Our Favorite Christmas CraftsOur Favorite Christmas Crafts

Christmas time is really a hectic time of year. Decorating, card writing, the kids’ Christmas programs and shopping, it’s amazing that it is the happiest time of year! Plus, most of us like to get crafty this time of year. Nothing says love like creating something special with a specific person in mind or a whole bunch of people in mind! If you need some Christmas gift inspiration, then check out some of our favorite Christmas crafts! These crafts are easy to make, yet give the impression that you spent a lot of time creating them. So if you are a busy elf during the crazy holiday season, then give these recipes a try. You will not only impress the people on your gift list, but you will impress yourself as well!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free ChristmasOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free Christmas

Most of us in today’s world, have the idea that Christmas has to be picture perfect. We watch the movies on the Hallmark Channel and expect our Christmas to be just like on TV.

However, we don’t live our lives scripted. It’s always important to remember that the Christmas tree doesn’t have to look like Martha Stewart decorated it. Our Christmas cookies do not need to look like they came straight out of Bon Appetit magazine. Christmas is a beautiful time to simply spend with loved ones. Those will be the memories that your children can cherish and remember when they grow older. It’s not about how perfect the ornaments were hung on the tree. It’s about the memory you have of each ornament that you hang on those branches. It isn’t about how perfectly edged the icing was on the cookies. It’s about how awesome those cookies tasted no matter how much icing Junior glopped onto the snowman shaped cookie.

Enjoy your holidays! Take some shortcuts when it comes to having friends or family over. It’s okay to have something that’s not made from scratch! Homemade gifts don’t have to say you don’t have the funds to buy elaborate gifts. If you create things for certain people in mind, then you have given something to somebody that says, “I took my time and love to make you something I knew you would enjoy.” That type of Christmas is perfect in every way. Follow this link to read up on how to have a stress free Christmas before you start running in a million directions!

 

 

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Candle Recipe

Our first recipe is our Candy Cane Candle Recipe. This is truly a fun candle to have on your tabletop during the Christmas season. This is a simple candle to create. We used our awesome Joy Wax. Joy Wax is a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is easy to work with, even if you’ve never made candles before. Our Joy Wax has a wonderful hot and cold throw. It has a nice creamy finish and sets up beautifully in your containers. The candy cane candle is layered in pink, red and white with a fluffy, whipped wax topping! Yes, you can create fluffy whipped toppings with this wax. To complete the “candy” theme of the candle, we placed two swirled candy embeds made from our Pillar of Bliss. Pillar of Bliss is also a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is perfect for creating embeds or wax melts. It hardens up nicely to allow for easy release from molds.

We have scented the candle in our Candy Cane fragrance oil. This scented oil is a yummy blend of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, strawberries and vanilla. This fragrance is a must for any type of Christmas projects you have in mind!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Facial MaskOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Candy Cane Facial Mask

This  Candy Cane  Facial Mask recipe makes eight 4 oz jars which is the perfect amount to give to your girlfriends or to make for a Christmas party to hand out as party favors. This face mask has some wonderful skin therapy ingredients such as Kaolin Clay, Rose Clay, Beet Root and Hibiscus Flower Powder. We also used some Peppermint Essential Oil and Vanilla Powder for fragrance. It is a yummy smelling combination! Your skin will be glowing and refreshed after just one use! While we did layer it to have the look of a candy cane, the powders and clays will combine once you start using it, however, it will still smell divine. Just like a stick of peppermint candy!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath CookieOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Bath Cookie

You just have to have cookies at Christmas time! It’s a necessary thing. So how about some cookies at bath time? Our Christmas Bath Cookies look and smell yummy enough to eat, and are perfect to entice little ones to take a bath! These bath cookies are very similar to bath bombs. The fizz and bubble and will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good! We have used cocoa butter, mango butter, kaolin clay powder, and baking soda to name just a few of the ingredients. Your skin is going to feel amazing after your bath! We chose our Christmas Cookies fragrance oil that smells exactly like a freshly baked, buttery Christmas Cookie! Of course, cookies need frosting, right? Our “frosting” is our whipped soap that we used some of our FUN Soap colorant. With some Christmas colored sprinkles to top it off, your bath cookies are complete!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Coffee Wax Melts RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Coffee Wax Melts Recipe

This recipe is perfect in that they are quick and easy to make, plus the recipe makes plenty to share between friends and family! How cute would these look gifted in a sweet little Christmas bag and tied with a pretty bow?

