Thirsty Thursday and Bonus Craft: Sunday is Oscar Night!

With Oscars this Sunday, here are a few cool things we saw on The Chew this week that could make your festivities more fun:

To serve treats, consider making these super simple snack bowls (no wet stuff, but great for popcorn and pretzels). A nod to Clinton again for this idea:

Ticket Bowls

What You’ll Need:

-Roll of tickets – can buy at any party or office supply store for about $4
-Decoupage glue
-Foam brush or paint brush
How to Make It:

1. Mold roll of tickets over a bowl.  You can mix and match colors if you want

2. Apply decoupage glue to the outside and inside.

3. Glue tickets over the hole on the bottom to seal.

4. Fill with your favorite party snacks and voila!
