The holidays may seem far away, but they will be here before you know it. If you plan on creating homemade gifts for family, friends and loved ones, now is the time to get started. Crafting gifts early cuts down on stress and makes the holiday season more enjoyable. With a little preparation, this will be the year for a handmade holiday!
One of the easiest ways to get a jump on Christmas crafting early. Handmade products make fabulous gifts. The tutorials below feature four projects: melt and pour, lotion, sugar scrub and bath bombs.
Find the adorable snowflake melt and pour tutorial here. Made with Brilliant Blue LabColor and Iridescent Glitter, these guest sized soaps are full of holiday cheer. If you’re looking for a great bath bomb recipe, click here and here for the tutorial.
You can find the instructions for the easy sugar scrub here and here. For instructions on how to make the rich lotion, check out the Gift Series Lotion Tutorial. If you have never made lotion before, the How to Make Lotion From Scratch Soap Queen TV video will walk you through the process.
Share your best handmade gift from years past; let’s put together an inspiring list of ideas!
