When you decide to pick the PEANUTS movie for family movie night, you can’t help but go that extra mile to make some PEANUTS movie inspired treats especially when your friends over at Fox Home Entertainment send you some fun goodies to add character to the evening.
And when you had OREO cupcakes from your daughter’s birthday celebration the previous day, you can’t help but not pay tribute to the world’s most adorable dog, Snoopy with Snoopy’s OREO Cupcakes.
These cupcakes taste so good and decorating them with paw prints is ever so easy.

So easy, right?
If you’re not confident about baking cupcakes from scratch, get a box of white cake mix and add the 2 cups of crushed OREOs to the same, to make your own OREO cupcakes.
Take Charlie Brown’s example and just make it work!
Talking about making it work, we were sent these adorable Charlie Brown t-shirts that were way too big for the kids. We took inspiration from this video I shared on my Facebook page, earlier this week, that shows how you can turn old t-shirts into totes.
So that became our movie night project.
Here’s how to make your own DIY No Sew Charlie Brown Tote
- Cut the sleeves to form your tote’s handles and the collar area to make a wider mouth for your tote. Then cut 1.5-2 inch strips long enough to allow you to tie 3 sets of knots.
- Now turn your shirt inside out and tie the opposite ends of the strips twice. Once done tie adjacent strips once.
- That’s it. Turn your bag the right way around and there you have it. A practical new sew tote!
