Rainbow Zebra Print Soap RecipeRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe

If you are looking for a fun recipe for soap without lye, then check out the latest soap creation from Natures Garden! The Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe is a fun way to create your very own soap using a great melt and pour base. Our design was inspired by the beauty of wild zebras. Did you know that each zebra’s stripes are as unique as your fingerprint? This means that no two zebras will have the same pattern. So, we used the unique design of the stripes and made it even wilder by using a rainbow of different colors. This will leave you with bars of soap that are fun and beautiful.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Ingredients Available From Natures Garden

Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base
Teal FUN Soap Colorant 
Neon Blue Soap Colorant
Yelp Yellow Soap Colorant 
Neon Pink Soap Colorant
Square Loaf – Mold Market Molds
Amazingly Grace Fragrance Oil
8oz Blue PET Bullet Bottles
Black Fine Mist Sprayers 24/410
Mitre Box – Stainless Steel
Cutter For Mitre Box – Stainless Steel

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Other Equipment Needed

A few Mixing Bowls (5)
Scale (grams)
Rubbing Alcohol
Mixing Spoon
Block (or another object to slide under the mold)

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Total Weights and Amounts

1408 grams of the Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base
5 drops of the Yelp Yellow Soap Colorant
6 drops of the Teal FUN Soap Colorant
5 drops of the Neon Blue Soap Colorant
68 grams of the Amazingly Grace Fragrance Oil
5 drops of the Neon Pink Soap Colorant

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Preparing Your Craft Area

Before you begin creating your recipe there are a few things that you can do to make the process easier and more fun. First, you will want to collect your equipment for this recipe. This way you won’t have your melted soap set up while you look for supplies. While this won’t ruin your recipe, it can become frustrating. Further, you want to make sure your supplies and work area are clean. This will make sure that dirt or crumbs from other projects don’t make their way into your recipe. Also, you can fill up your bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a sprayer on top. This will ensure that you will have this ready to use before your layers set up.  Also, decide what order you want to pour your layers.  We created this soap a few times, varying the order of the colors.  You can choose to pour your colors in any order.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Weighing and Scenting the First LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Weighing and Scenting the First Layer

First, you are going to prepare the bottom layer of your soap loaf. So, weigh 152 grams of the Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base into your mixing bowl. Melt the soap thoroughly using 30 second intervals and stir between heating to prevent scorching. Next, weigh 7 grams of the Amazingly Grace Fragrance Oil. Mix this into your soap base. Now, you are ready to pour.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Pouring the First LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Pouring the First Layer

Next, we are going to pour this first layer into our square loaf mold. So, you are going to need to prop up one side. We used a small block of wood, but you can use anything you can find to raise one side of the mold. Creating this angle will allow us to make stripes that better resemble a zebra pattern. Once your layer has been poured remember to spray the top with the rubbing alcohol. This will release any bubbles and allow your layers to stick together.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Making the Yellow Layer

Now, we are ready to create our yellow layer for this soap. So, weigh 200 grams of the mp soap base into a clean mixing bowl. Use a microwave in short bursts to melt the soap and mix between heating. After, add 10 grams of the fragrance oil. Plus, you will add 5 drops of the Yelp Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. Make sure to incorporate this your soaps well enough that your color is even. Then, you can get ready to pour.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Pouring the Second LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Pouring the Second Layer

For this step, we are going to be pouring the second layer into the soap mold. First, we need to make sure that the previous layer has set up almost completely. The timing is very important with this recipe.  You want the soap to form a pretty thick film.  However, you don’t want it to be completely hardened.  If it still has some flexibility when you pour your next layer, the line will be more wavy like a zebra instead of sharp and angled.  Once you are sure you are ready to pour, you will need to take your mold off the block and set it flat. Since our last layer was already at an angle, this layer will fill in the spaces. Once you have added all of this layer, lightly spray the top with the rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating the Next LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating the Next Layer to Pour

Now, we are going to make our second white layer for this recipe. So, weigh 152 grams of the soap base into a mixing bowl. Carefully melt the mp soap in a microwave. Then, add 7 grams of the fragrance oil to the mixture. Combine these ingredients thoroughly before you move on to pouring the mixture.

Next, we will get ready to pour this layer. So, check your yellow soap layer and see whether it has set up. Since these layers are fairly thin, they shouldn’t take too long to set up. When your soap is ready you can leave the mold flat and begin to pour. After, you will need to lightly spray the top of this layer with the alcohol.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating the Teal LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating the Teal Layer

Next, we are going to be making the teal colored layer for our homemade soap. After you measure 200 grams of soap base, melt the soap using a microwave. Remember to use short bursts and periodically stir. Once your soap is melted add 10 grams of the scented oil and 6 drops of the Teal FUN Soap Colorant. Mix all of your ingredients together well. Then, we can move on to creating this next part of the design.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating a Forked Layer

This part of the soap will be slightly different than the other layers. We are going to create a forked layer with our teal mixture. First, you will need to pour about half of your teal soap into the mold. For this part, your mold will remain flat on the table. Then, spray the layer with alcohol and allow the soap to set up.

