SUPPLIES:

Find soy wax and fragrance oil at Bulk Apothecary. Save $10 off your first order over $25

 

DIRECTIONS:

Using glue dots adhere wood wick clips to the center base of each jar. Insert wood wicks and cut wicks to just meet the top of the jar, set aside.

Place soy wax flakes in a metal candle pitcher. Whisk often and heat until melted. Remove from heat immediately to avoid wax becoming too hot. Let wax cool to 120°F to 125°F before pouring in fragrance oil. Stir well to combine.

Carefully pour scented soy wax into prepared mason jars. Let cool 30 minutes to 1 hour or until wax is hard and white. Place lids on jars and close.

Note: Always burn soy candles long enough for the wax to melt across the container before blowing out the flame. This will avoid a tunnel forming in the wax and lowering the life of the candle.

Yields: 4 – 4 ounce candles

Salt Dough Ornaments

Salt Dough Ornaments are a farmhouse classic. We grew up making these each year to decorate the tree and to give as gifts to teachers or family members. This year I made these with my 1 year old daughter for the 1st time. They may not be perfect in design, but their perfect in my eyes.

SUPPLIES:

  • ½ cup salt
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 cup flour
  • cookie stamp
  • cookie cutters
  • twine or ribbon
  • scissors
  • parchment paper

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl, add salt and flour. Stir to combine. Pour a half of cup of warm water into the mixture and stir well until a dough ball forms. Roll salt dough onto a sheet of floured parchment paper or pastry mat.

Cut ornaments shapes from dough using cookie cutters and press designs into shapes using cookie press. Add a whole for hanging salt dough ornaments with a straw. Place prepared salt dough ornaments onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Baked ornaments for 30 minutes and allow to cool.

Cut ribbon in 12 inches strips and thread through salt dough ornaments to hang, securing with a knot or bow.
