I’ve made it to the my last session of our DIY Christmas. This is a very simple gift to assemble and a great gift to give someone you have no idea what to give them. For the past two years we’ve given these little goody bags to our neighbors. This is a great thing to have around Christmas for yourself as well if you are planning on hosting a party or entertaining because it makes your house smell AMAZING! Everyone who received one of these last year said they really enjoyed it. Try it out for yourself!
-1/2 Cup Fresh Cranberries
-3 Cinnamon Sticks
-1 Tablespoon Ground Nutmeg
-1 Tablespoon Whole or Ground Cloves
For a Gift:
Place all ingredients in a container/bag with the following instructions for use.
– Quarter the Orange
-Add contents of bag to a small saucepan
-Fill with water
-Simmer on lowest setting
-Refill with water as needed
Here’s how mine were assembled. I used homemade tags that I made by printing some recent shots our fabulous friend Christina took for us as a pregnancy photo shoot. On the back I included the instructions for use.
There you have it. Hope these last few posts got you in the mood to make some homemade gifts for Christmas this year. It can be a lot more cost-effective and thoughtful when you just take a little time to make something for someone. If I don’t hear or see you again before Christmas-
The Merriest of Christmas’s to you and your families!
I can’t take too much credit for this last sneak peek at our DIY Christmas decor, but this is our entryway. My mom made me the 3 mini wreaths this year which I strung together with some burlap ribbon. My sister-in-law Kate is also the one who made me the sign. Holiday Greetings to all!
