Fall Snack With A Quick Craft

If you have checked out my "About Me" section, you know that I am a Mom of three boys (two teenagers, and one 21 year old).  They are ALWAYS hungry!!!!  This last weekend, my 21 year old was coming home from college for the weekend, and the teenagers, well, they eat all the time.  So, I like to have plenty of snacks available for them.  I quickly whipped up this Fall themed snack. 

When I say this is easy, it's over the top easy!!

I used a large pre-mixed bag of trail mix
(the trail mix I used had M&Ms, almonds, raisins, cashews, and peanuts)
2 bags of Candy Corn
If you can't find a trail mix with those ingredients, you could buy them separately, and mix it that way.

Dump them in a large mixing bowl, and toss.  DONE & DONE!

Next, comes the Super Quick Craft part.  Since this was so pretty, I wanted to have it out and visible.  So, I took a glass container I already had, and wasn't using.  But, I wanted to jazz it up a bit. 
So, I removed the knob that came with the glass container.
(please ignore the spray paint on my nails, I've been busy, hahaha!)
Next, I replaced the "stock" knob with a pretty glass knob
That's It! 
Two quick and easy things, that go so well together!!!!

Thank You for stopping by!

P.S. My boys think it tastes like a PayDay
Also, it goes well with Pumpkin Spice Coffee (not that I'm having it for breakfast or anything)

    Your Fall porch is wonderful, too!

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment Donna! Yes, my boys will eat anything that isn't green (if you know what I mean). Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. What a good idea and I love that you changed out the knob. Very cute!
