RED ZINGER TEA
My friends and I have served Red Zinger Tea at a multitude of functions. It is so refreshing and the prettiest pink color. To make:
1 liter Sprite/7UP/ or store brand lemon lime drink.
5 Red Zinger Tea bags.
Directions: empty out just a little of the drink. Insert 5 tea bags individually. Place in refrigerator overnight. Pour into a pretty pitcher and serve.
MUSIC SHEET WREATH
75 double sided sheets of music
1 white Styrofoam wreath form (mine was about 9 inches in diameter)
2 Floral Picks
Paint (the color of your choice)
Fold the sheets into cones and hot glue until the cones remains. Once all of the cones are made you may begin to glue onto the Styrofoam. I placed a small cup in the middle of the wreath form so that I would achieve a nice round shape.
I glued at Noon, 3, 6 and 9 first and then began to fill in. Complete one row all the way around. Some of the wreath form will be showing at this point. Continue with a partial second row with the cones strategically placed to cover the wreath form.
Tie the wires of the 2 floral picks together to form a hanger for the wreath.. Insert the pointed side of each pick into the top of the wreath form.
Tie a ribbon on the wires if desired.
Paint a wooden initial and hot glue to middle of wreath.
Hang and enjoy!
