Today's post is about a couple of new crafts i have tried out recently. The first is candle making. This craft has been on my list to try for years and i never seem to get round to it. Anyway after some fab advice off the lovely Lisa over at Kandipandi's pad i bit the bullet bought a kit of ebay containing soy wax,colouring,fragrance oil and melt trays and made some wax melts. I have to say i can't believe how easy it was and now I'm addicted!!.
I also made some heart shaped melts using a silicone ice cube tray.
At weekend we went to visit my best friend in Kent. i always like to take something homemade along so i decided to make some hand scrub. Such an easy project it will only take you 5 minutes to rustle it up.
If you want to make some you will need 2 1/2 cups of sugar (i mixed brown and white), 1 cup of sunflower oil and 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Mix it all together in a big bowl and then put into a jar.
I made this jar by taking an empty plastic jar which had a horrible red lid and added scrapbook paper to the lid then stuck a ribbon around the edge. then i decorated a wooden tag with paper and wrote on it in marker. i made a paper flower and added a brad to the centre and stuck on the top of the tag then tied with raffia tape.
