Roast Those Marshmallows in Style
No More Mixing Up Sticks!
Yay! It’s finally almost summer. So excited for warm days and nights, kiddos running barefoot on the lawn, catching fireflies… and S’MORES! I love these giant marshmallow-roasting sticks they have available now (I got mine for $1 at Christmas Tree Shops). I don’t like throwing them out after just one use, but then I realized we’d never remember whose was whose unless we marked them (although in reality, I have no objection to sending the kids into the woods to look for sticks, like we used to do). But I wandered into my craft room, looking for a marker, my glance landed upon, yup, my new WASHI TAPE collection (these washi projects are starting to grow on me). Perfect!
Easiest fix ever. And so pretty. You could do a lot of different things with this idea. I already have some plans to have kids decorate and keep their own at B1’s birthday party in July!
Now, storage! I got this galvanized urn at Joann’s (with my 40% coupon, of course; about $7 after discount, but you could do better than that, I was in a rush). I painted a rectangle with chalkboard paint, allowing us to change the message depending on the occasion. Filled the urn with sand, and arranged the sticks!
Now with such pretty sticks, the marshmallows needed some prettying up, too! Enter the fancy Italian glass container (a whopping $5.99 from Christmas Tree Shops).
Even if it’s one of those days that’s too hot for a fire, this display makes a cute centerpiece for a summer party (maybe paired with my ruffled tablecloths), and when the time is right, you don’t have to do much work to break out the key ingredients for S’MORES! Just add the graham crackers and chocolate!
