Pinterest Party

These days, women are obsessed with Pinterest.  Whether we are looking for recipes, clothing options, decor, DIY projects, or adorable newborn baby poses, we look at the one-stop-shop site.  This Monday, Desiree had a Pinterest Party!  It entails two things:
1. Everyone bring a dessert that you find off Pinterest
2.  Make a craft that is from Pinterest
She had decided on a craft and purchased the supplies for us (we paid her back for our portion) so all we did was show up with our dessert.  

I was so worried about not being able to bring a dessert because Monday was insane, but she sent me a Pinterest screenshot of a simple, yet season appropriate dessert.  Witch hats!

It took me like five minutes to put them together.  If I had more time, I would have made the frosting, but I just grabbed the orange Pilsbury frosting.  
I don't have a frosting squeezer (don't know the technical term) so I put the frosting in a ziploc bag, cut the tip and squeezed the frosting around the hole in the middle of the cookie.  SO EASY!!!  Then placed the Hershey kiss on top.

The craft we did at Desiree's were yarn Candy Corns.  If I can do it, anyone can.

 Came home and added them to my Halloween display.  I think I need a bigger entryway table ;) It would also be cute to put them on candlestick holders or a fireplace mantle. 

I loved this idea of a Pinterest Party so much, that I am doing one with cousins in Utah in a couple weeks!  I can't wait!