Once your teal layer has set up completely you are ready to add the white portion of the fork. First, you are going to need to tilt your mold. We used two of our blocks to create a bigger tilt and make sure that the white layer was only on one side of the mold. Depending on what you have used to angle your mold, you may need to play with your height a bit before you are ready to pour. Melt 150 grams of the yogurt soap and add 7 grams of the Amazingly Grace Fragrance Oil. Once you have added this white layer you can spray the top with rubbing alcohol. Make sure to leave the soap mold angle the same way until you pour your next layer.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Other Half of the Teal MixtureRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Other Half of the Teal Mixture

Next, we are going to be finishing the forked layer with the rest of our teal colored soap. So, make sure that the white soap has set up. Then, you can melt the teal soap again. Once your soap has melted you will pour the teal soap into the mold at the same angle as your previous white layer. After, you can spray the tops with rubbing alcohol. Now, this will leave you with a forked appearance for this stripe.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Next White LayerRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Next White Layer

Now, we are ready to create our next layer for this soap. So, melt 150 grams of the melt and pour soap in the microwave. After, you will need to include 7 grams of the fragrance oil and mix the ingredient well. Once everything is ready to pour, check that your last layer has mostly set up. If it has, then you can start pouring this layer.

First, you will need to get rid of the angle. So, you can set the mold down flat on your work surface. Now, you will pour this scented white soap on top of your hardened teal layer. Once everything has been added you can spray the top with rubbing alcohol. Then, move on to creating the next layer.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Blue and White LayersRainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Adding the Neon Blue and White Layers

This time you will be mixing up the neon blue layer for our recipe. So, carefully melt another 200 grams of soap into a clean mixing bowl. Once your soap is all melted you will need to add 10 grams of the fragrance oil along with 5 drops of the Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. Make sure to mix these ingredients thoroughly. Once the previous layer has completely set up you can add the blue layer on top. Then, spray the top of this layer with the rubbing alcohol.

Now, you will be mixing the next layer for your zebra soap recipe. You will need to melt 150 grams of the Melt and Pour Soap Base in the microwave. Once your soap has been completely melted, you can add 7 grams of the scented oil. Mix this ingredient into the soap. After the blue layer has completely set up you are ready to pour in this next layer. Remember to spray the top with alcohol before moving on to the next step.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Creating and Pouring the Pink Layer

You will need to create the pink soap for this next layer. So, melt 200 grams of the yogurt mp soap.  Then, 10 grams of the fragrance to your melted soap. Also, mix in 5 drops of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. After all this is mixed together, check that your previous layer has set up completely. Once it has you can move on to the next step.

Next, we are going to be pouring the pink layer onto your soap. This next layer will be slightly angled. You can use a similar height to the yellow layer and add the wedge to the opposite side as before. As soon as you get your desired angle, pour in this pink mixture. Then, spray the top with rubbing alcohol.

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Mixing and Adding the Top Layer

Finally, we are going to be adding the last layer for the zebra print soap. You will need to melt 150 grams of the soap in a microwave. Then, incorporate 7 grams of the fragrance oil. Once everything has mixed together you should check to make sure that the pink layer has set up completely. If it has, then remove the object from underneath the mold and pour your soap. After the soap is in the mold, spray the soap to release any air bubbles. Now, you just need to wait for your last layer to set up and you will be ready to cut and use your soap!

Rainbow Zebra Print Soap Recipe: Interesting Facts

Zebras are such majestic animals, but their beautiful stripes are just for looks. There are quite a few ideas as to how these unique patterns are beneficial. Firstly, the zebras are able to use each of their unique patterns in a group to confuse predators. Since these stripes help the zebras blend into their herd, they will even circle around young animals to create a defensive barrier. But, there are quite a few more reasons why this pattern is so important. If you would like to learn a bit more, then you should go to the article Plains Zebra by National Geographic

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Supplies and Work

This will ensure that you have plenty of room to work. Also, you should have all your equipment is clean and ready to use. Just a simple wash will help to prevent dust or dirt from getting into your recipe. Further, it may help to have all of your equipment and supplies nearby. This will make it easier to create your craft, as you won’t have to go far to find what you need.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Dry Ingredients Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to need to measure all of the dry ingredients for this recipe. You will need a large mixing bowl and a gram scale. Then, weigh 460 grams of baking soda, 410 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, 224 grams cream of tartar, and 72 grams of corn starch. After all your ingredients have been added you will need to mix it all together. Also, you should try to break up any clumps.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you are going to combine all of the wet ingredients for this bubble bars. You will need to add these to your large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. You can either weigh these ingredients into a separate bowl first or weigh everything directly into the mixing bowl. So, you will need to add 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the safflower oil, and 14 grams of the Rain Fragrance Oil to the mixture.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything TogetherRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Now that both wet and dry ingredients are included, you can begin mixing your dough. You will need to make sure that you break up any clumps and continue until you have the right consistency. If you don’t get a doughy consistency after mixing everything together well, then you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. You can tell that you need more when the dough is crumbly. However, you want to be careful not to add too much, as it will not set up properly when it is too wet.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

After everything has been mixed together you are going to separate the batch into five equal portions. You can eyeball the amounts, but you should have about 280 grams of the dough in each of the five mixing bowls.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Red Colored PortionRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Red Colored Portion

Now that your dough has been separated you can grab one of these portions to color. So, you will need to add 10 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant along with 5 drops of the Neon Red FUN Soap Colorant. After both of these colorants have been added you will need to use your gloved hands to mix the color in evenly. After you have a bright red hue throughout this portion you can roll it into a ball and set it aside for now.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding Orange ColorantRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding Orange Colorant

Next, we are going to create the orange portion of this recipe. So, grab one of the unused mixing bowls to add 10 drops of the Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant. Then, you will need to use gloved hands to fully incorporate the soap colorant. After all the color is evenly distributed roll the dough into a ball and set this portion aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Yellow Portion

