This time of year I begin craving color, light, and happy things. What can you find around the house that can add a little cheer?

How about sprinkles? This week, I'm going to show you some happy little things you can do with these sweethearts of the pantry.


Sprinkles make pretty confetti. Sprinkle them all about the table.


It's like an instant party. Just because.


And that makes me happy.



Star sprinkles can be found in most supermarkets.

Cotton Candy Balloons!

Every year, I love creating a fun photo opportunity for visitors at the entrance of The Farm Chicks Show. This year, I constructed a big bunch of cotton candy balloons.



For me, cotton candy is fun. And happy. And wouldn't this be fun to make for a photo op (or decoration) at your next party?

To construct:

  1. Hot glue paper cones to bags of cotton candy.
  2. Affix long strings to the cones.
  3. Hot glue bags together to create a huge bunch of "balloons".
  4. Hang bunch from ceiling with several pieces of clear heavy duty fishing line.
  5. Once hung, tie all the loose strings (hanging from the bottom of the cones) together to create a knot, just as a balloon peddler would.

Tip: I repackaged my bags of cotton candy using clear bags, rather than the clown themed bags they came in. (It just fit better with what I had in my mind).

Special thanks to the wonderful Samantha Cabrera for these images from the show.
