    St. Patricks Day Rice Krispie Treats with Lucky Charms Marshmallows

    I am huge fan of Rice Krispie treats! They’re super easy to make and taste delicious! My kiddos and I wanted to try a twist on the traditional Rice Krispie Treats and make them green and use Lucky Charms Marshmallows for St. Patrick’s Day!  I also like to add vanilla extract to mine to enhance the flavor a bit. I have seen cute versions of this treat with using Lucky Charms cereal but I love the texture and taste of traditional Rice Krispie Treats so we just added the Lucky Charm’s marshmallows separately at the end. Ingredients: 1/4 cup of butter 4 cups of soft marshmallows 5 cups of Rice Krispie cereal 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract green food coloring (optional) approximately 3/4 cup of Lucky Charm’s marshmallows – My kids and I picked them out of the Lucky Charms cereal box and set them in a bowl until we were ready to use them. Heaven help the person who pours themselves a bowl of Lucky Charms sans marshmallows! (hehehe! I’ll blame it on the leprechaun!) Instructions: Melt butter over low…

    Kiss me I’m Irish – St. Patrick’s Day Gift Idea

    I don’t normally give out gifts for St. Patrick’s Day but I think this could be the cutest gift for a teacher or friend who needs a “pick me up” around this time of year. This time of year is rough for me sometimes because honestly, I am so over the winter at this point. We are still fiddling around with 8, 10, 20 degree temperatures and I’m over it. The winter blues can be in full swing for some at this time. Even if you’ve beat the blues, who wouldn’t LOVE a bag or a jar of kisses!? This would be also be so cute to stick in hubby’s car as a surprise on St. Patrick’s Day too!  I’m not Irish so I made two versions of this cute little printable to attach to your little gift. All you need to do is fill a bag or a small jar full of almond kisses (because they’re gold!) and add the cute tag. So cute and easy!   Right click and save or download here.   Download Kiss me I’m Irish…

    New Years Decor Ideas and a Free Printable Banner

    New years comes and goes so quickly so its easy to overlook putting out decor for such a short holiday time! This easy and inexpensive New Years decor ideas will for sure make you want to decorate for New Years! Especially if you’re throwing a party! For this mantel we did some pretty simple decor that gives a definite WOW factor! First, we jazzed up a chalkboard with a fun “Cheers 2014” design. (If you’re looking for a statement chalkboard, contact Savannah at classyclutter4 (at) gmail (dot) com) Next, garlands! We used three different types of garlands on this display. Layering multiple garlands gives the illusion layers and makes it look super jazzy which is exactly what you want for new years! Next, we used metallic tissue paper and made the fringe garland. It’s super easy to make if you’ve never done it before.  You take your tissue paper and fold it as wide as you want your garland to be. We folded it and cut 3″ fringe on each side of the folded paper leaving about a half inch section…

    DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe – Last minute gift idea

    This DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub is seriously amazing. I’m kind of obsessed with it. Sugar scrubs are so beyond easy to make and anyone would love this gift.  DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe  4 cups of sugar 6 candy canes 2 tsp of Peppermint extract 1 cup of baby oil *yields 7 (8 ounce) mason jars Instructions In a blender, blend the candy canes until they are completely crushed. You do not want too many chunky pieces of candy because that would hurt in a scrub! Make sure it’s pretty fine. It should resemble the consistency of the sugar.  In a large bow, mix all ingredients and divide equally into the jars.  Print your tags and attach them with ribbon. You could also print them on sticker paper if you want to stick the labels on the jar. I did 2″ sticker labels for the lids. Download and print your labels below: Peppermint Sugar Scrub gift tags Merry Christmas, friend tags   I made 12 jars for my girlfriends for under $17.  That’s a little over a dollar a jar!…