Now, we are going to mix up the yellow portion of this recipe. Grab one of the uncolored portions of the bubble bar. Then, you will need to add 5 drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. You will need to mix the color into the batch until it is evenly distributed throughout the entire portion. Then, you can roll up the yellow dough and set it aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Green PortionRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Green Portion

Then, we will need to mix the green portion of the batch. So, retrieve one of the two remaining uncolored portions. You need to add 5 drops of the Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant to the bowl. After you add your colorant to the batch, you will need to mix everything together. So, use your gloved hand to evenly disperse the color. Once you are finished, you can roll this into a ball and set it aside for now.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Purple Colorant Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Purple Colorant

Finally, we are going to create the purple portion of our bubble bar. So, grab your last uncolored portion of the recipe. You will add 5 drops of the Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant. Now, mix the colorant into the batter using your gloved hands. Once the color is even in the dough you can roll it into a ball and set aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Getting Ready to Roll ColorsRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Getting Ready to Roll Colors

Now that are the layers are colored we are going to need to get ready to roll everything. You will either need a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. Next, lightly dust the mat or paper with some baking soda. This will help keep your bubble bar from sticking as you pick up and roll the layers.  You also should dust your rolling pin with baking soda so the dough doesn’t stick to that either.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling Out the First Layer Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling Out the First Layer

Just like a real rainbow, we are going to have the red on the outside. So, grab your ball of red dough from its bowl. You can set this dough ball in the center of your sheet or mat. Then, roll the ball into a flat, rectangle shape.  Also, make sure that you leave this layer about a quarter inch thick. Remember that as you add more layers this initial layer will continue to get thinner.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Laying Down the Orange LayerRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Laying Down the Orange Layer

Next, we are going to add the orange layer to the bubble bar. So, take your rolled up orange ball of dough. Place this orange ball right on top of the previous layer. Roll the orange layer to match the shape of the red layer. You don’t need to be exact, but make sure that you have a similar shape and are near the edges.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Yellow Layer Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Yellow Layer

Now, you are going to create the yellow layer of your bubble bar. You will need to take the rolled up yellow portion and place it on the orange layer. As you can see, we didn’t have a rolling pin available and got creative. You can use a rolling pin effectively, but we used our 16 oz bottle of Safflower Oil to roll our dough. Either way, you will need to roll the yellow similarly to the previous layers.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Green Layer

Then, you will be ready to create the green layer for your bubble bar recipe. You will need to take the green ball of dough and add it to the center of your yellow layer. Now, you will need to roll out this green layer until it is about the same shape and nearly at the edges.

 

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Final Layer

Finally, you are going to add your purple layer to your bubble bar. So, place your ball of purple to the center of the previous layer. You will need to roll out this layer similarly to the other layers. While blue would’ve gone between the green and purple layers, we were worried about adding too many layers. Since every added layer will make the layers beneath it thinner, we didn’t want stretch the layers too thin. If you would like you can try to include this layer, but you are going to need to be super careful with rolling your layers.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Wrapping Up the Bubble BarRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Wrapping Up the Bubble Bar

Now that all your layers are added, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. So, turn your layers so that the mat or paper is vertical. Then, take the edge that is closest to you and slowly roll the dough the same way that you would wrap up a jelly roll. Be careful to roll the dough evenly as you go to make sure that it is lined up.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing Your Finished ProductRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing Your Finished Product

Lastly, you will need to slice your bubble bar loaf into individual bars. You will want each one to be somewhere between 1 and 2 inches thick. So, you should end up with about 8 slices. But this can vary slightly depending on the thickness of your slices. After all of your loaf has been sliced you will need to let the bubble bars set up. Simply separate the slices a bit and let them sit in one place for some time. This process can take between 48 and 72 hours. This time will vary based on your climate, but you will be able to tell that your batch has completely set up because they will become hard.

Once your bubble bars have set up they will be ready to use! All you have to do is crumble one under some warm, running bath water. Then, you will be all set for a fun rainbow bath.

According to the National Day Calendar, National Find A Rainbow Day is on April 3rd every year.  Even though I am always so happy to find a bright, beautiful rainbow up in the sky, I didn’t know there was a national day for finding them. They are such a beautiful sight with all the lovely colors and grandness of the size. So, I hope I can find one this year. But, even if we can’t find one this year at least we will still have this bubbly rainbow recipe!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Your Work Space

Before you start, we would like to suggest that you make a few preparations. A pair of gloves is recommended, as you will need to mix with your hands. An apron may be useful to protect your clothing.  Also, a hair net and face mask are recommended. Second, you are going to want to prepare all your ingredients and supplies for this recipe. This will ensure that the project runs smoothly and you have all the materials that you need. Finally, you should clean your work space and equipment to make sure that your recipe will be clean and free of dirt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Dry Ingredients

First, we are going to combine all of your dry ingredients into one of your mixing bowls. So, get a medium or large mixing bowl ready. Also, you will need a gram scale in order to measure these ingredients. Then, to your bow,l weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda, 410 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 224 grams of the Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of the Corn Starch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Next, you are going to mix these previously measured ingredients together. You will need to make sure that these dry ingredients are mixed together well before moving on to the next step. Also, make sure you break up any clumps in the powders. This will ensure that each essential ingredient is evenly dispersed and clump-free throughout your entire batch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Now, you are going to weigh your wet ingredients. You can do this part of the recipe one of two ways. You could weigh your ingredients into a small bowl and transfer them into your large mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Alternatively, you can measure the wet ingredients into the same mixing bowl as your dry ingredients. Either way you will need to measure out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the rice bran oil, and 14 grams of the Spring Rain Fragrance Oil.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now that both your wet and dry ingredients have been measured into your large mixing bowl you are ready to mix. Use your clean, gloved hands to mix together all of your ingredients. It is important that you mix these together well because you will be dividing the dough into portions. So, you will want to make sure that each portion has about the same amount of the ingredients.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Batch

