Here’s a super simple and easy to do craft for the holidays! The best part about them is they end up making the room smell great!
Orange and Clove Holiday Decoration

Place oranges so they are sitting on their own without rolling. Decorate the oranges by piercing the orange’s skin with the cloves making any pattern you would like. Making sure they will be able to sit on their own when done.

Candy Cane Candle Holder
1 small white dipping sauce cup (we got ours at Target)
½ cup crushed candy canes
1 tea candle with a clear holder (we got a pack at Pier 1 imports)
Fill cup with crushed candy canes until almost full. (leave room for the tea candle or it will overflow) Place a tea candle in the center of the cup pushing the candle down until it is only showing a little bit. Once the tea candle is in place you can light it.
*Caution NEVER leave burning candles unattended*

1 cup Crushed Oreos
1 pack see-through plastic cups

Get ready for Santa with this cute and simple sugar cookie decoration idea!
Santa Hat Cookies
1 pack sugar cookies (we used Pepperidge Farm sugar cookies)
1 box of strawberries
1 can whipped cream
Cut the end off all the strawberries and place into a bowl. Place the cookies on a plate.
Spread a small amount of the canned whipped cream onto the cut end of the strawberries and place in the middle of each cookie. Then spread a tiny amount on the tip of the strawberries to resemble Santa’s Hat.
A cute idea just in time for winter!
1 Can White Frosting
1 Pack Marshmallows
1 pack orange candies
1 tube black gel food coloring (we used Betty Crocker Classic Gel Food Colors)
Bake cupcakes as directed on box and let cool.
Cover the cupcakes with the white frosting and allow them to sit for 15 minutes before decorating.
Place two marshmallows on top of each other on the cupcake pressing gently and using a dab of frosting to stick them together. Place two dots of gel food coloring into the top marshmallow to form the eyes. Stick an orange candy into the marshmallow to form the nose.
