I went to my first Christmas gathering last night ... of course I am the last minute person frantically looking for ribbons and pretty things to wrap up my goodies I was bringing... I looked on the floor of the garage and noticed a container filled with burnt out Christmas lights... perfect! I can put these to good use!
I gathered everything I could find and decided I would wrap up the treats in cellophane bags with mix-matched ribbons and old Christmas bulbs.
I love these little dapper gingerbread gents I bought.
Thank you Trader Joes!
I had ran out of time to bake and Trader Joes saved me in a pinch.
They are really moist and taste like homemade.
I had a wonderful evening at the party and my burnt out light-bulbs and store bought baked cookies were a big hit!
Save your old Christmas bulbs and re-purpose for the holidays...a pretty nifty and thrifty, DIY :)