Next, you are going to be separating your mixed bubble bar dough into two equal portions. So, grab your two other mixing bowls. You will need to put half of your batch into each of the bowls. You can eyeball the amounts or measure them if your would prefer. But, you just need to make sure that there is about half in each bowl.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White Portion

The white portion of your batch is very simple to prepare. The hardest part is making sure that this bowl contains about half of the total dough. After, you have divided up your batch just roll the uncolored bubble bar into a ball. You can leave this white bubble bar dough ball in this bowl until we are ready to roll out the layers. So, you can move on to preparing the other half of this recipe.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finish Preparing the Pink Portion

The second portion of the bubble bar dough is going to a bit more fun. While the first portion of this recipe was left uncolored, this section is going to be made a pretty shade of pink. Plus, this half of the bubble bar dough even uses Himalayan Pink Salt. This will create a pretty pink layer that would be wonderful for a diy salt soak. So, lets get started on creating the fun half of this bubble bar recipe!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now, you are going to prepare the other half of your bubble bar dough. So, take this second half and add in three drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant. This amount is perfect for giving us a pretty shade of pink for this layer of the bubble bar. You will need to use your gloved hands to mix this color into the dough evenly. You will want to want sure that you don’t have any specks of dye left unincorporated. 

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now that this portion is colored, you will need to finish up this half of the batch. First, you are going to add in the Himalayan Pink Salt to your dough. So, weigh out 10 grams of the fine ground pink salt. Make sure that you mix this ingredient into the dough very well. Once all of the fine pink salt has been incorporated you can roll the dough into a ball. Now, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the DoughPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Dough

Next, you are going to be rolling out the dough. Before you start you are going to want to lay down either a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. This will be used to roll our bubble bar once we have made our layers. Then, you will need to sprinkle this mat or paper with a bit of baking soda. This will make sure that your bubble bar is easy to roll and doesn’t stick to your mat or paper.

Our outside layer is going to be the pink portion, so you will need to roll this portion out first. You will need to use a rolling pin to flatten out this bubble bar dough. Try to roll the dough into a rectangular shape. Also, you will want the dough to be about a quarter inch thick.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second LayerPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second Layer

After your first layer has been rolled out, you are ready to flatten out the second layer. So, take your uncolored dough ball and place it right on top of the pink layer. Now, flatten this layer out to match the rectangular shape of the first layer. You will be finished once the layers are about the same thickness and size. But, you don’t need to be exact. The slight imperfections will add to the uniqueness of each bubble bar!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the RollPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Roll

Now that your two layers have been made you are ready to roll your bubble bar loaf. So, turn your parchment paper of silicone mat vertically, as shown to the right. Next, you will lift up the edge that is closest to you. You will need to begin to roll the dough onto itself. This process is similar to how you would wrap a jelly roll or pumpkin roll. You will want to go slowly as you roll and continue until all of the dough has been rolled into the loaf.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble BarPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble Bar

Once the bubble bar loaf has been created, you are ready to start decorating the top of your bath and body product. Part of the decorating will be done with Coarse Ground Himalayan Pink Salt. You will be sprinkling the top of the loaf with the coarse ground pink salt. You should need about 20 grams of this for the top, but you can use more or less as you see fit. Also, you will need you slightly press the sprinkled pink salt into the top of the loaf. Otherwise, the pink salt will be likely to fall off easily and you will lose all of your pretty shades of pink salt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding The Mica Dust

The other ingredient that you will use to decorate is mica dust. This lovely powder is perfect for creating a bath and body product that shimmers and shines. For this recipe you will use both the 24k Gold Mica Pigment and the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment. Liberally sprinkle the top of your loaf with each mica powder. After, use a craft brush to remove any excess mica. Dusting off the mica will make sure that your bars don’t have streaks of gold mica after you slice your bars.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble BarsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble Bars

Now you are ready to slice your bubble bar loaf into pieces! We suggest making each bar somewhere between one inch and two inches. This will make sure you have enough for each bath. Depending on the thickness you choose, you will have about eight individual bubble bars.

Once your slices have been made all you have to do is wait for your bars to set up. Based on how long our bubble bar took, it should take about 48-72 hours, or 2-3 days, for your bubble bars to completely set up. However, this can take longer depending on your climate. You will know that your bars are ready to use when they have hardened.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finished ProductPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finished Product

Finally, the gorgeous Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe is finished. Now you can store them, use them for a luxurious bath, or do what ever you’d like. If you are ready to use this beautiful bath product, then just crumble the bubble bar under some warm, running water. The easiest way to do this is do this is to draw a bath and crumble your bar as the tub is filling up.

Why spend all this time and money if you aren’t going to be glamorous. Using a bit of Safflower Oil is perfect to use between salon visits for bringing your color back to life and adding a gorgeous sheen. Whether you dye your hair or leave it natural, this cosmetic oil makes an amazing addition to your hair care.

