Before you proceed to this life, I want to remind you about the danger of using light bulbs not by purpose, because they consist of thin and fragile glass and negligently handling them can be dangerous. Danger increases with contact with food products. Therefore, I would recommend you to position this present as a decoration on the wall in the kitchen (which can be used in the "black" day).

You can put your favorite spices there and add a mini-book as an application to a gift (again homemade) with your branded recipes in which you use spicy mixes. For example, put in one "jar" a mixture for mulled wine and sign it, and in the book remind the drink recipe.

How to do?

Mix different spices and put in shape with a funnel. Before closing, wrap the hole with a small piece of foil, and then put on the lid. The metal layer will not allow to leave large slots through which the spices can be saturated. However, the foil can break through during twisting, so everything needs to be done neatly. Shake a little every jar to see if the hole was formed in the foil and if the contents do not wake up, the process was successful, and if not, repeat the foil to wear.

Polymer clay gifts

I was afraid for a long time and went by the Polymer clay face, despite its attractive features and properties. I was scared that to fix the finished product from a polymer clay needed roasting in the oven. It is known that if you do not observe the temperature regime and accidentally overload the product, then poisonous gas is separated from the clay, and the slab can be immediately thrown out.

Salt dough crafts

While working with clay, I began to think about all chemicals that should be in her and decided to make your own homemade clay. To embody my recipe just remember my childhood, because everything is so simple - you need the usual salt dough (a little more salted).

Here is an accurate recipe:

  • 1 cup of flour;
  • 1½ cup of salt;
  • 1 cup of water (perhaps a little more or a little less).

Mix salt and flour in a bowl. Add water to the cup at a time, mixing well. Perhaps you do not need all the water, or you may need a little more, depending on the humidity and temperature in the working area. Form the ball, then remove it from the bowl and rinse a bit. It must be solid, but pliable. You can intervene the desired color now, or make it later on the finished product after firing, covering it from top of the paint (or use two ways at once).

Such a dough and similar to him can be made in a large party in advance and frozen in a cellophane packet at zipper. Keep in mind that after removing from the freezer on the surface of the test, condensate appears - moisture - which you want to dry before use. After defrosting the dough, the dough will become a little harder and more crumbly, so you need to pay more time to smash it for work. If the dough is too sticky, put it on the cutting board and cut a little flour.

Usually a gift for the holidays with their own hands is either some kind of exotic food, or candles, since both of these options are always needed and there are not many of them! Since sometimes sweets are not quite suitable for a special person or case, the position will save the candles - it works well enough.

Fragrant candles for a romantic setting

Fragrant candles for a romantic setting

There are three reasons why I like to give homemade candles to friends for holidays. First, they are amazingly customizable: there are many different oils and dyes for fragrances to choose from, and you can decorate your jar as you like!

Show fantasy to create mood

Show fantasy to create mood

Then they are very easy to do, and therefore the process does not take much time. This is just a question of mixing, heating and fill (and possibly decorations). Most of the time you spend on the manufacture of candles is the process of waiting, when the wax melts, then when it freezes after the fill. At best, the whole gift will cost you at 100-150 rubles, but the aesthetics will be at the height.

Wonderful gift for heat and coziness

Wonderful gift for heat and coziness

Manufacturing a large number of candles of incites will be the most economical enterprise.

That's what you need:

  • Soy candle wax (or wax for candles according to your choice);
  • Candle wick;
  • Ceramic tableware;
  • Hot glue;
  • A small piece of cardboard that will keep wick;
  • Pan and glass bowl for water bath;
  • Food thermometer;
  • Oven;
  • Fragrant oil;
  • Dyes (optional);
  • The container with the spout (optional).

Before you start, make sure you have the appropriate type and the size of the wick for the size and type of the candle you do. If you use soy wax, make sure that your wick is suitable for soy candles. If the form of a candle is wide, make sure that your wick is wide enough in diameter for optimal burning. In most crafts, where you can find these materials, the packaging will make recommendations on the type and size of the wick, which you must use depending on your project (all this is much easier than it seems).

Step 1

Start trample wax. I used soy wax, which melted on a water bath with a bowl, which placed in a saucepan with boiling water. Melt wax, holding a flame on medium and low level. Never leave melting wax unattended!

Wax messes faster, if you crush it into small pieces

Wax messes faster, if you crush it into small pieces

Step 2.

While wax melts (and while you follow your wax), secure the wick at the bottom of your bank. Apply a little hot glue into the center of the bank and keep it until it dry.

Step 3.

Secure your wick in such a way that it stands vertically. I used the cardboard, as a lid on a jar, cutting out a round shape and breaking through the wick hole in the center. Then I cut off part of the circle to pour hot wax. Make a knot on the wick, if it is very thin and there is a possibility of its fall.

Instead of cardboard you can use a pencil

Instead of cardboard you can use a pencil

The homemade lock, I was glued with hot glue (do not be afraid, dried hot glue, applied to the glass, relatively easy to clean when you finish). This is just one of several ways to balance the wick.

Step 4.

When your wax melts, let him cool down a little before adding dyes (if desired) and aroma. Wax, purchased in craft stores, usually comes with an instruction that recommends the perfect temperature to add fragrances and dyes to wax depending on the type you use.

For my wax, it was recommended to add fragrant oil when the wax reaches a temperature of 40-60 degrees. Do not add oil into hot wax, also because some flavors can lose their smell when contact with high temperature fluid.

While the wax is soft, you can adjust the position of the wick

While the wax is soft, you can adjust the position of the wick

To speed up the cooling process, I poured my hot wax to a measuring cup to measure the temperature with a spout.

If you bought special flavors or dyes intended for the manufacture of candles, they must contain recommendations on how much you need to use, considering the volume of the wax with which you work.

If you have standard essential oil in bottles with a dispenser, then I propose to navigate your own taste, and, starting from the first 5 drops, add a few drops, stirring and breathing the resulting fragrance. Continue the experiment until the desired saturation is obtained.

Step 5.

Pour the wax to the jar and let him cool.
