There is a a predetermined amount of magic, care and particular idea which goes into a present you make yourself and you’ll be able to entice other buddies or your children that will help you out to discuss the encounter, especially if you are giving to charity or the neighborhood school fete. The options are endless – so get your artwork on by adding your own unique touch and beginning with our ideas below.
HOME MADE BODY PRODUCTS – Making your own beauty products is not more difficult than it seems! It is also an economical method of giving the extended family a present to a Christmas that comes from the heart and not from the pocket. For this particular present you’ll be able to use those old jars you have been keeping (and when you have not now is a great time to begin). Just dress up your present with twine or some thread and attach a label to it (it is also possible to make these yourself if you are feeling crafty that is extra).
There is for a body scrub you might want to try a truly straightforward recipe using a 2:1 ratio of sugar that is melted to coconut oil with sugar being the bulk ingredient. When you own a lemon lying around or combine these together to form a paste and add several drops of your favourite essential oil, press several globules of lemon juice in.
For the guys in your lifetime, try this Rosemary Mint Shaving Cream. You will want: 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil which you’ll melt together in a pan on a low heat until just melted & 1/3 Cup Shea Butter. Add in Sweet Almond Oil or 1/4 Cup Jojoba and 10 drops of Rosemary essential oil. Stir to combine. Put the mix in the fridge until solid whisk until light and fluffy and subsequently remove. Spoon into a jar and keep in a cool, dry area.
HOME MADE ARTWORK – Even in the event that you are not the best painter on the planet (or even in the room), it is still possible to impress your gift recipient using a piece of artwork worth hanging. Attempt recreating the graphic on the left by buying a part of card the canvas size of your choice, to really go over the top (in this particular case as large as you want image of your choice or your apple) and any paint colour of your choice. Choose your card and draw the outline of an apple including the stalk. You may have a couple efforts at this until you get it right afterward once you are content with your outline cut out the shape with a Stanley knife or scissors. Cut two little spaces at the center of your apple as these will be the pips out. Put the card over paint and your canvas being mindful the canvas does not move and no paint goes underneath your cardboard cut out (you actually need sharp borders). Now paint in your ‘pips’. You only have to do around the border of the pips as well as the card before you paint your preferred colour to the border of the sailcloth and can pull the card away.
