This past week I spent an evening with my friend Courtney (of The Vintagerie) making crafts and sipping cocktails. We made a fabulous holiday garland, beautiful snowflakes, an adorable gingerbread-man garland, and eggnog martinis. We were definitely feeling festive!
I had originally wanted to purchase a garland that I found at Paper Source, but I had all the supplies at home. So with a little elbow grease, I made one of my own! I also had a yearning for some eggnog, but didn’t want to do a traditional eggnog recipe, so I opted for a lighter (in calorie) option.
See all our fun crafts and recipes below!
For the garland, we used:
String or ribbon (in whichever color you prefer)
Cardboard for circle cutouts – I had some leftover that were pre-made from paper source. (TIP: Use cereal boxes as well!)
White printer paper
Pick a font online and print out letters (TIP: Make extra letters for a birthday sign later on)
Construction paper (in color of your choosing)
Hot glue gun
Cup to trace circles
For the snowflakes, we used:
White coffee filters
For the Gingerbread-Man Garland, we used:
Brown construction paper
Red construction paper
Hot glue gun
String or twine
For the eggnog martinis, we used:
Nutmeg and Cinnamon- to taste
**Fill a shaker with ice, 1 ounce vodka, 1 ounce schnapps, and 2 ounces eggnog. Shake and pour into glass. Top with nutmeg and cinnamon. (TIP: Rim your glass with cinnamon sugar and nutmeg, or put a cinnamon stick in it for added zest!
Happy Holidays…from my home to yours!
