Handmade gifts for christmas

December 1, 2011

I'm a crafty, make it myself, kind of person and have been surfing the net for ideas for handmade Christmas gifts.  I stumbled on  Heidi's Handmade Gifts from the Heart blog hop, where she wants to share ideas for anything handmade for Christmas.  I usually make up a few gifts in a jar, so today I'm sharing with you some that i have made up thus far. 

I had some mason jars left from summer canning  I filled those with Epsom's salt and scented it with lavender or eucalyptus essential oil.  I dug through some scrap material and embellished it with bows, bulbs, and bells. 

Who wouldn't want to enjoy a nice relaxing soak, in a hot tub of water scented with lavender on a cold evening????

All made up and ready to give..................

I'm linking this up to Heidi's blog hop, so join me in admiring these handmade gifts.

  1. Sheryl,
    Those are almost too pretty. I LOVE what you've done to fancy them up. Thanks for sharing to the hop too. I am going to "borrow" your decorating ideas for a few of my own jars. They are just perfect.

  2. That's a great ideal. A warm lavender bath on a cold night sounds good to me.

  3. Those are SOOO pretty! I never think of adding anything but a jar topper and a piece of ribbon! LOL!!
