For a Homemade Christmas, I have to get started on gifts early. Here is a list of many homemade gifts to choose from, with tutorials on how to make them.

Doing this for our family ornament this year! Family Fingerprint Ornament: 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, cold water. Mix until has consistency of play dough. Bake at 250 for 2 hours, then cool and spray with metallic paint.

How to Make Homemade Bath Fizzies 8 oz Baking Soda 4 oz Citric Acid {found in health food stores} 4 oz Cornstarch 4 oz Epsom Salts 3/4 tsp Water 2 tsp Essential Oil {your choice} Food Coloring {if desired}

In a large bowl, mix to combine: 6 parts coarse sea salt; 3 parts epsom salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation; and 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation. Add a few drops of essential oils, and combine. Add a few drops of food coloring, until you achieve the desired shade. If you intend to present the bath salts as gifts, be sure to store them in a stoppered and labeled container to keep out moisture.
