Cleaning out the kitchen cabinets is never a very fun chore, until you find a jar of old sprinkles. And then you realize that although they may be a little old (do sprinkles have an expiration?), you have another idea for them completely – crafts!
I knew right away when I found the large jar of colorful goodness that I wanted to get crafting with sprinkles, but I needed a little inspiration to guide me.
I found a bunch of projects and am not sure where to start, but I think it’s going to be a fashion item. Maybe something for parties? There are so many options, which is really fun.
