Remake {Pinterest}

I have 1,400 pins (way too many) on Pinterest and only a few things have I actually accomplished in recreating. This post is going to be dedicated to those projects which I have actually done and their outcomes. These have all been done in the past several months that I've started my Pinterest account, so please don't think I cranked out all these crafts within the past week! HA! That would be crazy!!!

1. Halfway to Heaven Cookies *****

I showed a picture of these in one of my previous posts. I've made them 3 times now. For the first time a few weeks ago, once while in Kentucky for the week, and again when I took them to a tailgating party. Seriously- if you love cookies that are crispy and soft at the same time- try these! They're "healthy" because of the oatmeal & peanut butter!! ;)

2. Watermark Tee **

Whenever I get time to spend with my little sister, I would have a craft for us to do. I can't tell you how many paintings, beadings, wedding crafts, nail paintings, face paintings, makeup/overs, felt, etc things we have done. This time, K wanted to make a shirt for going to football games. We decided on this pin because she could write out song lyrics and popular quotes while I used Dr. Seuss quotes on mine.
*Unfortunately my quotes blended together and both of our colors ended up purple and not navy blue.

3. Fishtail Braid ****

I finally got the hang of doing this braid and really like it alot! You can even pull it apart to look messy! Plus, I can't believe how easy it is!! You have to try it!

4. Yarn Letter ****

I had a cardboard letter from Hobby Lobby that I knew would work perfectly for this craft. It was a pretty simple craft that anyone could do!
*The easiest thing for me was to wrap it all one direction and go back over in the opposite direction

5. Waterfall Braid ***
At first I tried to do this without instructions by french braiding and taking the top piece and dropping it thru the twist part. I was able to practice this on my sister-in-law and it was kind of hard to concentrate trying not to do a french braid. There is a better video tutorial on my board where the girl takes out a piece from the bottom and lets it drop instead of the entire piece. I'm not sure which is correct, but either one works.

6. Deep Dish Cookie Pies ***

These were pretty good cookies as well, but I used M&Ms inside instead of chocolate chips! 

I linked the actual pin and which board I pinned it to :)