In fact, the base is scented in our French Vanilla Coffee which is the aroma of coffee, cream and vanilla, while the top part is scented in our Snickerdoodle Cookies Fragrance Oil.

Quick and easy to make, we have used melt and pour soap base in Goat’s Milk and Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Simply melt down your soap, color, scent and layer. For the confetti part, we used some melt and pour with added vegetable glycerin. This helps make the soap more pliable allowing you to easily cut the colored part of the soap into little squares to resemble the confetti. For the pretty whipped topping, we used our Whipped Soap base and sprinkled some more confetti soaps on top. Our fragrance of choice is our Fruitcake Fragrance Oil. This scent smells of candied fruit, cake, sugar and vanilla! Mmmmm! This recipe makes one 4 pound loaf and then can be sliced up and wrapped for gift giving!

I can never say it enough! You can’t have too many bath bomb recipe ideas in your recipe box. Plus, they really are a fun gift for the kids.

The kids could help make them as well.  Also, these bath bomb ingredients aren’t harsh and are perfectly safe for young skin.  These bath bombs are made into Christmas tree shapes with pretty colored Christmas “balls” decorating the branches. Also, these bath bomb ingredients are gentle enough to use on kids’ soft skin.

You will also smell base notes of fresh cut evergreens, and sprigs of bright, cheery holly berry.

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Wreath Fire Starter RecipeOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: Christmas Wreath Fire Starter Recipe

I know one of my favorite things to have is a fire in my fireplace. Not just at Christmas time, but all winter long! Getting a fire started can be intimidating. Most people will use a fire starter log, but they can get expensive if you have a lot of fires during the winter season. Create some of our Christmas Wreath Fire Starters and you will be happy you did. This recipe will make 11 cupcake size fire starters and the best thing about these? They are scented! Fire starter logs won’t give you that! We made these starters using Pillar of Bliss and our Christmas Wreath Type fragrance oil. A perfect blend of fresh cut boughs of pine, balsam, holly berry and earthy pinecones along with notes of orange and cinnamon. We also included some cut and sifted Nettle Leaf and whole Juniper Berries to enhance the Christmas Wreath fragrance oil.

We chose our Pleasingly Pumpkin fragrance oil to scent these fire starters. Pleasingly Pumpkin is a sweet, creamy combination of pumpkin puree with warm notes of butter and sweet vanilla cream. It’s really a warm, yummy scent without being overpowering!

Face Lifting Mask

DIY Face Lifting Mask TipsDIY Face Lifting Mask Tips

Using a face lifting mask for a truly excellent face lift at home will help you cleanse your pores and refresh your skin in a wonderful way. It will take some work but you can really enjoy this after a long and relatively tiresome day. You will need to make use of a blender when you prepare the mask, but all in all it happens to be a fairly easy thing to make if you have the time and inclination. All you need to create your masterpiece are the following materials:

  • A ripe, peeled banana and half an apple should be placed inside your blender, as well as about a teaspoon worth of lemon juice as well and roughly four teaspoons of honey. Once you have this ready, blend it into a smooth mix and pour it into a bowl. You should add some boiled and cooled oatmeal into the mix to complete its transformation. You can use some of the mix to spread it on your face, but you will need to ensure you have the right level of thickness on it to completely ensure you can benefit from using it. You can cover the mix and leave it for later in your fridge to cool down.
  • Once you have that done, you will need to move on to the next step on your list,  properly cleaning your face and finishing the job of keeping your pores freshened up. You can do that by using a cloth soaked in some hot water. Squeeze it out and spread it over your face, allowing its moisture to open your pores, letting the mask do its job more effectively overall. Doing so will help you a great deal as you will notice after you’re done using it.
  • Once the previous step is complete, use a dry and soft cloth to pat you face dry, then spread the mask around your face using your fingers. Since your mixture will harden as it dries out, you should not massage too hard. Do so just enough to ensure the exfoliation of your skin, allowing the mask to clean your face more effectively. The mask will need to stay on your face for the next twenty minutes if you want to easily move on to your next step.
  • Rinsing the mask when you’re done with some lukewarm water should allow you to almost finish the job. You can also use cold water, ice cubes and something similar that happens to be cold to close your pores when you’re done. Pat your face dry and you will deal with this last step.
  • You may also decide to use some toner after you’re done with your face mask, as it will help you remove the residue left after you’re done with it. You will need to restore the pH balance of your skin, so use some cotton balls and apply it to your face to avoid it drying out in the end. Once all of this is complete you can focus on kitchen cleaning and floor cleaning if you managed to spill some of the mask on the floor by accident.
