Day 5- A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020

                  A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020 – Day 5

Thank you for joining me for my 12 Days of Christmas 2020.

If you missed the previous 4 days- there will be a link at the end of this post.

This year I am going back to basics of why I started my blog and that was to inspire you to make, bake, create and decorate, all on a budget of course.  From now until the end of November, I will share some simple, easy and budget friendly ideas just in time for the holidays.

Day 5:  No Bake Energy Balls

 

If you are looking for the perfect little snack to help curb your sweet craving, these no bake energy balls provide the perfect mid-day boost for you or any member of your family. Made with just four wholesome and filling ingredients.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup natural creamy peanut butter or Peabutter – (if you have an allergy to peanut butter (boo – I do))
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup honey

How to:

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix well until all ingredients are coated.
  • Scoop the mixture using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon and roll into balls.
  • Refrigerate on lined baking sheet for 1 hour or until firm.
  • Store refrigerated in tightly covered container until ready to eat.

You can take these no bake energy balls up a notch by dipping in melted chocolate.  Once energy bites are dipped in melted chocolate, return to parchment paper and refrigerate for another hour until the chocolate is set. They would make a great hostess gift, great neighbor gifts and of course a healthy snack to leave for Santa.

 

 

Easy, no bake energy balls.  It’s AWandafulThing!

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 7

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 7

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

Today is Day 7 and this gift falls into the “thrifted” and “gifted” category. This gift is for my mother, who is the great grandmother to my daughter’s three children. A beautiful boy who is 2 and a half and a set of twins 4 months old. This gift was actually the one that cost the least amount of money but I am sure it will be the one most treasured, especially for a person who doesn’t really need anything.

I found two very similar photo frames at Goodwill for $2.00 and a small wooden plaque for $0.50.  I soaked the top of the plaque with a wet rag and the paper picture peeled right off.

 

I printed and cut two pictures to fit into the frames and printed, cut and mod podged the third picture onto the little wooden plaque. 

I just know Great Nanny Louise is going to love this present. I smiled the whole time I was putting it together. Three adorable faces we all love.

I invite you to come back and see what Day 8 brings.

Thrifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 4

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day4

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

Today is Day 4 and this gift falls into the “thrifted” category.

I found two  large apothecary jars at an Estate Sale this year and knew they would make great gifts.  I was attracted to the “Shine A Light” on the front of the jar. One of the jars got some twigs, fake snow and silver balls and the other some fake snow and a candle.

I saw a very similar idea at IKEA this year with twigs and balls in a large clear jar.

I know these will look great in their new homes. I hope the recipients feel the same way. I cannot wait for you to come back and see what Day 5 brings.

Thrifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.
