Cream Puffs!!

These are some of the best picnic desserts I have had in my life. Everyone loves them and you can do different flavors to suit everyone!

1 Tube Crescent Rolls
2 Small Packages Instant Vanilla Pudding
2.5 Cups Milk
1 Can Pie Filling of Your Choice (blueberry, strawberry, and cherry are our favs!)
8 Ounces Cool Whipped Topping

* Make sugar free by using sugar free pudding, pie filling, and whipped topping!

Mix pudding and milk with whisk until smooth. Place in fridge until needed.

Take each crescent roll and shape it over the bottom of a greased muffin tin. They do not have to be perfect but try to push seems together.  Pictured below.
Bake for 10-11 minutes until golden brown!
Turn over into a cake pan to cool. 

See perfect little cups! Place a scoop of pudding mix in each cup. Use all the pudding mix they might look full but it will be good at the end. Place a dollop of cool whip on each cup again you can use all the cool whip. Last place a good bit of filling on top each. Make sure you stir the filling up or else you won't get all the yummy fruit! 

Refrigerate for atleast an hour and enjoy!

DIY Upcycled Cabinet

I this ugly green cabinet off a selling group on Facebook for $10. It was good wood, just a hideous color. 
Black Paint
Glittered Lacquer
Silver Spray Paint
Mirrors ( I got mine from Gettysburg Glass Company for $10)
Very strong glue
A handy man or two

  1. I removed the doors by unscrewing the hinges. 
  2. Then painted everything with the black paint I got at a craft store. 
  3. After 3 coats of that I sprayed the whole thing with glitter to give it a nice glow. 
  4. My Dad happened to have epoxy which is what we used to glue.
  5. Then spray paint the hard wear silver.
  6. Put everything back together and wah-la! A beautiful new nail polish cabinet!

Everything is organized chaos inside the cabinet! It is a great little cabinet for nail polishes, brushes, remover etc. 

Remember when you see that ugly free stuff along the road imagine what you could do with it!
