Are you hosting a football party or maybe a Super Bowl Party?  My son was having a Football Party, but I did not want to spend a bunch on decorations.  But at the same time I wanted it to look fun and festive.  I decided to make fun, low cost football serving containers for the chips out of a brown paper lunch sack.  At first I just dumped the chips right in the bag… but that left grease spots all over them.  I found it works best to keep the chips in their normal bag, and fold the top down or cut it off.  Then use the brown paper bag as the outer shell.

A bag of chips has a LOT of air in it, so I bought medium size bag of chips and it filled up the small (standard) lunch sack just perfect.  Start out by taking the flat, brown bag and drawing on the black laces of the football.  I did mine with a sharpie marker.  Open up your bag and  then fold down the top a few times to create a “bowl” out of your bag. Put your opened bag of chips inside, cut off the top of the bag or roll it down so it will not show.  You can use Football Stickers  and Craft Twine to decorate the bag too.  Clean up is super easy, just toss the bag in the trash and you are done 🙂

Easy way to clean the rim of your Instant Pot electric pressure cooker

I absolutely love my Instant pot pressure cooker. It is by far my favorite kitchen appliance or gadget! I love how fast it cooks meals and that it doesn’t heat up my house. I love that the food seems to always come out perfect and that it is a lot easier to use than I thought it might be.

There is just one thing I didn’t like about it until recently. The rim around the top where the lid goes on. I could not get it clean enough. I felt like there were drips and crumbs that weren’t getting wiped off thoroughly. Until I figured this trick out!

Those little, spongy paint brushes are the perfect size and perfect for getting into that hard to reach groove. I dip the brush into my hot soapy water and go around the rim a couple of times. It is the perfect answer!

Here is what you will need to make your Halloween Peeper Pumpkin:

  • Faux or real pumpkin. Any color.
  • Assorted googly eyes ($1 bag at Dollar Tree)
  • Craft or hot glue, glue gun

Dollar Tree carries black and white googly eyes as well as multi colored googly eyes. Children may enjoy both varieties! If you want a simple look like us, black and white is perfect. If not, snag a bag of the colored eyes.

Directions:
1. Begin by deciding how you want to arrange your googly eyes. Do you want a pattern, or would you prefer them to be random? For ours, we opted for a bunch of eyes near the center and the rest randomly scattered.
2. Apply some glue to the back of your googly eyes. Press them one at a time to the pumpkin. Hold them in place for several seconds until the eye is secure.
3. Continue the process until all of the eyes are secured to the pumpkin. Be sure as you glue, you alternate sizes of eyes to offer some real variety.
4. Once your eyes are dry, your peeper pumpkin is ready to be displayed.

Kids will love gluing googly eyes all over their pumpkins to create a spooky look. Give this easy and very inexpensive Halloween Peeper Pumpkin a try. It is a great way to get into the Halloween season without spending a great deal of time or dough!
