Sometimes its nice to give a baked holiday gift, but you can also gift a DIY baking kit as well. I love making these as gifts because they are easy and don’t cost very much to make. The most expensive thing in this whole DIY is the actual glass you use to store the ingredients in. For this post I used a special Christmas one, but a large mason jar works well too.

 

I got the idea to make these as DIY gifts when I was at Target and noticed the large 42oz can of Quaker Quick Oats. I remembered my recipe for oatmeal cookies is perfect for storing in an airtight jar and gifting it.

 

I got the limited edition canister of Quaker Oats that’s exclusively available at Target. There’s even a coupon for Quaker Oatmeal if you choose to pick up this limited edition winter packaging. pssst – there’s a cool oatmeal recipe tucked under the lid!

Today I’m sharing another easy gift you can make that’s both simple and cheap. All you need is brown sugar, baby oil, essential oil, jelly jars and honey. I didn’t use the regular run-of-the-mill honey either – I decided to use Don Victor because I wanted a special ingredient that would make the final product special as well. I love how in each jar of Don Victor honey, there is a honeycomb in there as well.

For me, It just adds a natural aspect to the whole honey experience. I guess I’m just not used to stuff like this!

Thanksgiving Crafting with Krazy Glue

This post brought to you by Krazy Glue. All opinions are 100% mine.

"Is that kragle mommy?"

Those were the first words out of my son's mouth when he saw me working on this project – I had to laugh! He's always so curious whenever I have a project laid out, and of course wants to help. "This time, its a mommy-only project, love" I told him gently. I didn't need him getting any kragle on his delicate little fingers! Krazy Glue is too Krazy strong, Krazy fast for littles to be crafting with.

For those of you that don't know what I'm talking about, kragle = Krazy Glue according to the lego movie. Anyway, I created these two holiday masterpieces in minutes using the new craft glue by Krazy Glue and I couldn't be more excited to share with you on how I made them.

I made both a wreath and a cornucopia with a few simple things from the craft store. For the wreath, I used:

  • 1 styrofoam wreath base
  • 1 roll of burlap garland
  • 4-6 sheets of felt (orange, beige, tan & dark brown)
  • 1 bag of mini acorns
  • Rustic looking accents

I started by making some felt flowers, and I used my new X-acto knife to cut some straight strips of felt. Roll 'em up and set them aside!  Krazy Glue was the perfect medium to use because I didn't have to wait for glue guns to heat up. Its also nice that there's no glue strings or burns either!

Once I had enough flowers made with the different colors of felt I had, I began to wrap the styrofoam with the burlap,

Then using some silk leaves, I glued those down on one side to create the base for where the felt flowers would go.

It's quickly become one of my favorite decorations in the house this fall! Now for that cornucopia….

Using a wicker cornucopia from the craft store, I filled it with the leftover felt from the flowers. Around the rim, I glued down some of the silk leaves, then, I began to glue all the plastic fruits in..

I tied a pretty bow around it – makes a perfect centerpiece for Thanksgiving!
