Veterans Day is Saturday, November 11th and if you're heading to any celebrations like the ones listed here, I found two unique ways you can honor our incredible veterans.

During our weekly Nailed It Or Failed It segment on WQAD News 8 at 11am, I showed Jon and Eric how to make these Paper Poppies from the blog, Pumpkin Patch. These are so simple and a great craft to do with the kiddos. All you need are red cupcake liners, a black marker, a straw, and glue! Check out how we did by clicking the video above.

Did you know that poppies are known as the international symbol of remembrance for veterans? I found this poem and wanted to share it with you:

The other craft we attempted to NAIL today was these Camouflage Cupcakes from the blog, Crafty Mama. I have to be honest here. I really thought these would be a FAIL, but they weren't! They turned out really, really cool - try them with white cupcake liners or no cupcake liners at all. You'll get the same cool effect. Watch how we did it below:

Happy Veterans Day!
