Oreo Spider Cookies

Jace was here this weekend and he and I got bored with the football game on Sunday,


We conjured up some spider cookies!

We made sure to use the Mega Stuff Oreo's so the pretzel legs could slide in.

After the chocolate covered pretzel sticks had hardened, Jace broke them all in half and stuck them in the Oreo's.

Then he added some beady little eyes with the white and black icing.

During the 4th quarter of the Chiefs football game,
our spiders were born!

Bay Window Pumpkin Hoop Art

I know that title is confusing and I'll explain, but first I need a disclaimer about the photo's.

It's impossible to take a good photo of a burlap hoop hanging in a bay window with sun coming in!

So I had to wait until it started getting dark outside and then the color is all jacked up.

Anyway, I think you can still get the idea.

I wanted to use the rest of the burlap that I had left from other projects, so I put the pumpkins in 3 different size hoops. I ended up having to add orange flannel to the back because the pumpkin was getting lost when the sun came through the window in the afternoon's. It worked.

Then I hung them using twine and thumbtacks.
(Ignore all the Crystal Light bottles sitting there. They were on sale last week and we love adding them to our water bottles.)

It's such a simple idea, but it really adds a fun impact to the window.
