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!
