Happy Good Friday my sweet friends!
This day is a precious one as I ponder what my Savior did for me on this very day. I think of Him confronting death in the face, being rejected by His Father, and suffering tremendous pain.
And He did it willingly. For me. And you.
I am in awe of His love.
So I do wonder how many of you are actually reading blogs on this often busy weekend. But I came up with a really cute, last minute Easter favor for the kiddos or the kid at heart.
These DIY Wood Skewers are made simply by painting and gluing wood beads on the end.
You need pastel paint (or any paint of your choice), paintbrush, glue gun, some wood beads (preferably unfinished), and some bamboo skewers.
OK. So don't laugh.
I could not figure out a simple way to paint these without smudging or spinning them. So I stuck two wooden beads on either side of a Q-tip to paint them. I pulled off some of the cotton until I knew it would fit but snugly. Then I dried them with a hair dryer.
That's right people. We can find craft supplies in the loo.
After the beads are dry, I put a little hot glue inside the wood bead and them pushed the blunt end of the skewer in and held it a few seconds until set.
Aren't they pretty?
Now make some Rice Krispies Treats.
I personally could eat a whole pan with no regret. I love them!
Now just cut out some small squares and put your sweet kebabs together!
I topped them off with a mini marshmallow, (so they would not poke an eye out or through the bags) wrapped them in cellophane, and tied them off with baker's twine.
A great treat for family, neighbors, friends, or a homemade treat for the Easter basket.
You could even dye the marshmallow pastel colors to make them fun and colorful. Or shape them like eggs or flowers or whatever. I was all about easy today. :)
I hope you enjoyed this and that you enjoy the precious time of Easter.
Hugs and so much love to each of you!
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:10-12
