Felt Clippies and Marshmallow Sticks

So I have had about 7 projects going on in my house today.  That is not including the grocery shopping, cleaning, or feeding my family.  However, I didn't manage to complete 2 or 3.  Sophie came to me a couple of days ago, telling me that she would be dressing as a princess to go to preschool.  She said she had to wear a crown so we had to come up with an alternate to the real thing and this is the finished product.
I made a paper crown first to trace onto the felt.  Folded the felt so it would be double layered, cut it out.  Stitched the edges with black thread,  added beads and her name.  Then I hot glued a strip of felt to the alligator clip and hot glued the clip to the crown.  She is so excited she will get to wear her crown after all.

This weekend we are appreciating teachers at our church, so I thought we might make some goodies for them.  A couple of weekends ago, Mrs. Jessica, from, brought some Mashmallow pops for a snack at our Art Class.  The kids and adults loved them.  Then I saw another blog, the name escapes me at the moment, that gave the idea of doing S'More flavored pops.  Went to Walmart and what do they have, the Caramel Vanilla Mallows.  YUM!  So I scooped them up and Sophie and I got busy.
Such an easy project for sweet Sophie to take part in too.
I will be posting more projects soon, but for now we will delight in the S'More Pops!
