Marshmallow Snowmen

Everyone loves a Snowman right? These little Snowmen will brighten up anything!


-large marshmallows $.96
-Halloween sprinkles- on hand
- toothpicks- on hand

Total cost $.96 +

First put 4 toothpicks in a cup of water

Take 3 marshmallows, smoosh on down. This will be the head.
Push one toothpick through the bottom marshmallow into the middle marshmallow.
Next push one through the head into the middle marshmallow.
Beginning of Snowman!

Put the tip of a toothpick in the water. *This sounds weird, but seriously it makes the toothpick glide in the marshmallow so nicely! *
Start poking holes for eyes, nose and mouth. Pick out your sprinkles. The Halloween ones are perfect; orange and black!
Slide the sprinkles in the holes you prepared.
*Don't use your fingernail to push them in, it makes the sprinkle crack and then you get sprinkle dust all over the water that you just put on the marshmallow when you poked the holes, BIG mess :)*

Continue down with buttons.

Finished Snowmen! Aren't they just adorable!! If you fell the need you could use a jr mint, or something along those lines for a hat. Check back later in the week to see what I plan on using my cute little men for!


  1. you know... these would look great on my prim tree I have going with cookies! :)

    I got it at Hobby Lobby. Wish I had the extra cash now because they have them 1/2 off. I just noticed that in your post about Turkey Leftovers... I have the exact same salt and pepper shaker!

    Stay Warm,

  2. I think they would look great on your tree! I will have to check hobby lobby when we go to logan. about 2 hours away, but our closest hobby lobby... sad I know! Thanks!!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