Safflower Oil Benefits for Nail GrowthSafflower Oil Benefits for Nail Growth

Everyone wants long, healthy, gorgeous nails, but it can be hard to grow them on your own. Between breaking and just taking so long to grow, it can be easier to get fake nails put on. But, this won’t make your nails stronger. Safflower Oil, on the other hand, is amazing for helping your nails become healthier and grow quicker. Since this cosmetic oil contains quite a bit of nutrients, like vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this is a great oil for rejuvenating our nails. These nutrients will condition the nails to provide a healthy look and feel. But, that’s not all. This cosmetic oil will lead to nail growth, as the oil provides nutrients that nails need to grow.

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Tinsel Fragrance OilScented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Tinsel Fragrance Oil

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Ingredients Needed from Natures Garden

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment NeededScented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment Needed

A Pair of Tennis Shoes
Fine Glitter
Liquid Craft Glue
Foam Brush
Wax paper or Newspaper
Plastic Grocery Bags
Small Glass Bowl
Unscented Hair Spray
Long Ribbon Strands for the Shoe Strings

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Weights and Amounts of Your Ingredients

2 ounces of the Liquid Craft Glue
3-5 mL of the Tinsel Fragrance Oil
2 ounces of the Hair Spray
1 pair of Tennis Shoes
2 long Ribbons

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Preparing the Work Station

Before you begin to create this craft, you may want to prepare your work station. So, lay down either the wax paper or the newspaper on the flat surface of your work area. This will help to protect your surface top from the ingredients you need to make your homemade glitter shoes. Additionally, you should use the plastic grocery bags to protect the inside of the tennis shoes. This will prevent glitter from getting inside your shoes as you are making them.  So, you will need to put these bags into the shoes before you begin working. Also, you should remove the original shoe laces from your tennis shoes. Since we are replacing them with ribbons, you can discard these shoe laces. Now, you are ready to begin to create this homemade craft recipe!

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Choosing Your Glitter

First, you are going to need to decide on the craft glitter that you are going to use to glamorize your tennis shoes. While the color is an important choice for your glitter, the size of the glitter is even more important! We have found that glitter that is finer will stick to your shoes better than chunkier glitter. The chunkier sizes just don’t work quite as well. Since glitter that is on the chunkier side has a tendency to get sticky from the hairspray since there is more surface area for the hairspray to cling to. To be safe, you may need to try out your chosen glitter in a small area and have a back up shimmer that is a bit more fine. Also, we have found that holographic glitter sticks pretty well, too. We used holographic glitter for this project. So, before you start with the glue pick out your type of glitter to create some gorgeous shoes.

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Prepare the Liquid GlueScented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Prepare the Liquid Glue

Next, you are going to need to prepare the liquid glue mixture for this diy glitter craft recipe. Obviously, the first ingredient of this mixture will be liquid craft glue. You can use any kind of craft glue that is liquid and will dry to be clear. While our shoes required about 2 ounces of liquid glue, this amount could possibly differ depending on the size shoes that you needed. If you unsure about the amount, you can start with this amount and create more of the glue mixture as you need it. So, you can add this amount of glue to a small glass bowl and move on to the next step.

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilScented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Now, you are going to create the mixture of liquid glue and fragrance oil. So, you will add the fragrance oil to the liquid craft glue in your glass bowl. The lovely aroma that we will use for this beautifully glittered project is the wonderful Tinsel Fragrance Oil. For this delightful craft recipe, you will need about 2- 4 mL of this scrumptious Christmas scented oil for every 2 ounces of liquid craft glue that is used for the glue mixture. Then, you will need to make sure to thoroughly mix the scented oil into the bowl of liquid glue. Next, you are going to need to use this fragrance and glue mixture to hold the glitter on your shoes.

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Beginning to Add the GlitterScented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Beginning to Add the Glitter

After the liquid craft glue and fragrance has been mix up, you are going to be ready to start the process of adding glitter to each of your shoes. Now, you will be adding the glue mixture in small areas on one of the shoes. As you go along in this process, you will need to alternate between adding small sections of glue and sprinkling your glitter. This will make sure that the liquid craft glue doesn’t dry before you have a chance to sprinkle the glitter. Also, you will use the foam brush to spread a thin layer of this glue mixture onto a small section of the shoe. After the liquid glue is spread out on a small section of the tennis shoe, you are ready to move on to sprinkling the glitter!

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Adding the Shimmer and ShineScented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Adding the Shimmer and Shine

Finally, you are ready to start working with the glitter! So, grab your chosen craft glitter and get ready for the fun part. We decided to use a glamorous gold shade of glitter, but you can switch up the color if you have found your favorite bling. So, you will need to sprinkle the glitter onto this small section of glue before it dries. Before you continue, you may want to wait for this section to dry and see whether the glitter sticks well enough. Obviously, not all the glitter that you poured is going to stick to the shoe. But, you are going to want to make sure that most of your sparkles stick. You can fill in little patches that are empty, but this won’t work unless the sparkles are able to cover the shoe after touch ups. After you have added the glitter to this patch, you will need to repeat this process until both shoes are completely covered in glitter!

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Shake and Let Your Shoes Dry

Now that your shoes are covered in sparkles, it is time to let them set up before you can move on to the next step. First, you are going to need to shake your shoes lightly to remove the excess glitter. Since this glitter can be removed with a light shake or tap, its best to get rid of the shimmer that isn’t going to be permanent anyway. Now, you are going to need to let the freshly glittered shoes completely dry before moving on to the next step. So, you are going to want to let your shoes dry overnight. This amount of time will give your tennis shoes time dry and allows the glue to harden so the glitter will settle.

