These Oreo Cheesecake Waffle Cones Are So Good

I love anything made with cream cheese. Seriously, it’s make my mouth water, and I have zero self control. So, it wasn’t hard for me to get on the bandwagon with these Oreo Cheesecake Waffle Cones. They are so delicious, and made from scratch. Friends and family will love them year-round. You can use regular Oreos, gluten-free Oreos (if you haven’t tried these, you are missing out), or even sprinkles.

Halloween Diffuser: Spooky Skeleton Spa

We love our essential oils and diffusers. Literally, we use them all the time. Our diffuser just got Halloween-ified! We can’t take credit for this concept. Amanda with Project Whim put her diffuser inside a cute pumpkin container for Halloween, and we were smitten with the idea. She’s adorable, and you should follow her.

It’s so simple, we don’t need to list the steps. Just drill a hole in the bottom back of the cauldron with a drill bit large enough to fit the cord through. My 9-year-old helped me with this step, so you can do it!  Set the diffuser inside, add water, an oil or oil blend in the diffuser and then hang the skeletons from the sides. It’s an instantly festive Halloween decor item you can use year after year. Plus, it smells amazing, and you can add oils for any mood!

DIY Bleach Ice Dye Sweatshirt

First of all, I can’t believe I have a teenager. Well, not officially, but it sure looks like it…and she sure acts like it. I’m beyond grateful for her, but may God help us. She helped me with my latest project – DIY Ice Dye with Bleach! Tie-dye apparel is all the rage for tweens, teens, and let’s face it, adults, too! We all love to wear it (especially in our loungewear). After making our sweatshirts, we are hooked to this ice dye technique. Bring on all the bleach ice dye projects!

Fall In The Kitchen: Baked Pumpkin Donuts

It’s officially pumpkin season! I don’t know whether to rejoice because of all the cozy feels, or cry, because when falls arrives, winter is just around the corner. My daughter has been wanting to make donuts, so we spent some time in the kitchen, and used pumpkin as the main ingredient.

This recipe is really easy because it involves a box of cake mix. You donut want to miss this one – get the kids involved, too!

Recipe and directions for these Baked Pumpkin Donuts are at Momtastic.

We Used Baking Soda to Paint This DIY Designer Vase

This beautiful vase caught our eye. But, $150+ isn’t in our budget for a vase, so we took a trip to the thrift store and made a DIY version. We are slightly obsessed! We’ve been wanting to try the new baking soda + paint trend, so that DIY paint method was used in the making of this vase. It’s a must-try!

All the details to make this DIY designer vase are here, at Momtastic.
