend to spin out of place if you put them on like the one in the middle.
Dip all three marshmallows in melted candy coating and let the excess drip off before you start to decorate.
Put the Twizzlers in the freezer rolled up in the shapes needed to make the smile and the top of the earmuffs. This helps them stay curved while the candy coating dries.

Empty Frame Wall

My third craft using all those old, dusty frames isn't exactly a craft, but I did manage to find another use for them! They are now decorating the ones very plain wall in our half bath. I love the look of a big wall of empty frames, but I really had to sell it to my hubby before he would help be hang them up:)
 Not too bad for free! All I did was pop the back and the glass out of the frames, Jason pulled off the metal tabs in the back, and they are simply hanging on a small nail.
And because we actually redid the entire bathroom, I figured I would share pictures of the finished project. Let me just preface these pics with: It is REALLY difficult to take good pictures in a tiny bathroom that has no natural light!!
 Jason put up some great textured paintable wallpaper that I found at Lowe's. One roll cost $18 and I think he only used half a roll to cover the one wall in our bathroom. We used paint from our living room....mainly because that color is hard to coordinate with and the half bath is right by the living room. It was also a nice perk that I didn't have to spend money to buy paint!
 I picked up a big frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off, and spray painted the garbage can and basket with black spray paint.
 Jason hung up this new mirror that I ordered from CSNstores.com. I love it! It was such a great price, and the mirror is really great quality! I painted a few extra pieces of the wallpaper and framed them, and we added a new towel rack.
Our half bath went from boring beige walls, to chic and colorful with a few days work and not a whole lot of money.