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Prepare the Hairspray Mixture

After the glitter that you’ve sprinkled on your shoes have dried completely, you will need to prepare the hairspray for this recipe. This hairspray mixture will help seal the craft glitter to your shoe. To make this hairspray mixture you are going to need at least 2 ounces of hairspray to coat the pair of tennis shoes about the size of ours. Again, you may need more for larger shoes. So, you can add this amount of hairspray to your 2 ounce bullet bottle. After, you will need to mix in 1 mL of the Tinsel Fragrance Oil. Now, you can attach the 20/410 fine mist sprayer. You need to shake these two ingredients together to make sure that the fragrance is incorporated well. Now, your hairspray mixture will be ready to use.

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Spraying the Shoes

Next, you are going to secure the glitter on the pair of tennis shoes with the newly made hairspray mixture. Since the craft glue mixture alone is not strong enough to hold the glitter on the shoes, you will be using the hairspray mixture to add the glue’s holding ability. So, spraying these glittery shoes with your hairspray mixture will help to hold the sparkly glitter to these gorgeous shoes. So, your diy glitter craft will be even more protected and your bling will last longer. Furthermore, the additional fragrance oil in the hairspray mixture will add to the overall scent to provide you with an even greater aroma!

Scented Bling Tennis Shoes Recipe: Adding the Ribbon Shoe Laces

Finally, you are going to be adding the lovely ribbons to your homemade craft. While you could use your regular, old shoe strings, the ribbon is just so much prettier! These ribbons add to the beauty of the shimmery glitter and create a gorgeous pair of shoes. Now, before you add these ribbons to your tennis shoes you need to make sure that your shoes are dry from spraying the hairspray mixture. Then, you can thread your two ribbons through each of the tennis shoes. After you finish putting in the laces your homemade glitter craft will be complete! Whether you use these shoes as a scented room decoration or wear these blingy beautifies around, we hope that you enjoy your finished shoe recipe.

Rustic Wax Melts RecipeRustic Wax Melts Recipe

Plus, it will be nice to have more of these tarts nearby for you to use later because you are not going to get enough of these delightful room scent products. So, get started and have some fun!

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: The Fragrance BlendRustic Wax Melts Recipe: The Fragrance Blend

You are going to love this aroma for the holidays. The blend of this fragrance oil with the natural herbs added to this product are absolutely amazing! First, the Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil is an exciting Christmas culinary drink scent. The wonderful aroma of mulled apple cider, fresh pineapple, and orange zests surrounded with spicy cinnamon and cloves. Furthermore, the spice notes in this fragrance oil are amplified by the real herbs that will add to the aroma as they are heated. So, these lovely herbs are not there just to look pretty. The whole clove, orange peel c/s, and the cinnamon sticks add some extra and fresh spice aroma to the fragrance to really kick it up a notch!

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Ingredients Needed From Natures Garden

Pillar of Bliss Wax- 10 Pounds
Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil
Cloves Whole
Juniper Berries Whole
Orange Peel Cut & Sifted
Cinnamon Sticks 2 3/4 inch
Silicone Soap Mold- 24 Brownie Bites

1 ounce of the Whole Cloves
41 grams of the Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil
1 ounce of the Orange Peel Cut and Sifted
24 pieces of the Cinnamon Sticks
1 ounce of the Juniper Berries

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Clean and Prepare Work Station

Before you get started on this recipe, you should clean and prepare the area that you are going to be working in. This will prevent any specs of dirt from accidentally getting into the recipe and it will make the entire process more enjoyable for you. First, cleaning and sanitizing the equipment you need and tidying the work space will keep your projects clean and beautiful. Nothing is worse than finding a spec in your design that you didn’t catch before your wax cooled. Plus, having everything ready to go will make your experience more enjoyable and stress-free! This way you can just focus on the fun of crafting.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the Double Boiler

A double boiler is the perfect way to gently heat your ingredients and this method will minimize the risk of scorching your wax. If you don’t know how to create a double boiler, then we will walk you through the simple steps! Since you are melting wax, you can use the pouring pot to hold your melting ingredients. Then, you will want to have a larger pot that the pouring pot can easily fit into with extra room on the sides. Next, add enough water to the larger pot that it touches the pouring pot, but won’t boil over. After, place the pouring pot into the larger pot. Then, add the larger pot to the stove and boil the water.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe Measure the Necessary HerbsRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Measure the Necessary Herbs

First, you are going to want to prepare the various herbs that this recipe will need. These herbs are perfect for adding to the appearance of these melts. You are going to be working with four different herbs in this recipe.  Not only will you need to prepare a mixture of herbs for the middle of the melts, but you will need to get the cinnamon sticks ready for the top of the melts. So, the two herb preparations will be needed at different steps in the process.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Prepare the Herb Mixture

You will need to prepare the mixture of herbs that will be added to the wax melts. So, take a bowl and the scale. Then, weigh out about an ounce of juniper berries, orange peel cut and sifted, and whole cloves each. After, mix these herbs together and set this bowl aside. Later, these herbs will be added to the mold cavities with the wax to create your homemade wax tarts.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Prepare the Cinnamon Sticks

Separate from the bowl of herbs, you are going to want to prepare the cinnamon sticks. You are going to need twenty-four pieces in total. However, you will be breaking each cinnamon stick into smaller bits, so you won’t need a whole lot. You can get about 2-3 pieces from each individual cinnamon stick. You should look at the size of the mold’s cavities and make sure your pieces are small enough to fit on top. Then, set these cinnamon stick pieces aside.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Melting the Candle WaxRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Melting the Candle Wax

