3 Ingredient, No Bake Oreo Snowballs

These Oreo snowballs are ALWAYS a big hit with everyone who tastes them and the best thing is you don’t have to bake anything!!


Ingredients:

1 pack of Oreos

1 8oz tub of cream cheese

12-18 oz of melting chocolate

Instructions:

1. Crush your pack of Oreos. You can use a food processor, blender or place them in a plastic baggy and pound until crushed. (Obvi food processor or blender are most efficient)

2. Pour your crushed Oreos into a large bowl. Mix in your softened cream cheese until you cannot see any cream cheese.

3. Place in your freezer or refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

4. Melt your chocolate as directed on packaging then take your Oreo balls out and dip them in your chocolate until completely covered. (Add sprinkles or other festive fun at this time).

12 Days of DIY Christmas- Day 5: How-To Wrap a Gift

Are you a gift-wrapper or gift-bagger?? Well either way I’m here to show you how to easily wrap a gift, so your wrapping doesn’t look like a 5 year old did it… you know who you are!

1. Pick out your perfect Christmas wrapping paper!

2. Take whatever you are wrapping and measure out exactly how much paper you will need to cover each side.

3. Starting where your box ended, plus an inch more and cut your wrapping paper.

4. Start wrapping by taking on end of your wrapping paper and covering your gift so the side and top are completely covered and tape in place.

5. To make sure you have a clean line, fold 1/4 inch of the edge and continue to wrap rest of the box.

6. Now, because of the style of wrapping paper I got, I had a lot of excess on the sides that I don’t need. So, I measure how much I need to cut off.

7. Cut any excess off the sides that’s needed.

8. Throw it away! (Or save for later on a small gift or project)

9. Lastly, pick the right or left side to start with and fold in and tape. Repeat for other side. Then, take the top and bottom and neatly fold down and tape.

10. YOURE DONE! They perfectly wrapped box. No more wasting paper because you didn’t cut enough to cover the whole present.


More Tips:

1. The key to perfect wrapping is making sure you keep your lines tight, so be sure your creasing folds and edges as you’re going along.

2. Don’t be afraid to use the tape! I typically space out multiple pieces of tape when taping down edges to help prevent crinkles and gaps.

3. Remember you’re just wrapping a gift, it’s not the olympics… if you just aren’t good at it… use a gift bag. Lol

12 Days of DIY Christmas – Day 1: Yarn Wall Hanger

Day One of Blonde by the Shore’s 12 Days of DIY Christmas is here, and today I’m going to show you this super simple DIY wall hanger. Wall hangers are not only very “in” right now, but they’re also super easy to make! I love how easily customizable they are for any decor. That is why I feel they can make the perfect gift! Now, let’s get into how to make it…

Step One: Gather your supplies

Supplies:

  • 2 Wooden Embroidery Hoops (Make sure to get 2 different sizes so one is larger than the other)
  • 2 different colored yarn (I also opted for 2 different textured yarns)
  • Scissors

Step 2: Pop the inner hoop out of each embroidery hoop.

Step 3: Cut your yarn DOUBLE the length you want it to be. (As pictured below)

Step 4: If your yarn is not already folded in half as above, do so now. Then place the looped part under the hoop.

Step 5: Take the end of your yarn and loop it through the top loop and pull all the way through.

Step 6: Repeat steps 3-5 until you’ve covered at about 1/4 of the hoop.

Step 7: Repeat the above steps for the smaller hoop. IMG_5552

Step 8: Line up the tops of the two hoops.

Step 9: Take yarn of your choosing and tie the tops of the two hoops together and leaving a loop out at the top to be able to hang, and you’re done! IMG_5554

This gift is super quick and so easy. You can make it any color, add braids, beads, or even make it more intricate than this one. The possibilities are pretty much endless and make the perfect gift for anyone.
