Lit'l Smokies and Spinach Tartlets #BringHillshireHome

** I have been compensated for this post by Hillshire Brands™ through the Mom it Forward Blogger Network but opinions are 100% my own.**

 Can you believe that the holiday season is fast approaching? Gatherings with family and friends will occur and company will come visit, and with that comes serving delicious things to eat.

Today, I have a super yummy appetizer recipe for you that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Plus, it is easy! 

Mmmmmm... they are so good and no one would ever suspect they were made using Lit'l Smokies.
Plus, Lit'l Smokies are a great source of protein so you are making a healthy appetizer as well!

Of course you do!!

Witch Hat Fascinator

This post was previously shared at See Vanessa Craft on Oct. 2, 2014.

 I shared this project over at See Vanessa Craft for Vanessa's 30 Crafty Days of Halloween and wanted to share it with all of you as well!

 It is super cute and easy!
I thought I would make a Fascinator, you know, those small hats or head pieces you see people wear to Royal Weddings and what not in England, and a witch hat turned out to be the perfect fit! 

 Here is how you can make one for yourself! 

-12x12 sheet of black card stock paper
-Embellishments- ribbon, stickers, flowers, pic for creating a wreath, whatever you choose
-Double sided tape or  hot glue gun
-Cutting Machine- I used my Silhouette.
-Alligator Clips
-Thin piece of card board (cereal boxes work great!)
