Snailed It!

Merry Christmas Eve!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful and fun holiday with beloved family and friends! 
Here is a little Pinstrosity that Nicole sent us about awesome food that is also decor! What's better than that?! 
Nothing that I can think of right now, but then again I am currently on a Christmas sugar high, so I may or may not be particularly partial haha

The Pinstrosity

Nicole cleverly named this one her self "Snailed It"! I love it , it fits perfectly!

The problem here is that the products she used didn't quite match up with the original, however this is one of those where I think it really just makes it stinkin' cute as opposed to an actual Pinstrosity :) 
The directions of the original say that the stickiness of the gumdrops (once you cut a small edge off the back side) are enough for them to stick to the peppermints by themselves, but just in case Nicole used frosting, you can do this but I don't think that it is necessary. 
Also, she didn't put eyes on her little guys, but I think that either way they still look like snails so those also aren't necessary. 
She used "Rip It" pieces for the antennae, instead of licorice twists, but I think they definitely do the job, so I think they can stay :)

I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday with their loved ones close and happy.
 Now it's time that I go do the same!


Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Festivus, and Lovely Winter Festivities Pinstrosipeeps!

  1. Snails actually have eyes at the end of their antennae, so...

  3. I'm thinking this would make a better spring decoration and I think it came out well.
