Cute DIY Easter Bunny

Easter is almost here!

We are pretty smitten with this cute Easter Bunny made with a honeycomb ball and paper!  Super simple! So make one or two of these super cute little honey bunnies (get it…honeycomb + bunny…honey bunny)!

These little cuties are so easy to make! Here’s what you will need:


5″ Honeycomb ball

Card stock in 3 different colors (I used silver, pink and black)

Hot glue

Printable guide (print out on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper)

Print out the guide on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper, then cut out the shapes. Trace the cutouts onto your card stock. For the ears and eyes I traced just one and then folded the paper in half and cut. Hot glue the inner ear to the outer ear, then hot glue the completed ears onto the honeycomb ball. Make sure the string to hang the balls is at the top of the head.

For the eyelashes cut along each of the vertical lines to make fringe, then cut every other piece off. This is a little tricky, but it makes the lashes more noticeable. Hot glue the lashes to the ball.

Next cut out the nose and hot glue to the honeycomb ball. You can add whiskers, but I chose not to.

Place the little bunnies on your Easter table or outside at your Easter egg hunt.

There you have it! A fun and fast Easter craft. What kind of Easter crafts, besides dying eggs, do you do at home?

Hoppy trails!


Lucky Leprechaun Potion

Do you have a leprechaun that plays tricks at your house?  We’ve got one that likes to turn our milk green, but he also leaves yummy treats so we can’t get too mad at him.

This St. Patrick’s Day surprise your littles with Lucky Leprechaun Potion.  We poured milk into one of our cute little milk jugs then added green food coloring and just a dash of mint extract (got to keep things interesting). Add a cute tag to it and voila!  Lucky Leprechaun Potion!

I like to make a little treat to go with the potion – this year I’m making Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats.  Brown Eyed Baker has a fab recipe and it’s so easy!  If you like rice crispy treats you’ll love these!

Here’s how to make it…

Get 3 bags of colored Wilton Candy Melts.  I chose two shades of green and white.  Order some Candyfetti from Sweets Indeed and pick up some marshmallow cereal from the store.  Separate the marshmallows out.magical leprechaun bark

Cover a shallow baking pan with foil.

Melt the candy melts in the microwave for 1 minute.  Stir the melts and put them back in for 30 seconds.  Stir again (at this point you could add flavoring to your candy melts) and pour onto baking tray.  Do this will all three colors.

Once you have all your colors poured onto the baking tray use a fork or toothpick to swirl the colors together.

Sprinkle the Candyfetti and marshmallows onto the chocolate.  Place the tray in the refrigerator for an hour or two.  Once firm you can lift the foil off the baking tray, turn the leprechaun bark onto the counter and peel the foil away.  Break the bark into small pieces.  Eat it as is or put it on cupckaes, cakes, make hot chocolate with it, wrap it up in a cello bag and give it as a gift.  So many magical possibilities!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

10 St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here, which means it’s time to decorate! I’ve pulled together 10 of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day decorating ideas to make your celebration fun, festive and fancy!

Let’s start with your table décor. I love these mini clover pots! They are tiny, elegant and are the perfect shade of green. Use them as individual place settings or as a centerpiece. Then after your meal, guests can take them home as a party favor!

Via Chica and Jo

Another great centerpiece idea are these hand painted gold mason jars. Line the center of your table with a few of these. Add candles inside or small bunches of white flowers. Use different sized jars to add visual interest and height to your tablescape.

Via Mason Jar Crafts

These lucky penny printables would be a cute addition to each place setting. Place one card in the center of each plate at your table. It’s a fun and simple touch that won’t go unnoticed.

Via See Vanessa Craft

I think these printable shamrocks are darling! Add them to a paper straw and you’ve got a drink that’s Pinterest worthy and ready to party!

Via Lia Griffith

Aren’t these the cutest cups you’ve ever seen? These leprechaun belt cups are as simple to make as they are darling! How fun would these be on your St. Patrick’s Day table?

Via Cutefetti

Now for the rest of your space. Need a great backdrop? Check out this incredible DIY shamrock balloon wall! This is sure to make a statement at any party.

Via The House That Lars Built

Banners are a fun and easy way to dress up any space. Make your St. Patty’s Day perfect with these 3 printable banners. Hang them across your mantle or from a dessert bar or food table. Hang them individually or in groups for a bigger impact. I love how these are draped across a chalkboard!

