It’s holiday party season people! And what says holiday spirit more than Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffing Jalapeno Poppers?!
That’s right, I added stuffing to Jalapeno Poppers!
The original idea came after Thanksgiving when I still had Thanksgiving leftover recipe ideas on my mind, but then as my annual holiday party came closer last weekend, I started to think that they would be the perfect appetizer for my party.

Last week I had the pleasure of working with Photographer, Drew Casey, for the first time. A fellow Okie with several mutual friends it was the perfect match for the Little Leopard Book holiday shoot!
I love the holidays, decorating for them, cooking for them and most of all… throwing parties for them!
I wanted to take pictures that incorporated all of the above to show my little leopard holiday spirit across the blog and around the LLB social media universe! Thanks to Drew for helping me accomplish just that!

These holiday ornaments are so simple to make, they are a great way to show your team spirit at the holidays and get a little crafty while you’re at it!
Because of the simplicity (and lack of messy products), these are perfect to make with kids of any age. They will love having their own special ornament to put on the tree while showing off their favorite team colors!
I made two different ornaments for my two favorite teams, the Oklahoma Sooners and the OKC Thunder!
- Clear plastic ornament balls – $.49 (each)
- Colored pom-pom Balls – 15 for $1.69
- Colored small glass gems – small bag for $2.79
- Basketball (baseball or football) beads – small bag for $3.99
- Small Foam Letter Stickers – $2.99
- Small Foam Star Stickers – $1.49
1. Begin to fill the ornament with the glass gems or pom-pom balls.
2. For the pom-pom ball ornament, I layered the two different colors top/middle/bottom.
For the glass gems and basketballs, I began with one color, added the basketball beads in the middle, then added the other color on top.
3. Place the top back onto the ornament, then add the letters and stars!
Voila! 3 simples steps and your custom team ornaments are on the tree!
The great thing about these ornaments is the colors and letters can be completely customized to match middle school, high school or college colors, as well as NFL, NBA or MLB!
Happy Holidays, Thunder Up and Boomer Sooner, from the Little Leopard family to yours!
