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

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!
