How to Make Candy Buckeyes

So, if you don't live in the state of Ohio, have you ever eaten or made candy buckeyes....or is this just an Ohio thing????  I was born in Ohio and have lived here all my 39 years and we had buckeye trees in the backyard of my childhood home.  My Mom taught me how to make the candy ones when I was very young!  You'll find dozens of recipes online, but I wanted to share my recipe, which I have perfected over the years! ***MY RECIPE HERE!***

Easy Christmas Arrangement DIY, Under $5.00!

Hi everyone!  I have a Christmas craft project for you today!  We have various pine trees in our yard, so I figured that I should be taking advantage of them for the holiday season!  I'm not talking about cutting them down to use for our Christmas tree (we're not the Griswolds😛!!!), but they have beautiful branches, pinecones, and let's not forget the fresh smell of pine that is fabulous for crafts and decor!!!  Here is a very simple and inexpensive fresh arrangement that I made for under $5.00!

I'd love to see your arrangement! Tag me on Instagram @myfashionabledesigns.


Supplies Needed:
Wire Basket or box (plain or paint to your desired color!)
Branches from evergreen/pine/spruce trees, various types and sizes
Pinecones, berry stems, embellishments
Ribbon
Floral Wire
Wire and/or Branch Cutter


Step 1: Soak the wet foam in a sink or bowl of water.  Allow to absorb water naturally, usually about two minutes.

Step 2: Cut to fit your container. 

Step 3: Place in the bottom of your container. 

Step 4:  Trim branches as needed and stick into the foam. You can't go wrong!  Just start pushing them into the foam and add more and more until your desired fullness.


Step 5: Use floral wire to attach any embellishments. 

Step 6: To cover foam block, just shove in some greenery! 

Step 7: Attach a bow with floral wire or just tie it around a branch.  
Great gift idea!  Get creative by adding ornaments, glitter branches, candy canes, lights, etc.  


Here I added a few embellishments:


Don't forget to add water to your foam every day or two to keep it from drying out!

Halloween Craft: How to Make a Pumpkin Lantern



Hi everyone!  I hope you'll enjoy this easy Halloween craft!  See below for the printable template and all the instructions!!  

Supplies Needed:

Print out the TEMPLATE onto orange paper (or any paper of your choice!)
Scissors
Glue Stick
Clear Tape
Yellow Tissue Paper
Battery Operated Tea Light




1.  Cut the lantern template across the solid line. You can make two lanterns per template.


2.  Fold along the dotted lines:



3.  Cut out the gray eyes and nose:


4.  When you get to the mouth, fold and snip the three little dots.  This will give you just enough space to fit your scissors!  Then unfold and cut the remainder of the mouth:




At this point, you may want the printed side to be on the inside of the lantern, so you can glue the yellow tissue paper to the printed side.  I kept the printed side on the outside for the example.

5.  Cut out yellow tissue paper big enough to cover the cutouts:


6.  Glue the tissue paper to the orange paper:



7.  Refold and tape the edges together:


There you have it!  A paper lantern!
