I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful to be able to spend the day with family and friends.
This week has gotten away from me. Jaime and I have been busy getting ready to host Thanksgiving, but now that the harvest rolls, sweet potato pies, red velvet cupcakes, pumpkin bread, and sweet potato casserole have been made, I wanted to post a quick project — clothespin star Christmas ornaments.
These flowers are relatively easy to make, yet are very pretty on baked goods. I have made a couple of variations of these, but I made the ones that I am sharing today for Jaime and my summer party.
These flowers were inspired by Southern Living’s gumdrop flowers. I wasn’t able to find any gum drops at the grocery stores that we frequent–and thought the taste of spice drops, which the stores did have would be too strong–so I used fruit slice candy.
