marshmallow pumpkins on a vine and Kids in the Kitchen

h'lo all you crazy fall/autumn pinners you!
how's 'bout an easy food craft today?

this one is a fallish/autumnish/halloweenish kinda treat.
well, maybe the vine part is a little much for you but you can always leave that part out...

anyhoo, 
jet puff now makes pumpkin spice marshmallows. pretty yummy huh?

take that along with some sour belt candy and do this:
i won't bore you with my usual step by step instructions. 
it's kinda self-explanatory by the pics i suppose,
as all you do is stack some marshmallows, dip it then decorate with the green part of sour belts, orange candy melt and green starburst candy leaves.
so see, you can do any kind of design you want. 
i made some horizontal and vertical.
then i stuck the stick in a colorful straw for the last little detail.

after i made these, i thought it would be cute as name placecards for parties too by writing the names of your guests on it like i did for the eeek! pumpkins.

unless you know someone by the name of "eeek!" then you are already done with one placecard. do you know of such a person?

...i kinda do...

that person would be me, actually, as i have been saying "eeek!" a lot cuz halloween is coming and i have a million things i wanna create but this nursing job is taking up so much of my energy lately. now all i have time for lately, is pretty much nothing...

"eeek!"
see what i mean?
it makes one crazy.

crazy enough to make all her pictures turn into cartoons.
oh well, at least you always have a party to look forward to on Thursday nites in September around here.

so go on and please link up!

  1. Okay - so I went a little "nuts" linking up! But that's what your site does to me - I get all smiley and giddy and can't wait to have fun too! Besides, you did say we should end on a grand note!
    Your pumpkin sticks are darling - good way to feed 'em to the kiddies without sticky little hands planted all over the dog before I can get to the wash cloth!
