Popsicle Stick Christmas Tree Ornament

We go through a lot of popsicle sticks around here. Recently, my 5 year old and I made Christmas trees out of popsicle sticks, and it was interesting seeing his unique twists on the classic. Mine is on the left, his is on the right (his reminds me of trees we made 2 years ago):Popsicle Stick Tree @ whatilivefor.net Popsicle Stick Tree @ whatilivefor.net

Christmas Safety Tips for You

What is better than a Christmas get together?
Saving money and being safe.
Well, in some cases, we want to enjoy the lovely Christmas moments. However, taking care of yourself and your loved ones is important too.

Holiday lights
It is important to inspect light strings carefully and if you find any cords that are frayed, they should be discarded. Also, look for loose connections and cracked lamp holders. They can be dangerous. So, look for them and keep yourself safe. If you are replacing bulbs, be sure that the new bulb’s wattage and voltage match the specification of the original bulb. If you are not sure about it, check it online and place an online order for it. Here, if the order is of more than five bulbs, purchase it from overstock.com.

I used one of my biggest bowls to trace. Then trace and cut out a smaller circle inside. Paint it white, or whatever color you want and let dry.

SuperPretzel Bavarin Rolls review

Disclosure: I received products for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are my own. 

 There is nothing like the taste of a pretzel...whether it's simply salted, or sweetened with cinnamon and sugar. They are a great snack, and SuperPretzel has made it easy to enjoy pretzels at home. Their pretzels can be heated in the microwave or oven with minimal mess and effort.

My husband and I were able to enjoy the new Bavarian Rolls and Bavarian Sticks as our late night treat after our kiddos were in bed. They were perfect to heat up quickly before we sat down to enjoy a show together. I really enjoyed how soft and flavorful these pretzels were.

We also tried the rolls as a sandwich with beef and cheese in them. While I thought the pretzel flavor was a little overwhelming in the sandwich, I did enjoy the taste. It was a change from the usual bread sandwiches, and very convenient. These would be perfect to serve as appetizers at a party, or for family movie night.

You can find SuperPretzel's Bavarian Pretzel Rolls and Pretzel Sticks in the freezer section of your local grocery store. (Find SuperPretzel on Facebook too!) Pin It
