Step 1: First, you’ll want to glitter the straps of the shoes. Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to one of your straps, and sprinkle liberally with glitter. Tap to remove excess. Repeat with your other shoe.

Step 2: Tape off the sides of the shoe, so that when you use your foam brush to add Mod Podge to the side of your shoe, you’ll get a scallop shape once tape is removed.

Step 3: Use your round foam brush to dot Mod Podge around the perimeter of your shoe. Sprinkle with glitter, and then remove the tape.

easy valentine’s day gift–hot cocoa spoons!

hot cocoa spoons 2 400x600 easy valentines day gift  hot cocoa spoons!

We’re quickly approaching Valentine’s Day, so I wanted to share one last quick and easy DIY perfect for teacher, neighbor, and everyone-else gifts!

I’m a huge fan of hot cocoa in the Winter, so these DIY Hot Cocoa spoons are right up my alley. Drop into a cellophane bag, add a hot cocoa packet, and tie with some twine or ribbon, and you’re done!

Start with some wooden spoons, and the chocolate of your choice. Melting chocolate is GREAT for this, as it hardens well and the spoons don’t need to be refrigerated. I had this delicious Dulce de leche from Trader Joe’s, though, that I wanted to try, and all I can say is “wow.” So good. While your spoon is still wet, dip into the toppings of your choice.

Step 1: Gather your supplies. I cut the printables into rectangles, and then cut out scrapbook paper rectangles half an inch larger.
