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

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.

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.

It’s really a warm, yummy scent without being overpowering!
