Popcorn Box Challenge – Easy Fall Decor

Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email

I’m so excited to be joining the Popcorn Box Blog Hop this year!  The amazing Laura Kelly sent over 50 popcorn boxes to blogger to see how they could work these boxes into a project.  So fun, right?  Such a fun way to see how lots of people use the same box and create tons of different uses for it.  I used my box to create this simple fall decoration.

Fall Colors

I love that you can’t even tell that my fall floral arrangement vase is made from a popcorn box!  Crazy, right?  Here is how I did it.

First, gather some supplies.  My popcorn box, styrofoam, burlap, fall flowers.  I also used my glue gun, some spray paint, and moss.

Then, spray your popcorn box tan or any color to match your embellishments.  It doesn’t need to be thick, just enough to hide the red.

Next I filled the box with styrofoam and embellished the outside of my box with burlap.  You really could use anything to embellish – paper, felt, ribbon, or fabric.  I love burlap right now and love that it comes in a lot of fall colors!

Arrange your flowers into your box pushing them into the styrofoam.

To help hide the foam inside the box, add a little moss on top.  This just gives it a nice finishing touch!

Look how fun it turned out!  Who knew you could make something so cute using a popcorn box?  This really way an easy way to add to my fall decor stash.

Bits of Everything

It adds the perfect Fall touch to my table in my entryway.  I also love this chevron table runner.  I think it’s my favorite table runner I’ve ever made!

Caramel Apple Cookies

Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email

I have fallen in love with Caramel Apples all over again this fall, and these Caramel Apple Cookies might be the reason.  You have to try them!  They are amazing!


Before you can make these delicous cookies, you’ll need to go to the store to pick up one bag of Caramels, and one box of Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Drink Mix.  (You can find the drink mix by the hot chocolate mixes at your grocery store.)


Then you’re ready to go!


3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 box Apple Cider Drink Mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 bag of Caramels (at least 11 ounces)


Pour measured flour into a bowl and stir in the baking soda, baking power, and cinnamon.  Set aside.

Mix softened butter, sugar, salt, and all ten drink packets together until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well after each addition.  Gradually add flour mixture, and mix until just combined.

Place dough in the refrigerator for about an hour.

When you are ready to bake them, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line your cookie sheets with wax or parchment paper.  Unwrap the caramels.  Scoop about a tablespoon of dough into your hand (I use a small ice cream scoop!) and flatten the dough in your palm.  Place one caramel on the dough and wrap the dough around it, covering the caramel completely.  Roll between your palms to form a ball.  Place at least two inches apart on your covered cookie sheets.


Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until light brown around the edges.  After you remove them from the oven, gently pull the wax paper off the cookie sheet onto the counter for the cookies to cool.  After they cool about ten minutes (when they are firm, but still warm) gently twist each cookie off the wax paper.  Turn each cookie upside down to finish cooling.

After they are all done, store them in an air-tight container.

When you are ready to eat one, place your cookie in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.  Then enjoy your delicious, warm, Caramel Apple Cookie.


These are by far the best cookies I have eaten in years.  I’m sure you’ll love them too!

2 small chicken breasts, cut into small cubes or shredded
