If you read my post on Sunday about making candles and soap, perhaps you’re wondering how it all turned out? Well, wonder no more! I posted tutorials for both over on Dealectica. Here’s a little sneak peak:
Candle Luminaries // Yes, these are the same candles you saw solidifying on the kitchen counter on Sunday. In the future, I think I will skip the whole candle-making part and just do the holders–they’re really easy and I think they turned out well. In fact, I kind of wish I made one for myself.
Melt-and-Pour Soap // Rather than using lye or waiting for the soap to cure, I made melt-and-pour soap with pre-made soap bases. All you need to do is add fragrance or essential oils. Easy! I wrapped each bar of soap in handmade paper and sealed the packaging with a vellum label–perfect for gift-giving!
Did you make any holiday gifts this year? Or do you usually stick to buying your presents?