Via Ella Claire

Feeling extra crafty? This do it yourself Lucky sign is classy and fun! This would be really cute hanging on your front door. I always say, your front porch is a great opportunity to greet guests with styled party décor. It’s a great way to give them a sneak peak of what’s inside!

Via Landeelu

Balloons are such a fun way to add dimension and flair to any party.  These clear confetti balloons are so pretty! With the addition of a few shamrock stickers, they are all dressed up for St. Patrick’s Day!

Via Design Improvised

At Fancy That we carry balloons in several different sizes as well as clear balloons. Want confetti with that? We can customize your confetti balloons too! Just choose your colors and let us do the rest. Add shamrock stickers to the outside just like these and your DIY couldn’t be easier! Stop by our party shoppe and check out our balloon bar! We’ll help you pull together just the right look for your St. Patrick’s Day party.

Balloon wands are all the rage. These shamrock balloon wands are fun and unique. They are easy to make and are just too cute! I especially love the tassel detail. You could add these to clear mason jars around your space, use them as a centerpiece on your table or as fun party favors for each of your guests.

Via The Flair Exchange

Don’t you just love it all? I hope these St. Patrick’s Day party ideas have inspired you to get crafty and to get decorating! With a little bit of luck, these simple touches will not only make your celebration beautiful but memorable as well.

No Bake Egg Nog Cheesecake Recipe

Eggnog is a staple around our house during the holiday season. We drink it plain, pour it over our oatmeal, blend it up with ice cream…this time I’ve combined it with one of my other favorite things – cheesecake! Not only is this treat delicious, it’s easy to make and it will leave your oven free for the rest of your holiday feast!
These tasty bites are great to bring to a holiday party (add a splash of Brandy to the mix if you’re headed to an adult only party). Stop into Fancy That to pick up a pack of our awesome metallic baking cups! Presentation is everything at a holiday party and these cups will add a real wow factor to any table. We’ve got them in red, silver and gold.

Mini Eggnog Cheesecakes
1.5 packs graham crackers
1 stick melted butter
2 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2.5 8 oz packs cream cheese (room temperature)
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup eggnog
1/4 – 1/2 cup Brandy (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Whipping cream + sugar to taste
For the crust: crush graham crackers into very fine crumbs – I used the food processor, but you could put them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Stir in cinnamon, sugar and then the butter.For the filling: Using a mixer and a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add in sweetened condensed milk, then the eggnog and then the Brandy (if using). Toss in the cinnamon and nutmeg.
Line up your metallic baking cups and fill each about 1/2 way with cheesecake mixture, then add 1/2 tablespoon of graham cracker mixture to each cup, top the with more cheesecake. To finish add a dollop of whip cream to the top and sprinkle with any leftover graham cracker crumbs.
Chill the cups in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.
Note: this is not a firm cheesecake, it will be fairly soft.
What’s your favorite Holiday dessert?
Happy no-baking!

Hello Fall Gift

I will be the first to admit that summer is my favorite season of the year.  If it wasn’t for all the cute fall decorations and super yummy pumpkin-flavored things, I would seriously go into fall kicking and screaming.  So, this year when fall reared its head yet again, I needed my pumpkin fix quick!  And, just like magic our latest shipment from Seattle Chocolates arrived with their seasonal truffle flavor, Pumpkin Spice.  Ahh, I was seriously giddy!  I quickly scooped up a handful of truffles along with our new ‘eek’ air filled balloon, and a chai tea candle.  Before I knew it, I was enjoying all my favorite things about fall – cute decor, delicious pumpkin goodies and my favorite smells – and reminded that each season has its highlights.        


Happy Fall!


DIY Pumpkin Centerpiece


DIY Pumpkin Honeycomb | Fancy That

These little pumpkin cuties look scary cute as a centerpiece on any table.

Supplies needed:

  1. While keeping the honeycomb closed cut a straight line across the bottom through all layers of the honeycomb. This will enable the pumpkin to sit properly on the table.
  2. Once the honeycomb is cut, open it up and hold together with paper clips.
  3. Cut out a simple stem and two thin strips out of your card stock.
  4. Glue the stem to the inside of the top of the honeycomb.
  5. Curl the two stem strips by using scissors like you would curl ribbon. Be careful not to rip the stem strips.
  6. Now glue the curly strips along side of the stem.

Repeat as many times as you would like!  Cute and easy, right?

Happy crafting!
