  • Poinsettia Holiday Garland DIY

    It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas... and I couldn't be happier.

    A while back, I came across Oh Happy Day's DIY for flower garland using cupcake wrappers and string lights, and decided that I would give it a Christmas spin. This is such a fun and easy project - definitely one you can do while catching up on TV or just relaxing to some Holiday jams. (I'm quite partial to this one.)

    He went on to make the most delicious, simplest apple pie I have ever witnessed. I would liken it to watching Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel, or Einstein discovering E=mc2. It was that brilliant. Swear.

    To make things even more awesome, he used fake butter and fake sugar and saved on a lot of calories. Score.
