Homemade Bracelets out of Shoelaces and Pepperoni Pizza!

I'm hooking up with My Frugal Family for Talented Tuesday! Be sure and check out all the other projects!

I found this great tutorial on Obsessively Stitching a while back for these super cute, super easy bracelets! They're made out of shoe laces from Dollar Tree! Yup, $1 made 5 bracelets! I made them for Sloan, and she gave one to a friend and I still have the other shoe lace left to make more! You just need a little bit of elastic and some rhinestones. I couldn't find the rhinestones at the Dollar Tree the day I was there, but they did have silver metallic puffy paint in a package with some other colors, so I just bought that. It gives it some sparkle and it's easy. I just put it on the shoe lace the night before and let it dry overnight.

Pepperoni Pizza Crust

1 cup hot, but not super hot, water
1 tablespoon yeast
2-3 cups flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt


1 small can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 package pepperoni, we like the Kroger brand
3-4 cups mozzarella cheese

For crust

In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, place the hot water. Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add 1 cup of flour and the salt and mix, adding more flour to make a soft dough that just pulls away from the sides of the mixer. Knead for 5 minutes. Put in a greased bowl and cover with a towel and let sit for about 20 minutes.

Heat oven to 425 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with Pam. Work dough out onto cookie sheet with your hands.

Mix the tomato sauce with the seasonings and spread half of it onto the pizza dough, cover with pepperoni and cheese. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until it starts to brown.