Next, you are going to prepare the Pillar of Bliss Wax for these homemade rustic wax tarts. So, take the pouring pot and weigh out about 345 grams of the wax into it. After, you will need to melt the wax completely. So, create your double boiler and heat the pillar of bliss wax. You will want to set the heat to a make sure that the water is boiling. So, you won’t need to turn the stove temperature all the way up. Also, make sure that you stir the wax to help prevent burning.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe Adding in the Fragrance OilRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding in the Fragrance Oil

Once all of the wax melts, you can remove the pouring pot from the heat. Then, you will add a thermometer to the pouring pot. This is to make sure that the wax isn’t too hot when you add the fragrance oil. If it is too hot, then the wax could burn off notes of your fragrance oil. Obviously, you don’t want to ruin this delightful Christmas spice aroma. So, make sure the thermometer is at about 180 degrees Fahrenheit before you add the fragrance. After you reach the right temperature you can pour in 41 grams of the Christmas Wassail Fragrance Oil and stir the wax to incorporate the scented oil.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Herbs to the MoldRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Herbs to the Mold

Before you are able to pour your melted wax, you are going to add some herbs to the mold. So, you will need to retrieve the small bowl that contains the mixture of juniper berries, orange peel c/s, and whole clove. However, you will not need the cinnamon sticks quite yet. So, leave this fourth herb off to the side. Now add a bit of this mixed herb mixture into each of the twenty-four cavities. We will not need this herb mixture later, so be sure to use it all in this step. You can go back and fill in cavities that don’t have as much as others.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the WaxRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the Wax

Now, you are ready to pour the melted Pillar of Bliss Wax into the mold. So, grab your scented wax and begin pouring your wax over the herbs. You will want to fill each of the twenty-four cavities all of the way up. Be careful not to overflow, but you will want to move to the next step quickly. In the next step you will want the wax to still be liquid in the molds. So, try your best to move quickly on to the next step.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Cinnamon SticksRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Cinnamon Sticks

Now, you are going to add the pieces of cinnamon sticks to the top of the wax melts. You are going to want to move quickly before the tarts begin to set up. If not, you may not be able to get the cinnamon sticks to stay put. Also, we recommend sticking one portion of the herb into the wax melt and have the other part of the cinnamon stick poking out above the wax tart. This way the cinnamon stick can be seen from the top and adds to the rustic charm of this lovely recipe.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Removing from the MoldRustic Wax Melts Recipe: Removing from the Mold

As your pillar of bliss tarts begin to set up, you will start to see how each wax melt will look. While these tarts all include the same ingredients, each one is unique and special, like a snowflake. Once the wax cools completely the wax won’t be transparent anymore, so only the herbs on top will be seen. This will leave you with just a few of these herbs poking through. This is what gives this recipe the gorgeous rustic appearance. Finally, when the wax has completely solidified you are ready to pop the wax melts out of their molds.

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Curing Before Use

Although you may be anxious and excited to test out your finished product, those extra few days of curing is exactly what your wax tarts need to be at their best. You can technically use your creation immediately, as there is nothing wrong with them. However, the scent isn’t going to be right until it has a chance to cure! While your wax tarts are finished, you won’t get the absolute best results unless you give the product time to cure. It super easy to do and only takes a couple days. Just let your wax melts sit undisturbed as the fragrance oil settles in your creation. After, you will be so glad that you waited!

Rustic Wax Melts Recipe: Melted Snowman

One adorable thing that we noticed about this Christmas craft recipe is that it looks like a melted snowman! The cinnamon stick looks like a stick arm. Also, the juniper berries look like the coal for the buttons, mouth, and eyes. Plus, the orange peel looks like the carrot nose! I remember making snowmen with my little brother. We would make our own so we could see which one was better, but we’d end up helping each other anyway. It was always a great way to spend a snow day. While nobody is happy to see their snowman disappear, it’s really all about the fun time that you had creating your snow friend. Just like wax melts, you don’t want to melt your beautiful designs, but they smell too good not too! So, enjoy this super cute wax tart recipe that is perfect for the winter season and the holidays.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Gathering Your Pinecones

Of course, you can try to find some unscented, decorative pine cones at a store. But, it would certainly be more fun to go out and gather this part of the craft on your own. This way you have the chance to find the perfect pine cone for your ornament. This idea is especially great for kids that want to create this craft. Not only is this idea fun for kids, but it can certainly save you money from overpriced, decorative pine cones. That’s one of the beautiful things about creating pine cone ornaments, you can use the same pine cones from your yard!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Preparing the Work Area

After you have gathered all of your ingredients you can start preparing your work station. All you are going to need is a clean, flat area to create your ornament, but you are going to want to lay down something to catch the mess. So, grab either some wax paper or an old newspaper to cover your counter top. You are going to want to lay this down over your work area before you get started. This will protect the counter top from the glue and the fragrance oil. Another bonus is that laying this down will make clean up so much easier. So, you are not going to want to skip this step.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Creating the Scented Pinecone

We are going to start off by creating the pine cone portion of this recipe. Not only will this pretty pine cone ornament use the gold glitter, but this part of the holiday craft will be scented with the perfect Christmas scent, Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil. It is a wonderful blend of pine, apples and cinnamon, bayberry, holly, and a hint of vanilla. So, let’s get started!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Measuring the Liquid GluePinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Measuring the Liquid Glue

Now, we are ready to begin creating these simple Christmas ornaments. You are going to want to begin by measuring the liquid craft glue. We chose to use Elmer’s glue in our project, but any liquid craft glue that dries clear will be perfect! So, portion out about an ounce of glue into a small, glass bowl. This amount may vary slightly depending on the size of both your pine cones and plastic Easter eggs, but this is a good amount to start off with. If you happen to run out before you finish your pine cones, then you can make more later. 

