Our Pin the Halls Pinterest Contest Winner (Plus some Holiday Party Pinspiration!)

We've been singing carols and craving Christmas cookies since our Pin the Halls Pinterest Contest launched last month. We received just around 100 entries, so picking the winner wasn't easy. Along the way, we discovered some great recipes, DIY ideas, and tips for planning the perfect holiday party. We couldn't stand the thought of all this knowledge going the way of the fruitcake (i.e. not getting eaten up), so before we get to the grand prize winner, we're happy to share these holiday honorable mentions.

A Humongous Pinterest Collection of Candy Art

One of the heartbreaks of adult life is not being able to go trick-or-treating. Sure, you can go door to door on Halloween night, but only with children, and you have to let them have all the candy. Boo! One of the joys of adult life, on the other hand, is art. Fine art, crafts, paintings, photos, street art, whatever. It's all good. And it's especially sweet when it's art about...CANDY!
