You guys, I made a Christmas craft! I’ve been spending all my time baking these days so I wasn’t sure I’d get this done! And I even love the way it turned out! I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest so I went ahead and created my own version.
This is one of those projects that make me wonder why I left it until the last minute. It was so easy. The hardest part was hunting down the fake snow (which I found at Walmart)
Here’s what you need to make these Wine Glass Snow Globes:
Wine glasses (dollar store)
Little trees and/or figurines
Cardboard (I used a cereal box)
First of all, you’ll want to place a glass upside down onto cardboard and trace a circle around the glass.
Using a hot glue gun, attached your objects to the cardboard. (I used trees and a snowman from Michaels)
Once you’re satisfied that your objects are glued down well, fill glass with a few tablespoons of fake snow or glitter.
Next, line the rim of the glass with hot glue and press on cardboard with the objects attached.
Finally, flip them over, then place them where you want to display them, then put a pillar candle on top!
Hope you enjoy this idea! This is the first time I’ve created decor for Christmas!
I thought you guys would like to see what my mom made for a few of her girlfriends for Christmas this year! They’re Holiday Simmering Packages! They’ll make any home smell wonderful, just like Christmas! (They’re not meant for drinking, but for simmering on the stove.) I think I’m even going to make up a few for my girlfriends!
For her recipe, my mom used her dehydrator to dry the oranges, lemons and apples, but you could also dry them in your oven or just use fresh peels!
These simple to make Hot Chocolate Ornaments are the perfect addition to any gift! Add one along with a mug and some extra hot chocolate. Or tie one to a gift bag. Or maybe you could add it to the tree at a party for the hostess to find at some point. The options are endless really.
Just as the gifting options are endless with these ornaments, there are also many ways to put these together.
This is what I used to make these particular hot chocolate ornaments:
After a hectic day, there is nothing as soothing as a long soak in the bath tub. Adding bath salts not only adds to the relaxing nature of baths by making the water smell delicious but by providing healing and soothing aspects to your skin!
Why not try this simple recipe for homemade bath salts to give away to the bath takers on your gift list! I’m sure they’ll love it!
Let the bath salts dry overnight before adding to your jars.
If you want more than one scent, separate the salts into more than one bowl before adding the oils.
For my particular bath salts, I made one jar lavender scent and the other peppermint. The decorative jars I picked up at a local dollar store. As for the tags, I made them using a couple of paper punches my mom and I have in our craft supplies.
Let’s make Homemade Vanilla Bath Bombs! These are so simple and fun to make. They make fantastic gifts too! Recently we attended a birthday party for a new four year old and she loved that she could use them in her bath that evening. 🙂 The other thing I love about this DIY is that you can customize the scent to the person you’re gifting it to. Maybe the recipient would prefer peppermint or lavender or even eucalyptus scented bath bombs. Simply replace the vanilla essential oil with the oil of your choice.
So, you’ll have to excuse the width of this video since I learned the hard way that I shouldn’t film with the camera sideways! And I’m also a bit nervous posting this video since this is my first one and I wasn’t quite sure how to do one! It can only get better and easier, right? 🙂 Here’s the break down of costs:
Gingerbread cookie mix from The Superstore: $2
Reindeer Christmas tree ornament from The Superstore: $3 for a pack of three
