Christmas Gift ideas and crafts with kids!

Hi Everyone,

Thank you so much for all the well wishes, I am feeling so much better and ready to get into crafting full on!

I have several Christmas gift ideas, I’ve shared on Passionately Artistic site, I hope you had a chance to visit.

Here’s a fun idea I shared on the Want2scrap blog, that you can do with kids very easily…

Chocolate Covered Spoons


If you have to create gifts for a large number of people such as teachers or church admin then this is a quick and easy gift idea you can make in less than 5 min.



  • Want2scrap candy cane die cut
  • Wilton clear bags
  • Clear Spoons
  • Parchment paper
  • Ribbon
  • Bakers dark chocolate, white chocolate
  • Cinnamon spice, marshmallow, sugar candy
How to:
  • Melt the chocolate on a double boiler or melt at 20 sec increments in the microwave, stirring  after each time.
  • On parchment paper, dip the spoon into the melted chocolate, making sure it is coated well. Let cool for 2 min and then sprinkle sugared candy or shaved white chocolate over the spoon. Let cool for 5 min and repeat the process until you have all spoons coated.
  • Add the spoons to the clear bag and tie a ribbon around the bag. Adhere the candy cane diecut to the back with a sentiment and a little extra bling.
Voila you are done!

Isn’t that the cutest???  I could think of a ton of people to give these to.  What a great little gift idea!

Have a great day everyone,

See you tomorrow as I resume the weekly menus.
