Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree

This is a great make ahead treat for
Christmas morning.
So Easy:
*I use two tubes of Pillsbury Cinnabon Cinnamon
rolls.
*After opening, I arrange the rolls in a tree shape*
*Bake according to package directions, frost with
the provided glaze.
*Add a cherry to the top of each cinnamon roll
(I prefer to use green cherries on the tree and a red
one on the top, but the store did not have green cherries
this time)

OK, this is a crazy idea but it really works.  I LOVE this sauce.  It comes out much better than store bought.  I gave these for last minute gifts in a basket with apples for dipping.  Yummmmm!  Thanks to This Crazy Life for sharing:

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Looking back through this old Christmas Window is charming.


This DIY Christmas window is easy:
*Just remove any old glass in an old window
*Wire brush any old paint off
*Staple a length of artificial garland to the bottom        corner and add some berries and twigs. You can't see in the photo, but I added lights too so it looks really good at night.
* For the doily swag, I stenciled letters on fabric doilies, folded the top back and glued a pocket to slide the ribbon through.  Swag it and attach to the back of the window with tacks so it can be removed or changed whenever you like.

This window looks great all the way through winter!
