I made this cute Christmas banner for about $1 and I wanted to share it with you. Michaels had scrapbook sheets 7 for $1 and I used 3 red sheets & 1green for this project. I also used 3 wooden letters that I painted white and a leftover piece of Christmas ribbon. Make 3 strips to the desired with and fold them each accordion style, attach both ends and flatten into a circle, glue a circle onto the back and front and decorate them with a "j", "o", "y". Glue on a piece of ribbon to hang and viola you have a super cute, cheap decoration.
I made some homemade Christmas gifts of peppermint hand scrub and wanted to share the recipe with you. I use 1 cup of white granulated sugar 1/4 cup organic coconut oil 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
Add the coconut oil into the sugar and stir until its thoroughly mixed. Add about 5 drop of pure essential oil and mix again. (I have seen people use olive oil but it has a sour smell and can spoil, so I wouldn't recommend it.) Store in a glass jar. To use: scoop out about a tablespoons worth and thoroughly scrub your hands, rinse off with warm water and towel dry, your hands will be so soft! Enjoy!!
