Around here there are a ton of people that we love to give things too–especially if there’s a reason to do it…you know, like a holiday or something. Friends, neighbors, daughters, sons, sweet little grand-babies–they’re all in desperate need of some cute little Cheeto Carrot love–don’t-cha think? I so agree.
I could have used the carrot shaped cello bags that are kicking around now, but I worried that they’d be too small to hold a decent amount of Cheetos. One should NOT be stingy with Cheetos, after all. So, I used 12″ disposable icing bags instead. We’ll have a million left, but I’m sure they’ll be used for another noble cause. Heh…
They were the perfect size.
Had a small struggle finding actual Cheeto Balls. Heaven knows there are every other shape in the world right now, just not round. We found these at Wal-mart–finally, finally.
Again I say they were…perfect!
Last of all we used two strands of green curly ribbon for the carrot tops. As you can see, they are fabulous. Just waiting for a sweet little Easter tag and off they’ll go to their new homes to spread joy and happiness…
Now you may just recognize many of these quick gifts from the past–but a good thing bares repeating–right? So, in the hopes of offering a few fun, fast ideas to help your holidays have a cozy, handmade feel–I’m dusting off a few favorites.
If you’ve spent much time at all with us here–then it’s quite likely, you know that I’m crazy about these little finger puppets from WeeKnit.
I’m so nuts, in fact that I use them for all the Gracious Rain Premiers. I can’t help myself. I LOVE THEM!!
But it’s not just me–Miss Chompy loves them too–and I can prove it–right HERE.
So, of course, I’m freaking out over all the adorable holiday sets…
well, at least the ones that I don’t already have.
So, if I were you–I would whip right on over there and grab some of these cuties up–just in time for Christmas. Oh, and if you use the coupon code “GRain10” you’ll even get 10% off your order–just because you’re a Gracious Rain reader. Hurry though–this offer is good until October 15th.
And I dare say that as soon as Lily sees it, there will be pixie dust everywhere.
It has room to lounge around..
or to play Statue Maker in the corner…
or to just sit back and laugh your head off.
Whatever floats your boat.
With button closures to hold it together…
and a cozy pocket to keep everyone calm and collected and safe. Kinda makes you want to be a fairy–doesn’t it?
Well, if you want to make a sweet little doll house, or barn or garage or fairy cottage–it’s really up to you—I found the instructions at UK Lass in US. Be sure to read through the directions a few times to get it all sorted out in your head. I made 3 at one time–so I’ll have to show you the other two…
