Hey, That's Pintastic!

Happy Monday!! Which can only mean I've lost my mind since I put the words happy and Monday together in the same sentence. I blame it on the lack of sleep.

Today, I'm linking up with AP.

This past weekend, I made it my life's mission (so dramatic) to complete a project I've pinned on Pinterest. I can't tell you how many pins I have yet I have NEVER actually followed through with any of the projects/crafts. I wanted something for our dining room table. Something simple and easy enough to do while Little Mister is sleeping.
 
I decided to make Peppermint Trees. All you need is small peppermint candies, 2 Styrofoam cones and a glue gun. Just unwrap the candies and glue them to the Styrofoam cone. It's pretty easy and if I can do it, you can, too! I didn't take pictures as I was working on the pieces, I was attempting to get them completed along with tackling dinner and laundry during nap time.
 
Here is the boring before picture

 
And here are the finished works of art


The top of the cones where a bit bare so I used cupcake toppers to fill it in. I really liked the extra touch. The total cost for this was less than $10 and took less than an hour. I'm now going to look for something to "set" the peppermints in hopes that I can reuse these next year!

Visit again next week to see what project Connor and I tackle!