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Fragrance OilPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, you are going to be adding in the wonderful fragrance oil. We chose to use our original Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil because it is a strong scent that is perfect for Christmas time. Plus, this aroma is amazing for creating homemade room scents, as it is a strong aroma. So, grab this fragrance oil and the ounce of liquid glue. You are going to add about 1-2 mL of Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil to the glue, which you can measure using a disposable pipette. Then, mix thoroughly to incorporate the scent into the glue.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Scented GluePinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Scented Glue

Now, you are going to take your pine cones and coat the whole thing in the Sleigh Ride scented glue mixture! Although only the edges will have glitter added, you can use the glue everywhere to create a stronger scent for your home this season! The more your add, the stronger the fragrance will be in your home. Just make sure that you create enough to coat the edges and remember that you can mix up more scented glue as you need it. After your pine cone has been covered well, you are ready to move on to the next step of adding the glitter.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Rolling in the GlitterPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Rolling in the Glitter

After your liquid glue has dried we are ready for the glitter! Just sprinkle an amount of this gorgeous gold glitter on your protected work area and roll your pine cones in it. The goal for this method is to cover the outer edges of the pine cone and add some lovely shimmer. Although we did add glue to places that don’t have glitter, we didn’t necessarily waste any of the glue. This scented glue will dry clear and add to the aroma of the overall recipe. So, the extra glue will create a stronger room scenting product for your Christmas Tree!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Preparing the Plastic Easter Eggs

Now, you are ready for the second part of this lovely Christmas craft! While the freshly glittered and scented pine cones are drying, you can prepare the other half of this diy Christmas ornament. You will need to take the smaller halves of the plastic Easter eggs and completely cover them with gold glitter!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding Glue to the Plastic Easter EggsPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding Glue to the Plastic Easter Eggs

Now, you are going to get the plastic Easter eggs ready for the ornament. You are only going to be using the smaller halves of the plastic eggs for these diy pine cone christmas tree ornaments. So, take these halves of the plastic eggs and cover them in unscented glue. You can wipe out and re-add the liquid glue to the same small bowl. Then, just roll or brush the glue onto each of the plastic eggs. After, set these plastic eggs some where that they can be sprinkled with glitter without making a big mess, we chose to use a large glass bowl.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Pour on the Gold GlitterPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Pour on the Gold Glitter

Next, you are going to add the gold craft glitter. Make sure that you move fast enough that the liquid glue doesn’t dry before you’re ready, because you are going to want to have a nice, even coat of glitter. Once you are ready, simply pour the gold glitter on the glue-coated plastic eggs until they have a nice layer of sparkles. Later, these beautiful, glittery plastic eggs will be added to the bottom of the pine cones!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe After the Plastic Easter Eggs DryPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe After the Plastic Easter Eggs Dry

After the plastic eggs have been coated in glitter, just leave them to dry in their place. You are going to want to wait until both the pine cones and the plastic Easter eggs have dried completely. Depending on how thick your coat of glue was, this could take some time before you are ready to move on to the next step. But, it is worth the wait because nobody wants to smudge their glitter! So, take a break and let the glitter get settled as the glue dries.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Finishing Up the Ornament

Now that both halves of your homemade Christmas ornaments have been created, it’s time to put it altogether. So, the next part of this blog will be combining the pieces and putting the finishing touches on your gorgeous holiday decorations.

Once both the plastic Easter eggs and the pine cones have completely dried, you are ready to combine the two finished pieces. You will be hot gluing the plastic Easter eggs to the bottom of each of the pine cones. So, you are going to want to start off by warming up your hot glue gun. After the glue gun is ready, you will add a line of glue to the inner perimeter of one of the plastic eggs. Quickly, move on to the next step before the glue dries.

Finally, you are ready to combine the two pieces of your diy ornament. This step will be pretty simple, but you need to be gentle to make sure your don’t accidentally remove the glitter. So, place your plastic egg half over the bottom of your pine cone. Then, hold the two pieces together for a few moments so the hot glue has an opportunity to dry. Then, repeat the gluing and combining steps with each of the remaining pine cones. Together, the pine cone and the small, plastic egg halves will create a wonderful, sparkly ornament for your Christmas Tree!

Now that your homemade ornament has both its halves put together, you need to get your craft ready to hang up on the Christmas tree! So, grab either the twine or the ribbon and let’s get started. Since we chose to use the twine, we will refer to it as such during this step. Just know that you will be using the hanging device that you chose. Now, you can take your nearly finished ornament and loop the twine around the top of the pine cone. Make sure to secure the twine around the ornament. Then, make a smaller loop at the top of the twine to make sure your new Christmas decorations can be hung up on the tree this year.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Sleigh Ride

Not only is creating some homemade Christmas crafts with our Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil a fun way to celebrate this season, but taking an actual Sleigh Ride would be absolutely perfect. Nothing compares to riding on a horse drawn sleigh through the snow on a gorgeous winter day. Every year my hometown would have a Christmas festival with crafts in the library, lights down main street, hot chocolate, and the beautiful horse-drawn sleigh. There was nothing more magical than a ride in the sleigh with a warm hot chocolate and light, fluffy snow drifting from above. This lovely tradition is just one of the many that makes Christmas so wonderful!

While you can find lovely sleigh rides all throughout the United States, this website has some of the absolute best sleigh rides around.
