DIY Dip Mix Ornaments
I have had a crazy week and a half with a doggie that is in a terrible amount of pain. I had so many things planned that never got posted. Ugh! Life does that sometimes. It gets in the way of blogging. One thing I have learned over the past two years of blogging, is that no matter how much I love blogging and sharing ideas with all of you, my LIFE has to come first. Not only for my own sanity but for those around me to. I thank all of you for understanding that!
I am going to share a couple of last minute Christmas gifts for you to make. This one is for 3 super cute DIY Ornaments that have dip mixes in them. These would be great to give as a hostess gift, a creative twist for an ornament swap, or a nice little something for your mailman or neighbor. Besides being super easy to make, they are also a very inexpensive gift to give away.
DIY DIP MIX ORNAMENTS:
Start by washing your ornaments and drying them well. Use a funnel to fill with dry ingredients, print and attach a label to identify flavor and the recipe. Cut paper out in a strip and run the scissor blade down the strip of paper, it will curl just like ribbon. You can either print out each instruction or you can write it out on your preferred label.
