Celebrating: Ava's Cinderella Pumpkin Carriage!

Well, Pintrest strikes again!  I saw this Cinderella Pumpkin Carriage several months ago,  pinned it and have been anxiously a waiting Halloween’s arrival so I could make it.
The best part – this adorable piece cost less than $8.00 to make because everything (excluding the pumpkin) came from the Dollar Store.   Not only that, but I have lots of jewels and glitter stickers left for another project.   It was not only cost friendly, but simple to make!

I made it for my 5 year old niece Ava. I think it got her approval!

And instead of tossing the seeds like I generally do, I opted to toast them for a snack.  I really wanted a sweet/salty combo, so I went on the internet to find a recipe.  I found exactly what I was looking for!


From Realsimple Magazine…

Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds

2 cups Pumpkin Seeds
2 TBS unsalted butter (melted)
2 TBS granulated sugar
1.2 tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 300 degrees. Spread send on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until thoroughly dry – about 50-60 minutes.
Increase oven temp to 350.  In a large bowl, toss seeds with butter, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Return seeds to baking sheet and toast –tossing occasionally until golden brown.  About 10-15 minutes. 

Ya’ll com back!

May the Lord bless his people with peace and happiness and let them CELEBRATE!  Psalm 64:10
